Hernias are gross. Devin Appelo, who’s 27-years-old, and lives in Portland, Oregon, had one once. It’s a tear in your stomach muscles, or, in Devin’s case, more like a hole. He skated with it anyway, and, knowing how Appelo skates, he’s probably lucky his stomach didn’t explode.
Apello, a Creature Skateboards am, is good and healthy now, working full-time as a car and motorcycle mechanic, racing motocross and shredding when he can. Everybody is lucky his stomach didn’t explode.
