Corey Duffel: how to Duffelbag your video part.
BROKE IN VEGAS
While bombing down a ditch my wheel came off and I fell to flat, dislocating my sternoclavicular joint and breaking my collarbone. Off to a great start for this video!
Broke my tibia while trying to skate a horrid hubba, desperate for a photo in the mag. I was also banned from #skatetuesdays because I bailed on the park session and barbecue to film. Staba says that's what you get for bailing on #skatetuesdays.
TOUGH TIMES IN TALLAHASSEE
I spent the night in county jail for trying to skate a spot and bruised my heel bone so bad I couldn't skate for three months. America's wang was out to get even with "Hollywood."
FOOT-PLANTAR FASCIITIS IN TJ
Feeling good and skating with some homies in Tijuana, I saw a big gap to ollie down. Heaven knows I need a few big ollies in this Oddity video. Turns out, jumping off something 12-feet tall with no warm up or insoles and while getting kicked out is not so good at my age. I snapped my plantar fascia ligament in half. Doctors didn't even know how I was walking. "In a lot of pain," I said--six months of spinning records and recovery time.
Ever sacked a rail and had your leg get twisted around the down bar? Well, it sucks and you're stoked if it never happens. My balls visited my stomach and my MCL blew out. Video part still on my mind and I can't wait to recover.
Two cases of pneumonia in 2016. The first time took me out for over six weeks and the doctor told me I was lucky I didn't die in my sleep.
If you have these you know they love to give you a bad day.
I had a surgery to correct my deviated septum after having it broken a few times. This surgery sucks and it didn't do anything other than keep me off my shred sled for a month.
My goal in 2016 was to learn proper back threes. Ladies and gentlemen, stretch before violently twisting over and over and thinking you are Ethan Fowler. Pinched a nerve in my back.
A JERK CALLED LIZ FRANK
Social media is a curse. I was being told I was slacking and needed to up my Insta game. Goofing off at a spot, I got a friend to shoot a trick of me. We got hecka likes on Instagram but in the process I tore my Lisfranc ligament in my foot, preventing me from filming a part and a guaranteeing a gnarly operation in the future. I hope you never meet this jerk called Liz Frank!
