I got my new Ibex and got a chance to try it out last night. It rides so much different than my CWB Marius. The speed I generate to the wake on a much shorter pull and the pop is so much more. My buddy towing could not believe his eyes the first time I really charged the wake. He thinks I cleared the height of the tower. (I doubt that)

All was good till I got a bit cocky. I was getting really close to landing a backroll on the Marius. The only problem was I would always over rotate. I must have spent too much time thinking about over rotating because I definitely didn't this time. I popped off the wake, under rotated and on the landing it was all on the nose and went down. I knew something was wrong with my leg, it was blazing on fire.

I went to Urgent Care this am an they took xrays. She feels I have crack in my tibia that is showing up in 2 of the 3 xrays. She is not 100% sure because my pain is not located near the break. so I get to go to the ortho tomorrow for another opinion.

Lesson learned
- Don't try too much on a board you just got. Get to know the board first.
- Don't overthink it either. Remember the tips from everyone this website and just do it.

Oh well, I hope its not broke.
