Sucks to hear though. I've been boarding about 5 years now, and last year caught an edge and landed hard on my shoulder, on the nice icy hills we have around here... nothing major, but it sure did hurt for a couple days. Other than that, I still fall all the time, mostly cause I'm messing around and having fun. Can't think of a better reason for an injury really.

I think you should hold on to your set up and try again. You said you got a solid 7-8 good runs. I think you're under the impression that you should be progressing much faster. For the second time out (considering how long it's been), I would say you're right where one would expect to be, progress wise. Freak accidents happen, you shouldn't let them be the determining factor.

My shoulder is trashed from snowboarding and I still ride. Don't give up...

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Snowboarding is a physical sport, injuries are part of the inherent risks we take. If im not falling im not happy cuz I know it means im just cruising & not pushing myself hard enough. A board with slightly detuned edges helps eliminate edges catching. I also notice I catch an edge most of the time at the end of the day as I begin to get tired.

LOL, yes you're right...

I dunno, I hate giving up but I think sometimes you just have to be man enough to admit you're whupped... skiing seems natural to me, boarding doesn't. I sure love the comfy boots and how cool and fun it looks watching someone who knows how to do it, but I don't think I'm ever gonna be that guy.

I wonder if I would've been better off staying with the shorter board, despite all the comments here that I was crazy for being on a board that short.

Ah well, take the bull by the horns sometimes you get gored!

Can't wait to get into my physical terror, um, therapy here in a few weeks.

Keep it up, us older geezers don't like to fall as hard, but as time goes on you fall much less and learn to fall easier. I didn't pick up the sport til 44 and had nevered skied, skated or surfed and last year, seventh season, rode 25 days with a left frozen shoulder syndrome that at times had me in tears....so most skiers use their shoulders for poles....but you are a lucky snowboarder with a tweeked shoulder and don't need to use them damn ski poles...I mean how much stuff do you need to get down the hill...2 planks and 2 poles. Also as a skier, you can already read terrain, snow, edging and stuff so you are almost there. Anyway keep it up and you will hit the magical day or pow day and it will come together. I would suggest finding someone that can instruct you on the body mechanics and board dynamics...once I figured out the body mechanics of closed shoulders, tilted pelvis, bent knees, keeping body parts in the box, alignment and learning to look over the leading shoulder the riding really came together.

How long have you been riding? Are you having fun? My suggestion is that things take time, so put in the time and stop being a little puss or take up something a little less physical.
