Craziest snowboarding injuries....?
I have heard everything from ripping your asshole open and shitting your pants to torn ACL's and broken bones...

What is your craziest snowboarding fall/ injury?

I fractured my leg after slipping out on a nose slide and having my leg right under my knee be the only point of contact as I fell. It was the first day of the last week of this past season. I went everyday that week..

another incident this season was be doing a bonk hit off the lip adjacent to a rail. The take off wasnt really sloppy, and it had a dip in the middlie, I caught air off the dip, hit the lip funny and came down head first, got a concussion. got up (I dont remember this) finished my run, pulled off a cab melon on a 15ft table, and a few other worthy hits. according to my friends it was my best run of the night, but I dont remember it

Skullplanting on ice off a jump and denting my helmet. Wouldn't be here right now if I didn't wear it...

And ofcourse the usual wrist sprain, knee sprain, tailbone fracture.

One time I collided with a skier and the end of his pole went into my hip. It was purple and green/blue for about 3 weeks.

I was turning heelside and I went over a buried ski poll handle first then down the pole and hit the plastic base and it stood up right into my hamstring and poll vaulted me down the slope. I had a huge bruise on my leg.Man was I pissed,if the stupid skiers can't keep all their crap with them they should no have it in the first place!!

Ahhh broken collar bone....that sucks

I broke my right humerous bone trying to save my pre-existing chipped tailbone injury...basically I just put my arm behind my back (I KNOW, that was dumb) and tried to cushion the tailbone...didnt really work out lol, i just snapped my arm all the way back (I was falling onto my back). When I popped back up from the arm was swinging in all sorts of ways it wasn't supposed to go...pretty freaky.

Injuries are all part of the game though...

Thats a picture of my X ray right after it happened...

It sucked lol...I was out for the rest of the season, luckily I broke it March it wasn't TOOO bad. Sucked more for the upcoming surf season though...

Ohh that looks painful! One thing to read someone describe it, another to see the aftermath for yourself.

Where do you surf? I've been dying to learn but doesn't seem like there is any place near with waves.

The only real snowboarding injury I've ever had was two cracked ribs suffered at Vail. I caught an edge and came down in a weird way that shoved my elbow into my ribcage. I don't know how I didn't break my arm. That was the second time I've suffered broken ribs. The first was not snowboarding related. I wouldn't wish broken ribs on my worst enemy.

Torn rotator cuff and broken tail bone. Not fun at all, they still hurt at times. I should go back to PT but I have been putting it off for my shoulder.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 01:43 PM.
