Big Jump, Crash Landing

BloodyEyeAdamBarton

Tabletop jumps make for some amazing aerials. But as Adam Barton now knows: the bigger you go, the higher the risk, the greater the chances of impending doom.

“I overshot the landing, landed flat-footed and ejected forward out of my skis.”

Instinctively, Adam covered his face with his hands.

“This didn’t really help, considering my pole handle was in my left hand when it hit the snow.”

A classic face-plant followed.

“The lenses on my Wisdom™ goggles cracked but didn’t shatter. My nose looked like I’d just stepped out of the boxing ring but nothing was broken. Thanks for building a product that performs as advertised.”
