Nitro Circus tour over for World Champion Matt Brind

Apparently he woke up in a hospital with a broken jaw from a nasty landing. Please send all your positive healing vibes Matt's way so he can return to the hill soon.

I know the air bag we use in the USA demos is not to bad ones you get the hang of how to hit it.......get low and put your sholder into the bag like a football (USA) player.....never had a prob.

Thanks for the support guys, it really means a lot! Hoping to fly back home tomorrow so things are looking good :)

As to how I got broken by an air bag, I think I remember saying it was too hard and slightly remember/made up/figured I must have been sliding sideways on my hands and knees, my board went under it and all that hit the bottom was my head which got rebounded jaw first into the concrete floor......good times!

Up until then I had been jumping bs 90 onto it, bouncing off and continuing the 180, landing back in regular riding away back to the roll in - it was pretty fun!
