sad news, kids

Fellow Virginian Justin Metcalf (A.K.A. Stinee) has unfortunately had a terrible crash while freeriding. He is currently in an induced coma but is in stable condition. He was on a trip to MT Baker and is currently in the Seattle Hospital.
Andrew from Ontario witnessed the crash
"Justin hit the ground at about 70-75km/h, around 40mph? he slid about 20-30 feet and rolled over the embankment, 
He was wearing his Icaro. The chin guard is broken on both sides. We initally thought he had broken his jaw from the crash (i couldn't see how he fell because of a cloud of dust). "
 This is a terrible tragedy in the longboarding world so send him your love and hope he is back on his board soon.
I will post more info as I get it.
