Both shins banged on the steel and cut deep! I did the opposite at Timberline on a large rainbow where I leaned a little back and ass slammed it before toppling over backwards from 4 feet up!
Oh yea, I got matching scars on the front of my shins. Battle scars for sure!

It was only superficial. I self medicated (vodka), let it dry and cut the remainding skin off. Its looking fairly ok now, i dont think i was going to get work as a hand model anyway. Have had a few mates lose the tips of there fingers, the hardest part is coming up with excuses as to why it happened, most use "you know the don't feed the monkey signs at the zoo, well....".

Hey, talking kiwi slang, do they use the word box where you are, to describe "box"?

hear hear!

last season, i ended off on a good note with boxes. i was able to throw down some bs boards... when this season started, i thought i'd pick up wear i left off... ate a lot of shit and now i'm afraid to do anything other than 50/50's lol.

when you bail on a big jump, if you carry enough speed, all you do is slide down the landing. when you bail on a box... ur body just stops. like they say, it's not the fall that kills you, its the sudden stop at the bottom :P.. when you bail on rails/boxes there are a lot of sudden stops.

I'm still a total noob in the park. But I have a feeling I'm going to end up like this kid when I actually try some presses

I got lazy on a nice easy wide box yesterday and stiffed legged it. Rolled a few times across the box and ended up coming to a stop still on top of the box face down. That was a bit embarrassing trying to crawl off that thing.

I am thankful that I am damn near 40 and none of my friends care to hit any park features other than Jumps/kickers. I missed a rail 10 years ago and landed on my face/collarbone/ribs, and I havent tried again. I don't need to miss work at this age.

Being 40 I can ditto this^

I'm jumping and hitting small boxes and don't think any rails will ever be in my future.

I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate boxes. I love box rails, but when the box is anything over 2 feet wide, it just seems like I should/can turn on it to initiate a spin on it, but end up slipping out, unable to bail to a side because of the width and that I can't easily fling my weight that far mid fall.

Any tips on how to spin on these? I can do the presses and boardslides and stuff, but I always see the 8 year old skiiers 720 spinning the length of it.

This is me as well, but I am armoring up. Actually considering back protector for my spins, which seem to be on hold till next season.
