Yeah its like broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder on steroids haha. But the snowboarding concussion happened the same year so did not have to worry much about using that anymore. Thanks for the advice though, I don't need any more nasty concussions to say the least. I'd say the cream of the crop came in a football game being kneed in the back of my head and going out cold for 2 minutes. Put me out the rest of the season but I guess a couple missed games of high school football will be better than being a veggie the rest of my life. Anyways it is good to be coming back and I think I am actually headed to the store on friday to get a board. Coming back as a beginner I guess I've been looking at a burton blunt. Any suggestions?
