      Yeah, I know that drill. Tore my MCL last year. Injury King! Haha

      My liners packed out a bit after this whole season, and I wasn't holding an edge very well at times. I was compensating by tightening all of the buckles more. I got a shim too. Anyway, I was flying through a bend and came out of it onto some mixed terrain. I caught my right, inner edge, at speed, and the rest is history...

          That sucks man!! I feel your pain mate... 4 years ago took a rally bad fall into a tree on my snowboard and fractured my femur. That was day one of the season.

          Hope your healing time is fast!

            Wow, the femur? That had to have been some fall!

            But thanks, man! I guess I have a long couple months ahead.
            Now to figure out how NOT to get fat while I'm unable to work out, haha!

              Yeah. If you ever are on a snowboard bombing down a black and hit an icy patch near the woods/glades, don't tuck your legs down to try and plow out. It makes a very nice area for your right leg to break when you catch an edge as you are being tossed into the trunk of a tree.

                I will definitely keep that in mind if I step onto a snowboard! (Which I may have to think about switching to, considering my leg twisting injuries)

                  I see by your signature line you are running non-release bindings. Not trying to be a jerk, but since you mention leg twisting injuries have you thought about switching to release bindings?

                  I hope your ankle heals fast and that you are able to get back into whatever you are into during the long non-winter months.

                    Yeah, I'm definitely taking release bindings into consideration for next year. Not a jerk at all, BTW. Haha

                    I also have to figure out my boot situation. I probably wouldn't have lost control in the first place if it wasn't for my loosening boots. My ankle probably wouldn't have twisted like that, either. I've been through a few different boots, bad boot fitters, vacuum fitting, shims, heel lifts, you name it. My current ones have done better than any boot I've had in the past. Great control and comfort. But the liners packed out by the end of this season. I got a vacuum fit and shims 2 weeks ago and I think it made it worse. I was really having trouble holding an edge especially in fast, hard carves.

                    Oh well...at least I had my best season yet. Thanks for the well wishes, man!

                          Thanks! I'd imagine you had a fun time with your long recovery :-/ I'm definitely not looking forward to missing out on a few spring things I had planned. Oh well, at least winter was awesome!
