Yeah, snowj720, I still take falls quite regularly.  Last season I was doing a 5-0 across a highbox on top of a pyramid and the ledge was waxed like crazy.  I leaned back too much going hellafast and right at the end of the grind the board slipped/shot out from under me.  I landed directly on my left hip at the bottom of the flat (maybe 6 feet down).  It was ugly.  I eventually went to the doc because it was black, purple and yellow around the edges of the huge bruise.. and because it hurt.  The doc said it was "sort of dislocated" and if it doesn't work itself back into place, I'd have to have surgery to make it work properly again.  I fought through it and rode (snowboard) all winter with really no problems.  Now I'm skating a lot as well (shrug).  It feels really strange when I rub my hand over the spot, but it works, so I'll take it Smile.

Yea, this reminds me why I have been so on and off with skateboarding over the years.  I remember a several years ago I was in a skatepark and dropped in on an 8 foot roll in.  The park isn't always "maintained" or cleaned when it should be, so one of my wheels ended up getting caught on some debris toward the bottom.  Ended up falling off and smacked my hip into the support of a rail.  Sucked so much.  Another time I did a revert on a ramp and was just not paying attention, so next thing i know i turned around crashed head-on into some dude on a bike just dropping in to go up the ramp.  Neither of us were paying attention and we both took our time walking it off.  Was a pretty big dude too so I was like a bug on a windshield.  But knowing me I will likely get back into that sooner than later.  It is the right time of year.

@movesmusic-  I like the looks of your park.  I'd be the dork just riding up and down the trannys and doing nothing off the lip.Cry  If my fav park was a mile down the road I'd be there 3-5 days a week.  It's so hard to get stoked for the half ass parks I have that are 10 minutes away.
 
JBburton- bug on a windshieldLOL  I've been the windshield.  Luckily no ones ever gotten too hurt from the impacts.

Oh yeah, I totally wouldn't want to hit anyone on a bike.  Shit just the fact that not only they but their metal ass bike would be hitting you is enough even if they were going the same speed and your size.

They do seem to be pricey.  And I wonder how durable they are.  I'm a big guy.  Am I going to snap the thing if I try a gap?  If they'd drop the price about a hundy I'd already have one.

I love hitting features off of banks/bank ramps.  Probably one of my favorite things ever in skating and it is something I can still do quite effectively.  Nice pics, spenser...

Nice pics spenser.  If your homie Jarrett is that bad ass on a skateboard why does he waste his time on two planks when it comes to snow?
 
@movesmusic-  I like hitting that stuff too, mostly just the banked part.  Not a whole lot of trick goes on at the top.  Still love that sensation of rolling it.

So I think I may have sprained my ankle again yesterday.  It's swollen, hella hurts and I can't put any pressure on it.  What sucks is both times I was doing fairly routine tricks.  First time, it was a back board to fakie on a down rail two years ago.  This time it was a front 180 over a large cone up a bank yesterday.  Hope the healing is quicker this time...

On a brighter note, I was playing with a little p&s that I've never used for action shots and I got some pics of some little 10-12 year old groms.  Kids are sick these days.  I haven't loaded them yet but when I do I'll come back and post.

Getting old sucks.  I'm in my 40's and hurt my ankles twice this past snow season doing a simple 180 off a box.

I don't have a lot of problems with the lower part of my body while snowboarding, but yeah, I'm 39 and I still skate a lot.  I had to stop bigger gaps, stairsets and lots of raw street stuff because I was getting so banged up that I didn't want to function during the day at work and so forth.  I started skating park a lot more and even started wearing full pads, which is something I had never done before two years ago.

I'm getting over tendonitis in my left ankle, and I'm pretty sure its from my soft boots/skating (Burton Hails and low-top Nike Morgans for skating)

I'm thinking about getting some hi-tops for skating to add a bit more support

Yeah, even watching the video of the first time I jacked me ankles I really don't see how it happened.  No video of the 2nd time, just lingering pain...

The first time I was riding Burton Rulers.  The second time I was wearing Vans Encore boots.  The Encores are definitely softer.

Ankle injuries are the worst!
I had one that would not go away for the longest time.
I think it feels better and I go skate a little and the pain comes right back. Took me like 4 months to heal enough to skate a little.

Don't know if I can handle 4 months of this crap.  Wakeboarding is right around the corner and I had just started to feel sorta comfy on my skateboard when I jacked it.  Now I'm affraid it'll take a while to get back to that.

Dude that definitely sucks.
I got had a fever for a week when my ankle was healing and I laid in bed the whole week. I would wake up and stretch it and then go back to bed. After the week my ankle felt fine.
I guess what Im trying to say is, when it feels better, try to stay off the ankle for a little while longer just to make sure it is healed up. Don't want to mess it up again

@ctoma, I have the Vans Cirro that I dig a lot.  I may go with some Encores because it's time for some new soft boots.  How long have you had them?  Thoughts on them?

Regarding the ankle fellas, when I sprained it two years ago, it basically shut my summer skating down.  I got some mellow skating in late summer, but it was ugly.  I hope that's not the case here...

^ they streaming on their homepage?  I saw my homie at what luck skateboards post something about it, but I didn't know it was streaming.  Probably while I'm at work.
 
 
@humblerooster- yeah, I know, I probably should stay off it longer.  I just hate not riding.  Bad enough I can't snowboard right now, but I can't even go cruise a mellow bowl.  I was in an area with some nice hills I thought about longboarding the other day- but it was wet....and I was alone.  I tend to get a lot less runs in alone.  Something about the walk back up.  Not even the physical exertion, just the time it takes me to walk a half mile uphill feels wasted.

The Vans Encores are pretty nice.  I bought them just before going to Breckenridge, I wanted another pair of boots because my Burton Rulers (that I've had for 3 seasons) were giving me some toe issues, I didn't want my trip ruined due to sore toes.  I went to a local shop and tried on Northwave (Legend I think), DC Judge, Thirty Two Lashed, Rome Libertine (worst fit of the bunch), and Vans Encore.  I kept each pair on for a while and walked around the shop.  The Encores felt the best with decent arch support for factory insoles and just really felt like they hugged my feet without being overly tight.  I put 4 days on them in Breck and they felt great.

Anyone watch the "pool party"?  I wish I could have stayed up until the end (had early morn work).  That was so rad seeing all the guys I look(ed) up to still ripping.  Funny to hear Grasso act like he was a total wonker out there.  Like "dude, if I could only come close to your level".  And he's bitchin about it.  He's a big boy (around my tubby size) and he was kill-n-it.

It was a great trip, we had an incredible time.  My video footage is quite boring, I'm still sorting through it to see if I can put together a decent edit.  Between coaching my son's baseball team, assist coaching the other son's team, volunteering at school, work and giving my wife attention with whatever time I have left over I haven't had a chance to edit the footage.

For those of us who have only ridden the hills of MI I highly recommend getting out to a mountain.  Everything about Breckenridge was great:  the people, the mountain (even though snow conditions were not optimal), restaurants, etc.
