Been riding seven years and have never been hurt actually riding. I was screwing around at my friends house three years ago and rode my board down a little hill like a sled to get to the bottom really quick and my hand hit got caught on a weed. Pulled my ring finger so far back it split the knuckle in half. Seven years and I manage to get hurt just sliding down a hill. ........... I'm ok with that.

- Broken wrist
- bruised tailbone (landed really funny in a 1/4 pipe when I was way younger)
- fucked both shoulders multiple times
- bruised my chest on a mogul at Jay Peak last year
- elbowed myself in the ribs this year!
- landed goggles first once
- hit my buddy in the head, got a concussion and forgot how to talk properly (bought a helmet after that)
- thought I tore my ass open when I landed on it from about 10 feet up after I hit a lip funny

Back in my skiing days, before my balls dropped I fell on some corn snow and tore my face to shit. It never healed.

All this last season...

First day, last run..landed on my elbow and broke two ribs.
Broke a carpal bone in my wrist 3 weeks later
2nd degree tear of my MCL

I'm old and stupid though...at least that's what I blame it on.

Fractured tail bone.
Did something to my left shoulder to the point I couldn't really move it for 2 weeks. Never saw a doc tho
Sprained both wrists one week apart.
Strained abdomen muscle.
Jamed my knee coming up short on a jump to where it was sore for a week or two.
Misc lumps and bruises on the ass, hips, shins and what not.
That's about it. Nothing major mostly because I'm too scared to go big and risk fucking my self up.


I have a buddy with much worse luck. Been riding only two years and has had two concussions, fractured ribs, and sprained a wrist...

Nothing major?
If you fracture your tail bone, your fucked for a year if your lucky.

I don't mean no boarding for a year, were talking daily shots of morphine & not a wink of sleep for a few months.
By the time you are able to walk, you can't. Your muscles are so weak & you weigh more just from being motionless. You almost have to learn to walk again.
You can't even blink your eyes without excruciating pain, everything is connected to your ass.

Imo, burning to death would be about the only thing that would hurt more.
It is the worst injury & you never become 100% after.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Its not that bad, it's not like breaking your back or something. It's a useless bone at the end of your spinal cord. It just bruises and hurts. It hurts to sit in general for like 2 weeks then just hurts to sit back and relax in a chair and you cant really sleep on your back. I Just took advil every day and if it's a bad break they will give you a prescription pain killer at first. Recovery time is only 4-6 weeks but I kept too active and it took more like 3 months.
Breaking my hand in 3 places during high school football was worse because I actually splintered the bones. My hand was in a cast for 8 or 10 weeks for that

What to do for a Broken Tailbone
