Thinking back to my first time seeing someone skate a handrail, it may have been the scariest thing ever at the time! Rails were never something I personally took interest in but the dedication and commitment to someone skating handrails is incomparable to anything else. Skaters put their bodies at risk jumping down bigger and bigger rails every day. And theres a fine line between success and failure when it comes down to it. Some come out victorious, and others feel the wrath of the hard pavement at the bottom of the stairs.
