A friend of mine showed up Friday morning with an old blank ski they used to step-off of for barefooting and was in the mood for a laugh, so he gave it to me to try.

I got up on it the first time. However, my 3rd fall, I busted a rib (again). Haven't gone to the ER yet. I think it's only bruised. But, since I have pic's, I had to share....

Here's the ski


I'm ripping it up (not quite course material though)


Here's the rib-fall (ouch)


Time for Vicodin again

Ribs suck, I am 3 weeks yesterday from a good fall and not even close to getting back on the water. Did my ankle too. Maybe they will both come around in another few weeks. I am hoping it is not a season ender, but it sure is hanging around. Broke my other ankle 2 years ago and they sure do take time to recover. I think it stinks getting old.

Agree with BigMac on this one....the O'Neill Law vest holds the midsection together pretty tight with some pretty hefty padding. I've taken some hard falls the last few weeks and have banged everything up but the ribs.
