I basically try to have my whole body land on the ground at once. Think about it whatever hits first takes the most impact...

I think dirtbiking has probably helped me avoid hand/arm injuries, I'm so used to the compact and roll that I never try to throw the arms out when I fall on a snowboard. Go fall off a motorcycle!

I have no snowboarding experience but in all martial art sports they teach you to fall forwardand try to land on the side with a heavy slap before you land to maximize the area of impact.

on your back you want to take the fall on butt and shoulders hiding the head tucking the chin into your chest... spreading your arms out and slaming the floor with palms down... its known out there and the funny thing i remember from training is that we would spend 20 min every practice falling soy ou stand and fall stand and fall... looked retarded but it registered in the head.

Good plan, falling in pow is like falling into a foam pit, with some cartwheels thrown in

hahaha its not always pow, I broke a rib last season when I caught an edge. I had my hand in fist and it got caught between me and the snow/ice so I basically punched myself in the ribs.

Ouch. I hear broken ribs are super painful.
Does anyone hear wear wristguards? I bought a pair the middle of last season they're under my gloaves so no one sees them. Those with the helmet combo and I almost felt invincible. Was charging just about anything after that

Yeah, it sucked, but didn't hurt at all until the next morning. I have definitely had worse pain though. I never went to the doctor for it either, I figured since I could breathe okay there's nothing they can do.
Yeah I plan on wearing wrist guards this season because I had a few close calls last season and one of my friend actually broke his wrist ending his season. I bought the Flexmeter guards and they fit right in my gloves, so you can't even tell I'm wearing them.

Exactly. Or behind you. I had 10 years of experience and no real injuries but fell backwards while going fast a couple of seasons ago and put my hand out and broke my wrist. In a split second you don't always react the way you should even with a lot of experience. Now I wear wrist guards as I should have done when I broke my wrist.
