Sunrise star Sam Mac has piled it up during a disastrous trip to a skateboarding school in Sydney.

The weather host tried a trick live on the Channel Seven breakfast show when it all went horribly wrong.

“I want to roll in, as we say in the skateboarding world, from two feet tall,” he told co-hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr as they looked on from the studio before attempting the “death-defying” stunt.

Sam then took off and quickly climbed up a ramp before losing his footing, causing him to temporarily become airborne before landing heavily on the ground.

“Why are you idiots doing this? Where’s the fun?” he asked the skateboarders who hurried to help.

“You know what, even when I was relieved, I knew it would end like this, but I was still surprised when I ended up on the ground!”

Kochie and Nat were quick to check that their colleague was “okay” before bursting out laughing when Sam assured that he had not been harmed.

“He did not jump right, did he? It just went smash. Love it,” Kochie said.

The funny crash came seconds after Sam had been hit in the legs with a flying skateboard.

The presenter interviewed a young skateboarder before another crashed into the background and shot a board directly into him.

“Oh it really hurt, it really hurt,” Sam shook.

“You’re lucky, I have very strong calf muscles from representing Australia at international level schoolboys football,” he joked.

Sam then compared the incident to a similar one back in 2014 involving Channel Seven host Mike Amor.

Cupid was hit in the head with a flying board on California’s iconic Venice Beach, where the clip went viral around the world at the time.

“This reminds me that Mike Amor was hit in the head many years ago and he recovered fine,” he said.
