Slang dictionary full send [fool send] Published April 25, 2019 What does full send mean? YOLO! If you do something full send, especially in extreme sports, you’re doing it it full-throttle and with 100% commitment—even if you end up failing.

Julian Finney / Getty Images In rock climbing, a send is a run in which a climber completes a route without falling or resting. To send is to complete such a run. The term—said to originate in climbing slang in the 1990s and possibly inspired by the notion of sending as “delivering” on a promise—spread to snowboarding, skiing, mountain-biking, and skateboarding. In these extreme sports, to send is to perform a run cleanly and flawlessly. For the high-octane snowboarder or skier, going full send is like grabbing the bull by its horns, launching confidently into a run even if it means crashing spectacularly. This expression is evidenced by at least 2015. @kianmalone23 Mute Full Send :: #N3R #sendit #snowboarding #shr3d pic.twitter.com/rZnZBy6ZHP — NORTHEASTRIDERS (@NortheastRiders) February 18, 2015 One skier, Colton Hardy, helped popularize full send through his social media (@jerryoftheday) in 2015.
