I broke my ankle years ago and was so sad I could not snowboard. I could not wait to ride again. I have had some other nasty falls where I got concussions. Those falls scared the crap out of me. I thought I was going to die a couple of years ago because I cartwheeled down a double black at Breckenridge. I was so lucky, but I had a concussion. I actually closed my eyes because i did not think I was going to stop cartwheeling. I did not ride for a week after that because my neck and back were very sore. I took a week off this season to due to a scary fall.

I don't think about quitting, but my cocky 3rd season gnar dissipated. I became more cautious and slower.
