Crushed finger
I 360ed a jump yesterday, and I landed a little too far back on my heel edge, and I made the DUMB mistake of putting my hands out behind me, and I landed on my index finger.

At first it didn't hurt too bad, but halfway up the t-bar, I nearly puked because of a shot of pain going through it.

It eventually got really swollen and stiff. Ski patrol gave me some ice, and I left for the day. It is still swollen and stiff, but doesn't hurt really unless I bend it. Moral of the story, watch where you put your fingers...:(

landed on like your finger got under your board?

Don't think his finger got under his board, that would be quite difficult...

Maybe you should get some X-rays of your finger, just to be sure? Fingers break quite easily, my thumb broke on time, with something going way less faster than a landing!

No I didn't land by board on it; my ass pretty much crushed it. I can bend it, obviously not as much as all my other fingers, but I can. The pain went away after about 2 hours, and I can type haha. Could it still be broken? It doesn't feel it.

finger/toe injuries are always a bitch. i once crushed my toe skateboarding and i didnt think i broke it, a week or so later it still hurt too much to walk on so i got an x ray and sure enough it had broken in 2 places! i didnt even know a toe was big enough to break twice. anwyay i was out for a month of that season

For the most part if you break your fingers or toes, you usually know because you cant bend them or walk on them. If the pain goes away when you move it or its just dull it could be fractured.

My gf made me a little homeade splint for it, and I've been using that alot. I think I'll just take it easy on that finger, it doesn't feel broken or fractured. Sucks I've overshot huge jumps and nearly shattered my heel and tailbone, and now the simplest fall did this to me. Snowboarding can be a bitch sometimes. And yet I still keep doing it...:dunno: haha

You're good, at least you still have them all haha. Go see a Doc and get that taken care of, it could be broken even if you can move it.
