lmao. Damn, sucks to be that guy.

My friend had his front wheel come off when he was doing a manual once, luckily he wasn't going fast and didn't get hurt.

edit- I spy three promising videos to the right

His axle could of snapped but i doubt it was that he probably needed to tighten his axel nuts. As for your rim sounds like the hub is about go, I have broken many a hubs and the symptons you descibe sound just like that.

my face hurts.

and as for the hub you probally need to tighten the nuts,or axle cones(whatever theyre called), on either side of the hub. You'll most likely need 2 cone wrenchs to do it.

The worst skateboard wreck ive ever seen was back a few years ago when my freinds and i were all into skateboarding (and i didnt ride as much). It was the Flip skateboard company's 'Sorry' and this guy Arto something missed this rail and completely killed himself.
The footage was so bad, they made it into a cartoon that was less violent.

When he fell, he hit his head, got up, threw up everywhere, i think he pissed and **** himslef, then went uncounsious.

He fell similiar to how Ian Monrowe(sp?) fromt he Kink team did, except he wasnt out for that long...
