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?

I would have killed to play tight end, only issue is my team didn't use them. At all. Always a five wide set or a four wide with a back. So that destroyed my dreams haha.

My suggestion would be to #1 head to the board section and ask about a board choice there. Those guys give excellent advice and they tend to shun Burton for cheaper boards that will complement your riding style better.

And as someone who just got a helmet with speakers I have to say its really made hitting the mountain much more enjoyable. Especially the cold rides up the mountain with nothing to do but fght the temptation to take your phone out and risk dropping it.

I always wore a helmet and always will, I don't care what people say about what looks better, I'd rather not be brain dead.
