Today I was having the best run of my life, I hitting toe side jumps in to the flats and even throwing in some grabs, until... I was about to land and the tip of my board was low and I figured I was going to face plant so I braced for impact. When I hit, my knee went into my chin.
Last time this happened I chipped a bunch of teeth, so that was the first thing I checked. It was fine so i was thinking thats going to hurt a little but ill be ok. Then i saw blood, I started to feel around on my face for something and my finger dropped into this huge 1 inch gash in my chin.
It never really hurt that much, just freaked me out, I went to the emergency room and ended up with 8 stitches. The best part was the doctor was really cool and let me video the whole thing. I will try to post up pictures soon (if your curious).
I have been wakeboarding for less than a year and have already had 2 injures that required a doctor.
Any one else have any like this happen?
