use two skis wear your barefoot suit. I hit the water hard jumping the wake out of the hole, landed on my side, head slapped the water and I punchered an ear drum if that makes you feel any better.

hate to bring a old thead up but I broke two ribs working around the house about 8 years ago. well 3 years ago I was getting ready to ski behind a friends 190 and I felt one of the ribs pop again. well since then I have only surfed.

tonight on a great glass water I wanted to go wakeboard again. well as soon as my girlfriend hit the throttle the same rib popped again.

question do they ever heal fully?
