Whether you are about to get on a skateboard for the first time or are a pro, falling is an inevitable part of the sport. And, its where injuries can occur. Trying to prevent injury is not only good safety but can save you from having to sit out from skateboarding for a season because your leg is in a cast.
One smart trick to learn is how to fall without injuring yourself. Always try to land on a fleshy part of your body, and try to roll with it. Try not to use your hands, wrists or arms to break your fall. It will take practice because its natural to put your hands out, but breaking that reflex could save you a lot of pain in the long run.
