Pro skater Aaron “Jaws” Homoki is the next to star in The Berrics‘ ongoing “Battle Scars” series, where he chronicles his worst slams and injuries in his skate career.

“Jaws” opens by explaining the time he ruptured his spleen, an injury he claims would have cost him his life had he put off going to the hospital to the next day. The slam not only ruptured his spleen but caused internal bleeding. The pro continues to discuss his ankle rolls, breaking his teeth by kneeing his chin coming off a rail landing, and landing on his genitals which eventually caused bleeding.

The skater accomplished skateboarding history when he gapped the famous Lyon 25 staircase to secure the “world’s biggest ollie” achievement back in 2016. Before accomplishing it, “Jaws” recalls the attempts before, one of which split his board and tore his MCL, but “hurt his soul” more than his body. Throughout the storied video, however, Homoki remains lighthearted amidst his recollections.

Watch the video above and view the rest of the “Battle Scars” clips over at The Berrics.
