Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
Yesterday evening my wife and I went wakeboarding and my wife was first up for a set. She was edging down the wake on her heelside and leaned forward catching her front edge resulting in her face planting hard to the water... She was pretty shaken up and when we got her in the boat everything seemed fine until we noticed blood in her hair... It turned out to be about 3 inch long gash on the top of her head right on her part. The gash was bad enough to require 6 staples in her head.... I just found it crazy that it happened because I saw her fall forward and do a face plant and her head definitely did not hit her board or the handle.... The only thing I can think of is that the force of her hitting the water was so hard that it pulled on both sides of her hair and split her head open right at the part... Just thought I'd share...
