Wow, I am so sorry to hear about your accident! But at least you dodged a (huge) bullet there. I hope your recovery fast and as comfortable as it can be!

I've never tried jumps (yes yes, I am noob), but this may have just put me off them for life.

Holy shit! Bummer for the season but glad you'll be able to ride again one day!!!

This thread makes me think I made the right decision yesterday. Lake Louise finally has their park setup and my buddy hit the first kicker a few times (probably about 10-15 feet as well). I was tempted but didn't feel right so I just played on the kiddie jumps that have no kicker...

Speedy recovery! Enjoy the drugs! lol

Glad to hear you're all right, cause ya, you are lucky.

I shattered my tailbone & cracked a heel bone on an over shoot. When I came out of nappy time, there were all these people everywhere. I didn't really know what happened, but I seemed to be a hit, everybody wanted to talk to me.

Rehab sucks, as you might know. This ones even shittier, push yourself harder than you have for anything else, ever.
Also very gratifying when you make it back
If it doesn't kill you, it'll only make you stronger.

You'll be 100% again, maybe not by next season, but @ least enough to get out there next season.

It's tough & slow, be determined.
The pow is only sweeter, from here on in.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

To be fair to Sam, there was no way he was going to get that board back down any. He slipped and slipped hard. Board was more than 90 degrees up in front of him and the jump was only a 10 footer so he wouldn't have had enough time even if he tried. It was doomed from the start.

I honestly was about to laugh at him because I was getting ready to hit the same jump until I saw him. I rode past the kicker and saw/heard that this was no longer a laughing matter.

Crazy thing is, I was more scared than him initially. Dude is so damn stubborn. I was yelling at him to quit fucking moving. Neck/back injuries necessitate you stay put or you risk further injury.

Anyway, I'm glad you're already discharged Sam. Like I said, don't be bummed about the kicker thing. None of us have to hit the park up and no, you won't be killing our stoke. 99.9% of the stoke comes from riding with you guys alone. The other .01% comes from the fact that I'm even able to be out there riding at all haha.

Also, in terms of speed checking, I was more referring to speed checking the first few attempts so you get to know the jump. Then you can just do your drop zone thing.

I do what Snowolf said though. I like to speed check at the top rather than change my drop zone. But right now, I still have a mental hurdle that's making me speed check too much.

It's funny that *this* is the run I have moments after you and I are debating the damn speed checks. Anything to win an argument hey Leo?

Lol.

If we were hitting the jumps that BA hits, I wouldn't have debated you. When you're talking about those kinds of distances, you definitely want to stay super clear of the knuckle. Besides, on those you have much more transition and air time to help you out. On 10footers, knuckles won't do much unless you're landing on your head.
