Whats your worst injury?

Haha thought this would be a fun one for discussion. Last season I attempted my first wall ride...with little success. My thinking was that if I just commit to the trick and go full speed I won't have time to hesitate and back out...so stupid. The slope up to the wallride wasn't to great to begin with (early in the season and it was mad icy) so I couldn't get vertical enough and ended up falling into the wall with my shoulder, thus dislocating it horribly. To make matters worse, other riders continued to hit the jib while I was slumped at the bottom of it in pain; I ended up dragging myself out of the way with my good arm to avoid being landed on by the careless 16 year olds showing off to their girlfriends.

Me: Dislocated hip. I continued to ride with it dislocated for a week. When I was strapped in and riding I was fine. When I had to unstrap and ride the chair it was fucking horrible. I needed help from passerby's to strap in/unstrap. And when it was time to go home I had to sit sideways on the seat, swing in my good leg and use both hands to lift my other leg into the car. I finally got a chiropractor to put it back in place and found out he is a board sport enthusiast as well (wakeboarder). It is really easy to explain to him injuries I need help with just by telling him what I was trying. He has reset my jaw three times after dislocating, "unkinked" my neck after a nasty bail, etc.

i tore my rotator cuft like 5 or 6 years ago and rode with it the rest of the trip, then the year after that i broke my wrist on a rail...both begining of the season of course. then couple years back i was bombing a hill when i tried to cut through powder thus throwing the front of my board into the powder. short story even shorter my board hit me in the back of the head. (as you can imagine the human body isnt supposed to bend this way) i thought i broke my back so i just layed there and saw stars for a few minutes then i quit being a puss and got up and bounced. good times keep the stories coming people!

I got hit by some guy in Les Arcs from behind and broke both arms and my thumb. That sucked.

I remember last season crashing at about 45mph in some power, my toe edge suck and flung me headfirst to the floor. I reckon if it was hardpack I would have been in all sorts of trouble

From my two years experience, the worst I got so far was a tweaked thumb. I was pushing myself up on ice, my board moved and my thumb did an awkward motion. It hurt the whole winter but its fine now.
