Default

badly bruised knee (two different occasions)
Some sort of shoulder injury (I'm currently having physio for but I think it originated on my first trip)
fractured rib (just healed)
some sort of minor fracture in/behind the pinky knuckle on both hands (current)
bruised/fractured coccyx (current - makes getting into/out of my car a bit tricky)

nothing major but not a bad collection for only 3 trips. And all while wearing impact protection. Just wear and tear I guess when you decide to learn to ride in the second half of your 30's The rib ended my day but got though rest of the week with painkillers more or less ok.

Snowboarding endorphins > fear every time
