Yeah i read that post a few down about breaking boards. This is my first decent board too (K2 Parkstar) so dont really want to break it
Landing on my head also sounds not very fun. In the vids it looked more like he was crouched over (and hence would just land/roll off the back if he fell), but hearing that makes me think I might just skip them. Having said that, i am going to Hokkaido this weekend, and supposedly they are having massive snow dumps at the moment...
