I've several day enders...not coincidentally all of them have been at the end of the the day when I was probably too tired to still be riding. Never have I thought about giving up riding.

i love snowboarding like the rest of us here, it's pretty much the basis of my lifestyle. i've always been one to tell my friends and family that if i do die snowboarding, no matter how horrific or brutal the death may be, just have trust in me that i died doing something i love. no regrets. if i were to take a serious injury i dont think there would be much to stop me getting back on a board or even sit-ski if i have to, even if it has to come to just cruising groomers at low speeds.

Im still young but ive taken my fair share of falls! Last year I broke my scaphoid after arguing with my mom about not wearing wrist splints as I heard they acted as a lever and break your arm at even the smallest fall. So I was out for the season and came back stronger than ever. Im a very experienced park rider doing it since I was 8 (im 16 now), I was participating in a transworld contest(transam) and feel wrong off a double board slide to tail slide 270 out and felt my arm go limp. In denial I stood up rode down and said please please please tell me its not broken. I could obviouslyfeel it was broken and see the deformity it was nasty. So we rode to the hospital as I was in the worst pain in my life.they took x-rays wich were sooo painful. My mom came over to me and said remember how u didnt want to wear wrist guards? Well you broke your arm and wrist.... I ended up breaking the radius and ulna towards the hand. Broke the one in 2 places. They put me under anastesha and placed the bones back. After a night of close monitoring the doctor decided I dont need surgery as of yet. Got a full arm cast, x rays weekly( its been 5 weeks now) so far no surgery. Suposivly im getting a short arm cast next week! Then 2 weeks after ill be good. These 2 big injuries plus allof the other head banging scorpions ive had! Banging offrails my tailbone being destroyed and never have I forgot about quiting but what do I know im a kid no kids,lol,no job so I dont aqueate to all of your circumstances, best of luck to evreyone!

Such a love for boarding, cannot think of any reason to give up.
Busted my arm in a border cross.
Both bones in left with surgery and plates to fix.
Within a week I just could not take it anymore.
Back on the slopes.
I would hold my cast covered arm up in the air to lessen the throbbing.
My friends all started holding a arm up in the air every time we would get in the lift line.
Made me laugh so hard the first time they did it.
20 plus people at the bottom of lift with a arm in the air so I would not feel awkward.

Been down hard on my motorcycles also.
Hit a deer at 85 plus mph.
Made it home on 3 of 4 cylinders as the deer folded then whipped around the right side of bike taking out faring, spark plug, and leg.
Dropped the bike in the driveway and crawled in the house.
Nothing broken but could not walk for a month.
Another thing I would never give up.

Some people may think I am a idiot for continuing.
They are just too scared to really live.
They are the same people who will blog on the net that life sucks and never find any self satisfaction and lasting happiness.
You know, the whiners who get knocked off the old friends list as you just get sick of all the self pity.
To live you must be willing to live.

My family and friends know also.
Though they make me laugh so hard it hurts.
They know when I am happiest.
And when I am most Content.
