Some things just go together so perfectly, like pancakes and syrup, chicken and waffles, bread and butter, or being on a skateboard and then falling off a skateboard. That last one is a match made in heaven, and we’re grateful to heaven for making it.

This EXTREME(!) compilation comes to us from “AFV,” and it features some absolutely bonkers skateboarding fails. Skateboarders love to film themselves so they can prove to their friends that they pulled off a really difficult trick. This is good news for people who enjoy laughing at the misfortune of others — people like us — because for every trick a skateboarder successfully executes, there are 50 humiliating wipe-outs, which means there’s an abundance of hilarious footage out there for us to enjoy.

Don’t try this at home, kids.
