Sucks to hear though. I've been boarding about 5 years now, and last year caught an edge and landed hard on my shoulder, on the nice icy hills we have around here... nothing major, but it sure did hurt for a couple days. Other than that, I still fall all the time, mostly cause I'm messing around and having fun. Can't think of a better reason for an injury really.
I think you should hold on to your set up and try again. You said you got a solid 7-8 good runs. I think you're under the impression that you should be progressing much faster. For the second time out (considering how long it's been), I would say you're right where one would expect to be, progress wise. Freak accidents happen, you shouldn't let them be the determining factor.
