On some tricks... when i fall, I hurt my balls...usually its any toeside trick.. like TS Spins, Frontrolls, Scarecrows... (the worst are frontrolls... WOW, when i cut in to do a frontroll now... my sack shrivles up naturally like it does in cold water just cuz it knows its about to get hurt... and it sucks) ... i even had a sore left ball for like 4 days one time... but it happens every once in a while... not all the time of course, but just enough for me to post a thread seeing if any one out there is having the same problem as I am? what should i/we do about it?

well I'm having a similair problem but I hurt them when I acually fall and I skip across my ass the water shoves them or grazez them It fees like RONALDO kicked me in the groin.
SOLUTION 90% of the time is having a wet suit on or having SPEEDO like trunks and Shorts over them ofcorse to keep them all tucked in.

The pain should be a good motivator not to miss next time.

Boys, boys, boys........Please use the correct terminology. As you know Balls bounce, since yours don't you shouldn't be using that word.
Now nuts don't bounce, even if you slam them on the ground as hard as you can. Instead they break or crack, however you choose to perceive.
Or you can use the anatomically correct word, but that's just not as fun word.

do i sense disrespect to the sensitivity of this subject???

lol, they don't crack either, just compress much like a jugling ball.

i feel ure pain, thats why i always wear wetsuit shorts under my boardies, its not worth it when u take a face plant and it just slams them towards ure feet.

everytime i board freeballin my nuts are on fire at least once when i fall. I have now vowed not to go without somethin underneth. That always solves the problem for me. I guess when there so large they're bound to get hurt. It's a problem i'll sadly have to deal with the rest of my life.

So I guess that begs the question...since boardshorts have no support in them...what is appropriate to wear under them??? Boxers? Briefs? Jock?

Under Armor boxer breifs. Keeps the twins high and tight.

JetPilot makes a pair of ride shorts with a neo liner. I have them and i wouldn't wear anything different. But they don't block all the pain

Shoot perfect timing! I can hardly walk around today and yesterday because of that problem. Only I deserve it, I did naked tubing... well I had a lifevest on. One is swollen up and seems to have something hard in there around that ball. Hope this goes away really soon, anyone know what happend to me?

O.K. I was bullriding several years ago and...ya'll know where this is going? the left one swelled about twice as big! Couldn't hardly walk for 2 days. Bullriding is no longer my favorite pasttime, but still have that problem on bad falls. anyone wear a jock strap?

I was thinking about wearing my hockey jock. It is basically compressions shorts with a sewn in supporter. I would put my cup in it too. I play hockey free ballin it, I don't think boarding would be much different.

front flips was the worst. The seam in my board shorts would get me. I changed my underwear to boxer briefs and the problem went away about 90% of the time . but of course I also got better and didnt fall as much..

i heard of some type of tight short called a "scooter"... i think tight unders are the solution... or at least the best we can do besides simply land the trick.

What a load of balls!! Yeah I know all about it kills me when I am trying my front rolls, it happens when I let go with my back hand too early and then it slows my rotation down, and then it's ahhhhhh!!!

I have a buddy that got "Testicular Torsion"( your testies switch sides in your sack). He landed on his rail while trying a trick. He said it felt like they were in a vise. He had to go to the ER to get them swapped back over.

Actually testicular torsion is when one of the testicles twists on its own cord. It's a medical Emergency if not attended to w/in 6hrs, since you're cutting off the blood supply to one of the "Boys"
Pain ( as your friend described) is usually a HUGE indicator of torsion.
I really don't think you wanna know how they fix it either.

Tried a few backrolls this weekend (got video, came close), and had the two-day twin pains for the first time. Hit a couple times in sort of a sitting position.

I used to hurt them quite a bit, but now that I wear a springsuit or full wetsuit it doesn't happen 1/10th as often.

One time at lake powell I tried to double up the Bulllfrog/Halls ferry. It was really bad water and it dropped out on me right before the wake. It snapped into my groin. Hurt for days.
