this last friday at midwest wakefest i was trying a roll 2 revert, came down on my board a little shy of 180 bounced and took an otherwise normal (or what should have been) crash. As soon as I hit the water i felt my rib break under the pressure of my vest buckle. I ride the oneil outlaw which is basically cardboard, and had it strapped pretty tight with the buckle to the left right under that rib. Anyone else had this happen?
Anyone else with a broken rib how long were you off the water? I think I could handle riding with pain in a few weeks if it was just the broken rib, but doc says I also seperated my rib from the cartilage and im worried that will be easily reinjured.... www.wakecoupons.com
