Seriously, The 2002 DC Video left everyone speachless but this, no one could have ever predicted that this was possible.

To recap:

Right, just so you guys know, this guy, medically, shouldn't be able to walk.

"I was surfing a sand bar on a small day. I dove in under a wave that was only a foot deep and I crunched my head into my chest. I had some trauma to the spinal cord, swelling of the brain stem and neurological problems. It affected all kinds of things - my organs, eyesight, hearing, taste, everything."
He was apparently told he wouldn't be able to walk again.

But having recovered from the neck injury he went and wons the Tampa Pro Vert Competition.

Wiki:

On July 9, 2005, Danny Way completed a 360 across the Great Wall of China with a broken ankle.

He won silver in the 2008 X Games Big Air. He did this after taking a brutal spill during his second attempt, which apparently left him with a broken foot. Even with his injury, he completed his last three runs, landing runs 3 and 5 much to everyone's surprise

With the help of Rob Dyrdek, Danny Way became the record holder for the fastest land speed on a skateboard
DON'T google his list of other injuries, it made me feel ill :eek:

Plan B's "Questionable"

Got the special edition re-issue DVD. One of the best videos of all time, certainly the most influential. Love all the secions in that. Duffy's rails, Mullens mad tech stuff and Mike Carrol killing EMB
