And Damn! That sucks. Hate outta control idiots on the mountain, especially the ones with their arms flailing. Hope you didn't get hurt too bad. I woulda tore him a new asshole for the board...
We were on a long skate traversing to another lift. This dude came through, as you said, arms flailing, and slid right into me. I grabbed him immediately and threw him in the snow and continued skating. Had I seen the gouge earlier I woulda kicked him in the face as well! But then I took another a couple of months ago. Was going nice and slow taking video of my brother in law and BAM. Right on the tail. He was board kicked.

So...Carbonium is not indestructible, but would have been a lot worse with most other boards. I suppose I can live with it. Just pisses me right off. Id rather earn those chunks....
