In the history of blading, there are a handful of sections which end with a crash so terrible that the resulting injury does indeed end the skater’s career. Rik van Huik’s incredible section in the Adaptteam video is one of these, and that crash one of the worst you’ll get to see. Filmed by Cavin Brinkman, the section itself, however, is packed with big rails, big gaps, big spins, big everything, and is arguably Rik’s very best profile ever!
“Two years ago, Rik shattered his hip while filming for the Adapt Team Movie. Although this has left a big mark on this otherwise amazing project, we are happy to say Rik is in perfect shape and still managed to pull off this amazing section. Well done, Rik!”
