Post your injuries in the 09/10 season
-fell and flipped on a black diamond trail and elbowed myself in the ribs. Hard. Couldn't cough, laugh, or sit for a good 2 weeks.

-one of my wrist guard supports is curled out of the cloth, I fell and it poked me in the cheek. If it was 3 inches higher I prolly would have one eye.

-didn't pop off a ramp on this rail in time and my board got caught under the rail, landed on my hip, and my head whiplashed onto the rail. (The next day I bought a helmet)

buckle fractured my arm yesterday at stratton- last run, double black diamond. my boa boots were unlocked and i didnt know. next thing i knew, BAM- caught my edge!

i tried to snowplow down the mountain in pain, but i ended up going the wrong way and the next thing i knew i was on the side of the road, 5 miles from the base lodge. a shuttle was passing by and gave me a ride back.

my first cast and best of all the doc said i can still board with it!

fractured tailbone this year 50-50'ing a what i thought was simple rail.
kept riding, and on the next run i got lazy, caught an edge and fell on the same freaking part of my ass. called it quits for the day after that.

Any injury that deals with your tailbone just sucks. Really bad.
My worst was probably smashing my face on a box haha.

Ate it on a park jump Dec 1st and ended up with a 2nd degree AC seperation. I was out for all of December, and I still ride with a brace.

Only 1 so far. Trying a backside boardslide I caught my nose under the ledge and came down with my thigh directly on the edge of the ledge. Massive charlehorse. Worst part was that it was a 5ft long 1ft high ride on ledge. Couldn't walk right the next day and I don't bruise so it didn't look cool.

SO far so good on the injury chart. Just the normal minor bumps and bruises. I pray that it stays that way for the rest of the season. Especially since I just bought some new boots, and my new board should be here any time now. :D
