lol.....just hear me out...

has anyone ever fallen and heard their whole skeleton crack?....including
the neck?......

I don't enjoy falling,.....but on a couple occasions, I have and have gotten up and went...."oh...wow....(wiggle body/ circles with head/side to side) that actually felt good"......hmm....and whistled down the slope...:giggle:

anyone else experience this liberating phenomenon?....

Yep, but nope. I caught an edge my 3rd time ever riding and slammed hard on my hip. It caused my back to crack all the way up to my skull. My left hip and leg felt paralysed. I couldn't move for like 5 minutes. Did not feel good man. :icon_scratch:

I've had that happen when my neck was twisted sideways. Felt similar to a chiropractic neck adjustment.
The reason you may feel better is if you had subluxations that were corrected by the fall. (vertebrae that are out of position putting pressure on spinal nerves)

Yeah, I'm gonna have to go with nope! Maybe because I already have some lower back issues, but I can't say the aftermath of any fall I've had felt good. There have been more than a few that were funny as hell! Where I've spent a few minutes on my face or ass, laughing, or trying to, after having had the wind knocked out of me. But they still hurt!

The one and only "good" feeling I get out of falling is, if it happened because I was trying something new, or pushing myself to go faster or ride harder terrain,.. I take some solice in remembering the often quoted philosophy one hears here. The one that says, "if you aren't falling? You aren't progressing!"

(....End of last season, I was progressing myself half to death!) ;)

Yeah I've had that happen. But not while snowboarding, I was wakeboarding and was doing a trick wake to wake landed wrong and smacked the water. Every single joint in my body popped. I laid there thinking I broke something for sure but got back in the boat and felt like a million bucks.

Would prefer not to crash again and just be out of alignment. Lol

Had to pull my leg everytime I got in or out of the car for a few days. So, I was the laughing stock for awhile. Walking was fine though. After a week or so I was golden.

I got my first turns yesterday, and I'm pretty sure falling didn't feel good. :D

that's what I call the butt......:laugh:
Umm... Sore, but my whole body is a little. It was an interesting day, going from a 164w full camber K2 from '07 to my SL. Kinda kicked my ass for a few hours.

I think the only "good" feel I got from falling was the endorphins kicking in after a particularly bad ass smash where I was in excruciating pain immedately and for hours. No bones broken, finished the run and drove home but I had that adrenaline high feeling for hours after and though still in pain I was so amped up and I remember my arms feeling like they needed to move and my teeth felt on edge. It was weird-I smoked so many cigarettes on the way home and everyone felt like the first... so good. It was an awful feeling being so like on edge and it lasted so long.

it's scary when you hear shit snappin', crackin' and poppin'.....s'pecially
at our age.......
I deff don't like fallin' ...but once n' awhile alittle "chirospill" is nice....
only thing is they're never predictable........it's always by chance.
