Too often articles and news stories about our beloved sport make us out to look like crazy lunatics with a death wish. The sport scares people. Usually the media only reinforces this.

But this article comes out a little sunshinier. If that is a word. As Juice Dersham says:

“Death-defying; waiting for a crash; this is kind of a joke, but eating your scabs and listening to Slayer music: That’s kind of how a lot of people perceive what we do,” Dersham said. “That in itself holds people back from doing it, when, in all reality, we have one of the most safe action sports that there is.”

Well said sir, well said.
