Default My frist wreck

my friend talked me into going snowboarding last year. I always wanted to but never went. He didnt tell me a thing about how to snowboard. He just said stay to the left (small resort [if you could even call it that). Well i get up after a few not so bad trys. I go about 20 feet and fall. I do this about two more times. I get back up after that and ive got it. I was going down the hill like a pro. I was passing everyone. then i saw a light pole in front of me. I didnt know how to turn. The hole time i was going off to the right but i couldnt help it. I was going way to fast. I hit a large section of ice. I wanted to turn so i started to mess around on the board. I had no clue what to do. I ended up with my toe edge to the top oe the hill. Thats when i cought my heel edge. I landed on my head at a very fast speed. I landed on ice. I woke up with the medics over me.

That was the frist time i went down the hill. That night was -2 outside with a wind chill that made it -10

Classic! Edge catch, whiplash, coconut smash. Get yourself a helmet, and sign yourself up for an intermediate lesson. It'll tighten up your riding, torsion instead of ruddering etc

I second the helmet and the lesson. Get a private beginner lesson though.

I third the beginner lesson. Definitely a Begineer lesson. Judging from your riding description an intermediate lesson is a little bit beyond your current skill set.

Hahahahha! That's exactly how MY first riding experience went, at Holiday Valley near buffalo. Shitty terrain, very cold, no control, heelside catch, WHACKED head. Not knocked out - I must have less brainmeat than you. And yes, now I ALWAYS wear a helmet.

I wear a helmet. I've never whacked it on the slope, but I've come pretty darn close after riding over some invisible patches of ice. No time to do anything except fall and smack into the earth.

Ha, I am sure almost every rider has experienced that at least once in their career.

That was my first injury. Was going down spun around and caught the heelside and whacked my head wicked hard which gave me a concussion. Otherwise I only destroyed my tailbone on some ice, which hurt for a little over two weeks. So i feel your pain man.
