Broken wrist requiring surgery, Bruised tailbone, couple sprained ankles (both from park falls and one time I had a really bad one where somebody cut into me from the side while I was just freeriding). One time I overshot a jump pretty badly(as in a missed the entire landing badly), my foot was bruised pretty bad for about a week and I had a sprained ankle but I was very lucky I didn't get a break.

Seperated shoulder and the vertibrae that connect to my pelvis are rotated so my hips are always off allihgnment with my torso. Both from landing badly on ice from drops.

i have a nice "quasimodo" gargoyle hump since my bones never healed in the shoulder socket ... always fun to show people

also broke my right orbital (aka the temple) when i randomly decided to go top gun status and do a flyby of teh landing pad.

Broke a few ribs.. a couple times.
-1 time was just a slam on a cat track when I was learning, caught a edge,
-other time was from overshooting a jump, I was lucky that's all that happened, the video was almost hard to watch.

Broke my nose (And googles) once
- landed on my face off a medium sized kicker.

Other than that just bumps and bruises and a few days of being sore, nothing serious

I feel like I get injured the most when I'm not confident approaching a feature or whatever. I always go slow when I'm not feeling it, and that gets me in trouble for sure.

A couple concussions, dislocated left shoulder a handful of times, hairline stress fracture in my shin bone (although snowboarding was probably just one of many causes of this one as I was also playing soccer and training for marathons which contributed to the stress fracture), sliced open my back when I fell on a tree run onto an exposed broken off branch that ripped a hole in my jacket and base layer cutting a deep gouge just below my right shoulder blade, countless bruises, tons of sprains.

The funny thing is my MCL injury was on a Big Air Bag. Of all things. Jeez, so dumb.
