big bowl
: I mostly carved the big bowl but I tried for grabs. Second photo is how I hurt myself. I land 2/3rds down the bowl and put my arm out so I wouldnt slam on my hip. I still landed on my hematoma and now I have a sprained forarm. Help? I think I'm going to have to delay vert until I can not hurt myself so much.
Sh* only advice ... the higher you get, you must remember the wall is your friend. It will help you slide down and not freefall to the flat bottom. In a way, vert is safer once you figure out the falling/sliding. With stuff under 6 feet, you just fall to the flat. It's good the skateboard then, you can just hit eject.
Ice, ice, sleep with ice. Wrap it, rest it. Take care and recover quickly.
