Took a number of biology classes for my major, we worked on cadavers. If it is broken out near the tip of you toe, it is essentially how much pain you can handle. The only thing that will heal the toe is to keep it immobalized. Minor nerve damage may occur in the tip of you toe, depending on how bad the break is, but the key is the knuckle of your toe. If you want to avoid arthirtus later, I would stay off it until it heals, but if you want to ride, and you can stand the pain, by all means go for it.

thanks rick
I see a orthopedic sports surgeon on Monday

my problem is that I also work on my feet
it's more painful standing and walking on the side of my foot...than the pain from the toe itself

but I tape the toes together and don't get any flex in it....or try not to

just don't know if I can just drive this brand new boat ......... that board is gunna find its way back on my feet
