So yesterday evening I went out for a few sets and one of my regular riding buddies brought along a mutual friend who I haven't seen in about 10 yrs. I remember back in the day he was a pretty advanced rider so I was courious to see if he still had his stuff. When it was time for his pull he said that he hadn't been on a board in about 2 years and not to expect much, so I figured he'd just be going for grabs and W2W jumps untill he got his legs back. Anyways he jumps stright in the water, no stretching... took about 2 warm up jumps then started throwing inverts, the 3rd one was a tantrum to broken femur.
After about 30mins in the water we finally cut off his binding and stabilizes his leg enough to move him back to the launch and wait for the ambulance. On the way back to the Dock I heard him mutter those terrible words that made my blood run cold "I don't have insurance".
I don't think that he's going to sue me, but you never know....Has any one had to deal with this issue?
Is this something I should be worried about?
