Took a gnarly slam today.
My park has a storm drain pipe to hip setup right now and my favorite trick to do on it was come it fast and gap to the end of the pipe and tail bonk it into the hip.
When I fell I came it with too much speed and thought it best to not hit the bonk in case of overshooting it into the woods. Bad idea.
The kicker for the feature sent me about 12-13 feet high going fast as hell and I came down on my back and put my arms down to stop my fall. I ended up breaking my left wrist and I'm done riding for the year. I just ordered a new board too. I'm pretty pissed right now lol. Wish it was on video.

Yeah at least you've got most of this season behind you and an entire off season to heal up. Could always be worse right?

I looked at that as the bright side. Only about a week left in this season anyway. Just a forearm cast for me, I will be good in about just under 2 months and than I could start skateboarding again. Bummed I wont be okay in time for my birthday to skate.
