So freaking true. Was I pissed I ended my season, hell yeah. But we can move, we didn't end up like the poor kid from Massachusetts.

Even last year some guy got himself paralyzed from waist down at Highlands messing around in Funland. My guess same thing, came in hot and blew himself out landing flat or sumshit.

You want to learn jumps, cool. RELIGIOUSLY follow all the advice and tips. Get the speed right. It's one simple thing that makes the difference between a little bang or a day/season ender.

I didn't follow my own rules, I didn't watch where other people dropped in from to gauge the speed. Bad call.
