Why you shoudn't carry your board bare hand
 
2 weeks ago we went boarding for the afternoon. Upon leaving, my GF went to the restroom (what a surprise...) and my 10 y.o. son and I started taking off helmets, gloves, etc, as it was very warm.

When in the parking lot, my son slip and fell on an ice patch. Bare hands. Carrying his board. GF went to get a patroller to take care of it, as it was a deep cut. Then they had to fill in a report. It was funny because "parking lot" doesn't figure in the "where the hell did it happen" choice list.

We then went and waited 4 hours (thanks "free" health system...) at the hospital for stitches.

Here's a picture after the cleaning, before the stitches:

Nice Battle wound! I hope he is a tuff little shredder and gets back out there!

Hey, at least your healthcare is "free". I would have stuck a paper towel on it to stop the bleeding and went about my business, at least you have that option :laugh:

I would have used some Super Glue, or barring that option, a napkin and some Duct Tape. But that's how you have to roll with no health insurance. ;)

He's already back at it. I told him to keep his glove to carry his board today. He didn't find me funny.

At least you had the option of going to the hospital. For lot of us uninsured folks living in the US this isn't an option. Four hour wait or not.

Superglue FTW, or new skin which is basically the same thing with antiseptic. Fixed some gnarly gashes with it. No health insurance stubborn prick blah blah blah lol. I always kinda wondered if the edge could do damage now i know.

I hate when Canadians bitch about free health care when in the US even if you have insurance like me it takes 5 hours and still cost me 200 bucks. Just be happy that your government gives it to you for free!
