One was from my background in boxing, one BMXing and the other i did get snowboarding but when i was very new to the sport. i know exactly what i'm doing to my brain, but there's no point in living life if you're going to spend it cooped up inside worrying about what could happen if you have a little fun every now n then. i'd rather die having fun than live a life of boredom and repetition.

and to the other person, yes my name is very fitting hah. the term breakneck speed comes to mind...

As long as you are in control and aren't hurting anyone else go as fast as you can. I know I do.

I also agree with you. I think I got a concussion my second day learning to snowboard. Haven't really hit my head hard since. *knocks on wood*

I still don't remember a several hour timeframe from when I got knocked out cold while riding. Never will
