Hit in the head by my own board, I went right back out.
Got stitches in my foot when out at Sunset when a guy got pushed back while ducking, he didn't let go. I drove to the Kaiser clinic in Kahuku, they asked if I had an appointment.
Stitches in my head when a newbe dropped in on me at Pyramid and we banged heads. Sorry no photos.

Had to quit the Vicodin yesterday and it was still messing me up even after I quit. Normal is okay by me, and ibprofen seems to be doing the trick now.

One thing I found out is if you take that stuff for a few days you get really backed up. Anyways I'm hanging close to the banos today.

Come on hand...f'ing heal!

sorry no pics happened a while ago.

1. during a backside air 180 I somehow managed to punch my board during roation. My palm went through the fiberglass right at the stringer and caused an half inch ding. The fiberglass cut through my palm and I had a piece of skin out of my hand hanging off. 2 inches long 3-4 mm thick gushing blood pretty bad. I needed about 6 stitches but I ended up just walking home, taping up my hand and puttin on a latex glove while surfing. 6 weeks to heal cuz I didnt get stitches but I was young and dumb. What can I say.

2. grabbing rail during backside barrel and the lip closed a bit. It clipped me and after falling I was laying back down on my fins. Tossed over the falls 3 times while being pinned to the fins. Turns out I broke my fin on my back 6 inches worth of shaved skin and a deep cut. The good news was that I could still surf once bandaged up.

sorry i got no picts, but i bet no one can beat this injury.


I went over the falls at pipe and as i tumbled i ended up sitting on my skegs and got castrated, sure hurt, with blood gushing everywhere. Plus shitty thing I lost my balls as they were never recovered. Thank god though doctors were able to attach swine balls and my body didnt reject them.
