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.

: : : thanks, my thumb is hard to move. Today I turn in my 2 weeks notice and probably will get fired cause of my arm

: : hang in there, dont ever give up. you know every knock is a boost. sk8 within the envelope for a bit. stuff the boss, someone as talented as you will have no trouble finding work.
: : keep those padded sk8 shorts on, we dont want you to end up with a bum like a babboon at the zoo, sorry, didnt mean to be cheeky.
: : cheers h.

: I got an inch of foam in those shorts already hahahaha. I'm not quitting! Just need to learn to fall. Its almost just one year me skating ramps. I have a lot to learn. I'm happy at what I've managed to do in just under a year. I have my eyes and ears open for any hints on how to fall better! Not sk8n is worse then the injury pain.

ive come back to skating after a long brake, sounds like you have started from scratch, you deserve to proud of your achievements.
your style looks like mine, ill bet you like fast carving best, it feels grouse.
cheers h .
