Sorry for being the bringer of bad news, but..

If you dont know who Danny Way is, he is a skateboarder famed for his pioneering of the Mega-Ramp and has also completed jumps across the Great Wall Of China and Dropped off the Guitar At the Hard Rock Cafe.

For anyone who knows of the legend that is Danny Way, he has injured himself quite badly during a practice session for a mega ramp contest. The fall left him with a broken vertebrae, he is recovering but doctors say Way will be sidelined for up to 6 months—which could be anywhere from 3-4 months in Danny Way time.

I wish him well and was just wondering if any UG'ers were a fan.

[EDIT:] Just to show how tough Way is, he had this bail a few months back and still managed to go and win a silver medal at the same event wow!

No doubt he will be back on the board soon enough.

Yeah, that was the second one I think, with the kick ass hensley segment. doesn't he (hensley) do a huge manual roll, ollie one of those picnic benches and then keeps the roll going for another half an hour?

Way blantanly must have slammed trying to land that 900 tho, they cut the slo mo just before he gets straight again. Bloody close tho, and everybody was floored at the time that he could get that far. It was considered impossible.

Talented kid, I mean bloke.

EDIT - I havent seen those vids since they came out - still remember them.

LOL - I know, I've been on youtube since last post!

Aye, big steep tails, no noses, concave that you could bath in - they were mens boards all right

My mate sent me a montage of Mike Valelly beating people up a year or so back - hilarious, he used to be such a hippy!

I met Ron Allen once - he told me this joke:

Lucky guy.
Glad he didn't come out as bad as Stephen Murray did.

Damn that's a shame. I've always been quite the fan of his. That mega-ramp is insane, I guess a serious injury was just waiting to happen though.

Dannngg... hopefully the reports are true about his recovery-- he has had more than his fair share of injuries over the years between skating and surfing...

ah man your lucky those lance mountain decks are solid gold! My first deck was this cheap ass piece of crap that i bought from a market in Blackpool whilst on holiday there, it had no brand on it so i have no idea what make it was but the graphics were some major cheesy typical skater dude skelton. Got some good times off it though : ) Sadly though i snapped it while skating it a few years back in the snow for some stupid reason. (and coincidentally its snowing now!)

I'm pretty sure I remember watching a Danny Way bio saying he's done his back in a while agothat took him 6 months or so to recover from.

I feel your pain - my first skateboard was one of those suckers with the big rock hard plastic wheels and a skeleton on it from Blackbushe Market, near Farnborough. I suffered with that bad boy for about a year

Snowing eh? hasn't made it south yet - I hope it does later, take the car out for a spin

If he had just landed a few feet further he could have walked away without a scratch. But yeah he's bound to get hurt once in a while with the crazy **** he does.

Danny Way is tougher than diamonds, but a spine injury could easily ruin his career. I used to skate all the time, but after having spine surgery to correct my kyphosis, I can't even jump down the last step when I'm walking down the stairs without wincing. I can't bend either.

But Danny Way is basically Wolverine, he heals so fast. I really hope he comes back just fine, but realistically, it will be next to impossible.
