If you fall down, you gotta get back up! Well, i have ended up on my back for my past three consecutive rides. None have been very bad falls. Just a cut up elbow and a scraped up knee. I don't even need new gloves or anything. I have gone the entire spring abd summer without falling and sure enough, come november i've ended up eating it three rides in a row. what's the deal? I think i'm just taking my turns too fast. But taking turns fast is so much fun. Unfortunately, i think it's something i need to get better at... Maybe i'm just getting tired. I've been thinking about the ski season lately. I've even been ebaying for a new board... Anyways, eating dirt isn't so bad. Humbling experiences are good for the soul. Happy (and safe) fall riding to all!

I took a good one today. Just a scraped knee and a little confusion, but it keeps you honest.

You may have gotten a concussion on your last fall. It isn't November yet.

Ben, you are thinking snow and falling three times in a row? This does not bode well for boarding does it?
