Murray took a gnarly wreck at Wake Games today. I didn't see it happen, but he got carted off in an ambulance and I was told by another rider that he might have broken a rib or two. How's he doing? I hope it's not too serious...

Was told he had multiple fractured ribs but was going to be ok

Damn, how'd it happen? I heard he fell near the pipe rail but didn't actually hit the obstacle, just the water. He must've crashed pretty hard. What was he going for?

Saw this on Facebook from Hyperlite.

The Nautique Boats Wake Games has ended and I wanted to let everyone know Shaun Murray is doing as well as can be after his wrap KGB to broken ribs. It was windy today, real windy, as Shaun cut at the 1st trick in his pass, he said he over cooked the roll to fast leaving him suspended and stalled for a second. Facing a headwind just didn't allow him to continue the rotation needed to get back to his board, so he plummeted from his peak - past the trough of the wake and landing on his back. Shaun is religious about wearing his Coast Guard approved vest and it paid off today. It was a tense moment from the crash to getting him on the dock and having to wait for the medic. He's at home now and he'll definitely catch up on any missed movies.

What's funny is after the Wake Games PR was released I looked at his heat and he only got 5 points. He laughed saying that crash should have at least warranted 15. Come on judges, it's Shaun Murray, just give him more than 5!

Ouch. Look slike he is in some pain. Hope he heals quick. Agreed that rib injuries are the worst on the water. Even more so when you still have to hook up the boat, drive it home, park it and unhook it, all while your ribs are fractured.

Am I the only one who sees the irony in the fact that he was so influential in this boats design then it goes out and destroys his ribs in the first competition he rides behind it, lol.

Best Wishes Shaun! I was looking at the wind that day and though it was going to make things tough.

Man tough break. The KGB has got his number. He was knocked out cold on a KGB 5 at a tour stop a couple of years ago. I hope to see him make a quick recovery and get back to the comps. He's still doing very well against the youngsters and winning heats.

The KGB is a scary, dangerous trick, and it has wrecked many a great rider. Not to mention the KGB 5!

Yeah it was a good 15mph eastern winds that day blowing right down the lake. It was pretty rough conditions.

It also brought a chill to the air, I know it sounds weird but us FL residents were cold with it in the 60s and blowing so hard. Im not going to call Rusty a wuss but the dude was shivering like no other and immediately ran into his rv to change after his run.

It was my own fault for leaving too early on the KGB. Caused me to under rotate the flip and took it straight to the ribs. In bed since getting home from the hospital. You can follow me on FB and Twitter shaunmurraywake, or instagram shaunmurray. pretty crazy about instagram getting bought for a Bill, huh?! Shaunmurray.com just went live and I posted some more details about my injury on the blog page.
Dave, thanks for stopping by The Boarding School a couple weeks back. For those of you who don't know, Dave Williams can shred, which is always cool when people in the industry can ride and are involved b/c they enjoy riding.
The G23 wake is something that you will be blown away by. I know there has been a lot of hype, but it is warranted and you can't say anything until you stand in one, especially behind it.

Rib injuries are the worst. Take forever to heal. They are the most painful because there is an artery, vein and a nerve that run under ever rib! Every time you breathe, cough, sneeze its agonizing pain. When I use to shoot x ray these people were in the MOST pain of any except kidneys stones and well women giving birth.

Ribs are nasty. I did just one and the pain from that was intense, can't imagine more than one! Ouch. Speedy recovery Shaun, but I know from experience it's not so speedy!
