Default What do you think happended?

i was at my local mountain today, i live in NY we had about 6 inches of power dumped overnight,so i went for some nice powder riding. after awhile i went to the terrain park. I was the first one their. the usual kicker i hit is a 15 or so footer. but because of the powder is was a little less then that. I am not a pro at snowboarding.I can do the jumps fine. i can even throw 180s and such. but i hit the jump and got a lot more air then i expected. landed fine but took a lot of impact to my knees. but today my back hurts. i was snowboarding for around 12 hours yesterday. my back is never sore after a long day of riding. but today it hurts to move. Mind you i am kind of chubby, sitting at around 160, and i am about 5'8. So i am not the skinniest person on the mountain. i just don't know what happened that would make my back hurt today.

Oh, btw i am new here. My names Chris and i am 15.i am from NY.

The impact could have easily put a lot of stress on and possibly compressed your vertebrate, which would leave you with a sore back.

160 and 5'8" is chubby? Yikes. You just need to lift a couple weights and tone up.

If your knees didn't bend do to your surprise on the immediate change of situation IE: big height, you could have jared a vertibrae like described. Even though there was fresh powder 6" isn't much and if base was icy that would not help to absorb your impact.
This happened to me this year but not as bad. I could tell right away, I knew I didn't absorb with my knees and I felt the jolt through my back. I stopped jumping that day.

I completely cleared a landing of a large angle jump on skis over 20 years ago, ever since then my back hurt now and again when I'm not active and go do something active. Now it's to the point that when I bend down and do something like vacuum the floor or wash the car, I have to arch my back bend at the hips THEN straighten my back like I'm 80. I compressed my spine and have arthritis in my lower back because of this.

Landing without knee flex causes this. Doubt your issue is going to be as bad but as one other said, 160 at your age and height is way too much weight on your frame, if you lose some you will find it easier to get around if you did damage your back, and less easier to damage your back if you haven't already..

There you go dude. 12 hours on board, something slightly bigger than your used to, and being slightly out of shape. I realise you say that you took most of the weight on your knees...do you think it could have jarred your back?

I have to ask - how many days have you done this season?

Dont worry to much about people hitting you up about your weight on here. I'm 190lbs and 5'5".
