You should submit a few of those photos to waterski mag. I'm pretty sure they give prizes for the best wipeout shots.

I crashed hard a few years back....just 6 weeks after I had my little girl. Out the front, 3 cartwheels, and an underwater experience I will never forget. My vest blew open I fell so hard. Ended up with busted ribs, tweaked spine, buised spleen, and whiplash. Ended up having to have some sort of steroid injections in my spine twice to get the nerves to release. I'm glad I don't have a photo of that one. It's one I'd like to forget.

I *felt* like the wake was going to eat me..

That picture was taken on Kalamalka Lake, in the Okanagan valley (interior of British Columbia).

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pristine, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "-- WOW--What a Ride!"

Stevie boy jr. thought is was cool to catch me in a tough fall today.
JohnB and Brian, I had a couple of rough ones today. Feels good to be on the ragged edge again!

Well I went down hard this morning,no picture.
A picture would not have shown what happen.
You know when you fall forward and do a flip or two and the ski stay on your foot.It happens to me allot.(too much)
Well I wonder where that ski is wail I'm falling.
Today I got bitted by that ski.
It hit me in the jaw and my arm.
It felted like I broke my jaw and it still does.
My arm has one hell of a burse and is very sore.
I think I might have knocked some teeth lose too. I can't eat.
My driver today was the was the guy that that all of the pictures for me.
He is also the X-ray Tec. at the hospital and if it does not stop hurting he want to get x-rays of it.
I would go do that now but today is his day.
No smiley face this time I hurt.

It happen on the first pass of the first set.
I did get back in the boat to see how bad I was cut.(there was blood on my face)
Once I seen it the cut was not too bad I finish the set.
I found a little hard to ski with a numb arm and a jaw that might be broke.It happen at ball 4 and I had a bad ball 4 on all passes on the first and second set.
Tomorrow will be better. ( I can still smile a little )

JohnB, sorry to hear about the fall. Get that looked at right away dude.
Fortunately I only have a bruised deltoid from that fall of mine but I told you about the one I had last year. No fun.

Bert, it was not that bad, good thing my shoulder hit and not my ribs again. The over under that JohnB had can be brutal. Many years ago a friend of mine fell that way and the ski cut a big gouge in his vest. It was an EP with RTP and his ski came off and ran him over. Good thing it only hit his vest. I think it was the next year he shattered his eardrum jumping in competition. It even broke his helmit. I don't think he ever jumped again.
