dkzach Hey that was pretty clean... lol but in reality I was going to land on his head so I had to completely shift left then slow so I didn't hit him. I'm being "careful" remember. Stupid friend... being lame and not knowing how to jump properly

IdahoFreshies do whatever the doctor says. trust me, if he says to wait 4 weeks to board, just do it. I know you are just kicking the season off and want to ride, but if you risk it and get hurt again and need to go through the whole thing again, maybe worse, you will be wishing you had just stayed home. If you go out and ride and get hurt again instead of only being held up for 4 weeks, it might end up being 8 weeks, or the whole season. Not really worth it imo, considering how expensive dr and specialist visits are.

oh, didnt see this was from the 20th....oh well. good job for you. i wouldnt risk it again

Everything works right now but seriously don't risk it, I was in a cast for a long time after that. Orthopedic doc wasn't too happy about it either but he's a snowboarder and understands.

Yeah **** *** of the day first day of the season
By the way I'm guessing you said the 2 worst words a snowboarder can speak before that crash. Never, ever say that.

AcroPhile That diagram of the jump is pretty sweet. One day, I'm going to draw something that good.

BigmountainVMD Shitty dude. Get that cast protector and stay out of the damn park and off the slopes on icy days. If you stick to riding in good conditions and can hold yourself back from tricking over every broken twig out of sheer boredom, you should be fine.

JUST STAY OUT OF THE PARK. You know in a few weeks, right before you get the cast off, you will think it feels fine and will want to try something. Just hold back.

bsrkoacar Ask your doctor for a big Styrofoam brace thing that goes over your cast, it looks like this except they make them to cover your fingers too.... Welcome | THE CAST PROTECTOR I played football in high school and everyone would play with broken wrists/arms.

oneshot I'd rest up. 3 weeks at least.. its early in the season.

snafs I have had 2 buckle fractures. Not so bad they heal fast so you will be healed up pretty quickly especially if you are young. Like everyone else if you can try not to snowboard. I skated when i had one of mine and fell on it and gave myself another 3 weeks in the cast.

But if you do go take it easy, stay out of the park (or at least take it easy in the park) and put a trash bag on your arm. Wet casts can get really smelly and really gross.

Hope you heal up quick.

Edit: Also a good way to avoid injury on the last run of the day is to plan to take 3 more runs and then skip the last one.
