get that shit repaired. I jumped the gun on my ankle. I managed to completely rip every single ligament (all 4) in my ankle. and I waited a little over a month before I started boarding. that was two years ago and my ankle still clicks and get kind of uncomfortable.

Also this past season I fractured my shin just below my knee doing a nose slide. (slipped off the rail because I was overleaning, fell right on the rail on my knee). I didnt seek any medical attention for it because I had just gotten a concussion and didnt feel like paying any more medical bills. it was the last week in my season and it wasnt impossible to walk. so I kept going every day for another week. another bad call, I was on crutches for 3 weeks after that.
