    Default OFFICIAL Injury thread

    Had to take the week off, last Friday fell off the hubba at my skatepark and sliced my leg open on the end of it, like jammed my shin down onto it. It was metal. Stitched up leg and not allowed to skate. Well I guess I could've but it wasn't worth risking re-opening it so I took a break. Finally get them off tomorrow, can't wait to be back haha. Haven't been on here much the past week because this site would just be a tease and make me wanna go out and skate .

    Anyone have any injuries they wanna share?

    Bombing down a hill and hit a wet sandbar at 20-25Km/hr. Thought I'd simply ride through it at speed. I was wrong. My board hit the sand and stopped dead, catapulting me onto the pavement.



    The result:

    Worst injury I have had is getting road rash on my elbow which already had roadrash on it. Hurt a lot but not as bad as Tony.

    Parker hasn't had too many yet. The worst was when he decided to skate without his pads. He wiped out hard, and fell on his tailbone and then his elbows. Both elbows bled, and it hurt to walk for a little while. Luckily, I carry band-aids in the car, so I had to clean his elbows up. About 10 min later, he was back to skating...........with his pads! lol

    The other day he tried to do a small drop in ramp, and wiped out twice. The second wipe-out he fell really hard, hurting his fingers and knee. His knee was scraped up, and he couldn't move his fingers for about 10 min. He didn't even cry, but gave up on that ramp. Said he'd he'd try it another day.

    Oh yeah, he got a really big bruise on the back of his leg from this, from landing on the board. Not sure how, but he didn't even scrape his knee from it.



    Since he doesn't really do much hard stuff yet, he hasn't had any major injuries, thank god! haha

    I am sitting here with a heating pad over my finally healing knee strains and effusion. It is a re-injury of a knee injury that occurred a few weeks ago, and so far my worst skateboarding injury yet.

    The first injury was falling off the back of the board on a simple rolling ollie, rolling my ankle and hearing a "pop" in the back of my knee. The re-injury was trying to ride off of the side of a small ramp (I have a ton of trouble riding off of anything that is >8" and not perfectly horizontal. Blah.) and falling.

    Today was my first day skating in 5 days.
