I would say craziest cause I've seen worst, but for me last year I bruised my left side of my rib cage pretty bad doing a toe steep turn. The following week I did the same but this time on my right side. Towards the end of the season I badly sprained my thumb and know I can barely bend it, without this snap crackle pop sound.

They say that sometimes a bad sprain can actually be worse then a break. From the sound of your story though your lucky you didnt break it

Not sure what to classify it as since I still have no idea what it was that got hurt. Was going down hill fullspeed initiating a carve from a series of them and my foot magically somehow came out of my front binding and gave me a split second to realize I was facked to slam chest first into the hard packed snow. Turns out I also put my cable lock in a chest pocket that so happened to be the spot that hit first.

No idea what got hurt but it was internal. I couldn't hop, jump, jog, run or move too quick without throbbing pain that felt like someone was hanging on my nerve lines everytime I did so. Took me out of commission for a few months.

I've never been too seriously injured. Broke my wrist riding when I was 13, slipped out on some ice and broke my fall with my hand, never did that again. I've gotten a few big bruises from falling off of handrails but no breaks or anything. The most uncomfortable injury was a dislocated arm that happened while fucking up on a 540 off of a 40ft booter. It required a lot of massage therapy to get the scar tissue out and re align the shoulder.

My right arm is way weaker then the left because all my snowboarding injuries have been on the right!

was riding witha buddy and we hit the park, saw a box i decided i would hit without scoping it out first, hit it way to fast and off balance, slipped off the side fell 6 feet face first onto a patch of ice. Goggles cut into my face giving me a clean goggle shaped cut around my right eye, bloody nose and 2 cracked front teeth.
the teeth only got worse from there but thats a long story and im too lazy to type it, basicaly though you do not want to get an abcess(sp?) in your teeth/gums, hurts like a motherfucker.
anyhow took 10grand in dental work to fix the teeth, thank god for insurance

Thats usually what happens! Me and my crew always try to make a conscience effort to make a dry run through the park before actually hitting the stuff in there first.

Broken teeth is one thing I am absolutely petrified of! I cracked my front tooth my first season (also broke my arm my first season..and got some concussions, and bruises I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, but hey go hard or go home right). The cold/hot sensitivity is the worst on that tooth! Sends chills down my spine.
