Going home from school today, decided to check out the surf... Alot of sand had blown into the carpark, like...ALOT and it had built up in one area. I got off and went for a walk around checking a couple surf spots then came back to my bike...just then a group of 6 or 7 surfy guys pulled up and were watching me as i took off. I decided to show off (mistake one) and take off fast...on sand (mistake 2)...the back wheel started spinning wildly and went out to the left, I tried to counter it with the front wheel and it started to slide aswell, I turned the front wheel to the left and the bike swung around, I was now sliding, and heading towards a parked car...(only going about 5-10km/h).. I jammed my right foot down on the ground, and pushed the bike back up straight and straightend the wheel...the bike rolled on....I was soo nervous i decided to stop about a minute later, went into a shop and bought a nice cold water, and sat and relaxed for 5 mins before i left again... SO basically...Taken from luck and added to expirience: - NEVER show off... - NEVER show off on sand. - be VERY cautious when there is sand on the road.. Anyone have tips on how i could have got out of this better? inb4 l2ride noob.
