First season snowboarding around march, i was starting to get confident hitting some average sized tabletops and one time i got a little too confident and wasnt really paying attention, i hit it going too fast. I ended up going backwards through the air, cleared the landing and broke my wrist.

Second season (last season) i had become better and hitting bigger jumps. I went for this 30 footer and caught my heel edge going up the lip. I ended up doing the same thing, flying through the air. backwards. and i landed on my same arm. Except this time i broke my humerus right below my shoulder.

I had to have a doctor put a rod and two screws in. :/
He said if i hit my tea with this type of impact, i would've died so i bought a sandbox. haha
It still give me pain today, 7 months later but I'm doin physical therapy next month and I'll be at Mt High come winter!
