Has anyone looked at which tricks cause the most injuries and what the main factors are in each?

I tore an ACL on a Tantrum, probably too extended when landed.

Couple of sprained ankles. One attempting a switch backroll (cable) and the other a HS540 (boat).
Jammed knee from a funky straight legged landing off a kicker.

Kind of an old thread.

5 year old thread nice!

Ill just throw this out there tho, tootsies and dum dums are lethal for ankles. Not the hardest trick but if you mess it up, its so easy to wreck your ankles.

Learning backrolls had somewhat been my demise! Severe concussion, lost memory for 4 days. Broke 3 ribs. And recently (even though I can do them fairly easily now, just rushed one for no good reason) tore my meniscus and ruptured my joint capsule in my left knee by dislocating it. I've also separated my lower C4 and C3 Vertebrae doing a HS Indy FS 180 to the flats, caught a gnarly back edge. Also put a tooth through my lower lip trying a raley. Haha...I wonder why I still do this! Oh yeah...BECAUSE ITS FREAKING AWESOME!!!! Going to get my G23 this winter so I'll be able to hurt myself even more!! (knock on wood)

Regular footed rider

Right ACL on regular roll to revert
partial tear right rotator cuff TSFS 360 (landed wrapped and fell back without letting go)

Partial tear left pec.... this one is a bit embarrassing, was trying to learn to nollie start at the cable, got a bit too extended and tail gazed, threw my right hand off to balance myself out and tried to bring it down one handed (left), just barely dug the nose and thought I could pull it out. The upward angle of the cable got the better of me. When it tore it sounded like velcro being torn apart.

cab roll - torn acl, mcl, meniscus left knee
double cab roll - broken fibia, right leg
cab 3 -meniscus, right knee
pete rose - knock out, bad concussion to the point of throwing up the next day
hit head on rail (with helmet) - knockout, woke up inside TSR, felt fine, someone picked me up and drove me home
had 2 or 3 more concussions, but they involved 3 or 4 back edges in one set
