Eh I'm a fan of over shooting vs knuckling. I can 9 out of 10 times ride out an over shoot, but with a knuckle that's a day ender for me.

Hope you recover fully and take it slow. Could have been so much worse.

Park is overrated anyway. If you don't hit the park you eliminate a huge amount of the injury risk.

I may do a few runs if conditions are good, but always take it slow and easy on the first run.

I prefer pow landings of natural hits, sure this also has some risk but if you scope out the landing area well its like having a foam pit.

Heal up soon. Park Jumps have always scared me.
A little something to brighten you day is on its way.

Yeah,.. Like we're the kinds of "douche nozzle" friends that would do that????


We appreciate you worrying about "Our" day while you're on the ground in agony! Dude, just gotta accept that some things are more important than the "Ride!!" (...Like making sure you are all right and will be able to ride again, cuz there's nothing more important than the ride,.. Right?)

I'll second that post and say,.. Here's to 2013/14!!! You'll be waiting on me in the lift again fer shur!!!

Although we may not agree on some things, I feel for you man. I also haven't ridden for a while due to injury but a broken back sounds really painful and scary. Luckily it wasn't the worst case for your back though, I wish you a full recovery

Bummer, sorry to hear. I have a constant fear of overshooting jumps and usually knuckle. Something tells me knowing your story is not going to help my progression in jumping. Take it easy and get well soon!

The irony is that we had initially planned to go over to Cannonsburg for the US Airbag demo tour. But given the shitty weather, and the fact that Leo hadn't got his permission slip signed, we opted to stay local instead of driving 2+ hours, paying extra money for the bag pass + lift pass, etc., just to stand in line with 100 kids to hit one kicker a few times.

Get better soon man. Maybe you can squeeze in a day or two in April if Boyne is still open. Stick to the groomers and do all your rehab and PT.
