Default My Comeback....Foiled!!!

I moved to CO from CA last year and decided to get back on mountain. I took a break in CA while the kids were babies. It was great being back on a board. I started going so much I decided to buy a new board after demo-ing a few. On my 8th trip, 2nd with my new board, I took a horrific tumble. The whole season I was getting better and better, hitting natural terrain jumps, this was no different. I was freakin slaying it!!! Then my buddy says let's video tape some of it...

I end up speed checking to much and end up cathcing toe edge on a slant, tumbling forward, feet over head, landing on my head and shoulder with my arm behind me. Had to take the stretcher down. Today I find out just from a preliminary review of my MRI, that I tore two sections of my rotator cuff, and that's just the prelim, the way it feels, I am sure there is more.

Anyway as I type here with one hand and the snow continues to pile here in CO I keep replaying the POSER move. If I had more speed I know I would have landed that jump or atleast cleared teh slant part of the hill. I also think I should have went with the size board I demo-ed 154, I ended up buying a 157 based on multiple recommendations. My board is for sale or trade, look for it on this sale-forum. Keep you posted on the final outcome. Enjoy the rest of the season, stay safe and remenber speed isn't always a bad thing.

That bites.

Stupid gravity.


Hopefully it's not more than just a season-ender.

The very first time i went after purchasing my own board (camber profile, learned on a rocker/flatish board)i fell and injured my rotator cuff on the first run of the day. I caught my toe edge and landed on my left shoulder with my arm outstretched. My arm had little feeling, but it didnt hurt unless i tried to move my arm using my own strength. Didnt want to waste 65$ so i rode the rest of the day, but the injury was just minor. Hope you heal as fast as i did, i was back out the next week (thanks to pain meds though haha).

Typing with one hand. Surgery was last night and went well. Three titanium screws to repair my rotator cuff. Doc said the ligament was almost completely torn. Thank you for the well wishes. Typing this is helping me take my mind off the pain and believe me I have had to hold back a tear or two. Taking my percocet on time every time. I gotta stay positive and keep moving forward.

I wish it was a sick kicker, it was a weak as terrain jump that I speed checked way too much for. I have nailed terrain jumps 100 times better, faster, higher, than the weak move that put me out for the season.

A quick pain update: F THIS, F THIS, F THIS! the pain sucks, barely got any sleep, feel like i hae been popping narcotics all night long. I should have asked the doctor for some MMJ. have slept may a total of 7 hours since surgery on Thursday night. and yes i am still typing with one hand. gotta keep smiling though!!! what else can I do?
