Thank your lucky stars you don't have boobs. You haven't really experienced true pain until you landed on that fucker.
Great. Now I've got to search through your past posts to see if I can find pics of said "boobs"...
So I was at a house party Saturday night, and we were all talking about injuries, and we pretty much decided that kidney stones are right up there. I had one a couple years ago. Who knew something the size of two grains of sand could hurt so much?!?
Going into the park dead tired at the end of the day didn't help.
Yeah exactly! Last run of the day is not the day to work on something new. If I had just done a grab I would've been fine.
Donutz, I think I basically landed ribs first into a fairly hardpacked landing. It was right on the armour pieces but this was more of a blunt force slam than a sharp poke. Actually I took an elbow to the ribs (my own elbow!) last season at Kimberley while wearing the armour. It hurt like hell but I was able to continue boarding for the rest of the trip. I think without it would have been worse!
Also I've had some elbow hits and slid down some rocks since buying the armour, got back up with narry a scratch and rode on. But it still won't protect me from everything!
Last friday i fell on my left deltoid during a flat 180 switching regular to goofy while practicing carves on an intermediate blue. My shoulders were pushed back towards my lower neck and it hurts to raise my left arm or put a shirt on. It's feeling better today.
No kidding! Approximately the same week as Poutanen slammed (middle of March) I caught an edge in whiteout and landed with ribs on my right elbow. Very sore in the front of my ribcage, and intense pain in the right side of my back. Rolling over in bed was pure torment.
Didn't see a doctor because I knew they can't do much about it. And slowly I've been healing up. But now, three months later, it's getting worse again. It hurts in the back of my ribcage when I'm lying down, the rib hurts when I'm twisting my torso...
