I'm a skier by default ( a serious back injury means I can't afford to fall on my ass) but I would LOVE to have a go! I was a keen skateboarder in my teens, I know that doesn't automatically mean you'll be any good at it but I will never know. ;-(

It's inspirational I must say, when you got the injury? was it because of ski or during skiing? Can you snowboard again?

Surfing is much more hard as you are dependent on the waves and not solely on you own two feet! whereas in skiing its your feet that you rely on!

I agree Aladam88. Skiing is hard and challenging that's why I like it!

Hi, the injury was down to roller skating as a kid, I landed very heavily on my coccyx, over years it got worse and ended up permanantly dislocated, I have had it amputated but also had some ligaments and muscles re seated where they had formed attatchments to bone and soft tissue they had no business being attatched too.!
Chances are I will never snowboard as the slightest knock to that area is instant agony. I can't sit down properly, even chairlifts are killer. Rather than give up entirely I ski, we just choose areas with pomas/t-bars rather than chairs where possible.

What do you guys do when you are sore after snowboarding? Because being sore is what sucks, not snowboarding in general
