Windsurfing - slight concussion, cracked/bruised ribs, damaged rotator cuff, knuckle separation, twisted ankles, etc. Riding in extreme conditions, squalls, tropical storms/hurricanes. I was a lot younger and crazier then.

Skateboarding - fractured elbow, numerous bruises, etc.

Snowboarding - fractured wrist, numerous bruises, etc.

Golf - got hit in the ass cheek with a ball. The bruise had dimple marks. :lol:

Hockey - high sticked across the eyes. Hit in ass cheek with a slap shot. The bruise had NHL on it. :lol:

Kiteboarding - knee over-extension, sprained wrist. I am a lot more cautious/conservative now that I am older - more aware of my mortality.

I prefer soft water vs. hard, and less hard objects to fall into or get hit by. :)

You have not been easy on yourselve...

For me:

Kitesurfing: Cuts (eyebrows board kiss) and bruises (HF on body and legs.

Windsurfing: Almost drowned (getting stuck under water). Bruises

Longboard: Twisted ankle,

Football (field): Bruises ( literally every match)

Football (indoor): Twisted ankle 4 times.

Climbing trees (or actually...falling from it): 6 week shoulder injury and counting..

Road bike: 2 near misses.... that would likely have resulted in fatality. 5 or so near misses that would have resulted in serious injury.

MTB: Shoulder dislocation..
