 i wondered what happened to this guy, i seen a video of his riding a few months back and was like 'no fucking way' he does what I thought to be impossible with such grace. He even goes all out when breaking bones lol. Many of healing vibes sent your way.

 I want to see him at Rampage too, he is a trick meister. Take calcium supplements, and try to get off the pain killers ASAP, cause they are bad for the liver. Feel free to PM me for more sound medical advice, but lucky you're young, you'll heel up.

 This injury sucks. I know exactly what your going through man. I dislocated my ankle, shattered my fibula, broke my tibula and tore two ligaments at the end of august. Just started physical therapy last week. Wont ride a bike or snowboard for a while. Hang in there and get well soon, your riding is amazing!
