|boardingaddict||So,the real reason I am posting on this website is to get some insight on torn ACLs. I have a boat load of health issues. 2 years ago, diagnosed with 3rd stage cancer and put on chemo, rads and multiple surgeries. They put me on another chemo drug that supposedly eats away at your joints and such. I went to Mammoth last week, and I didn't appear to have that "EPIC" of a fall, but supposedly landed with my knees hyperextended (at least what I could remember). What is the outlook as far as getting back on the board? How is the rehab? Anyone have experiences with torn ACLs?|

Hi! I love to snowboard like you would not believe. I started off skiing for 22 years and made the switch to snowboarding. I have been boarding for the past 14 years and love it!

Middle age snowboard freestyle wannabe
I'm 37. I've been boarding for the last 7 or 8 years but have only really gotten out regularly the last 2 years. I like carving but I really wish I wasn't so creeky so I could master some of those tricks the younger crowd seem to master with ease. Anyways I've started working on 180's and indie grabs this year and am starting to ride a bit of switch.
Love boarding and hope to be doing it for many more years.
Oh and I have started making a backyard park for my sons (12 and 5) and I.
