Here at Onboard it is rare that we post anything remotely related to the Dark Arts of Two Planking. However, when we saw this video clip of an Austrian skier falling off a cliff we just had to post it.
When we were sent this over the weekend we were all like ‘Oh, this’ll be fun. A skier getting worked. Ho ho ho.’ But when it starts and you see the backside of the rider we thought, ‘Nah, there’s no way he’s falling down that. He’d be dead.’ But then the guy clips in and starts sliding backwards… ‘Oh my god, he’s definitely dead.’ Somehow, though, the guy managed to get away with it although we don’t know for sure what injuries he suffered. But he’s moving, for sure, and it looks like he used up not only his own nine lives standing up after that, but also those allotted to the People’s Republic of China. While we know we like nothing more than poking a bit of fun at our tall-tee’d friends, we’re seriously stoked this guy survived. Heavy.
When you’re negotiating knife-edged peaks of death, make sure you keep your wits about you.
