Last night, I was riding back to my fiances house. Apparently, the lights on my back went out without me noticing. Around 12:00am, a car came speeding up behind me. I turned around and flashed my light at them, and they swerved away about 10 feet before hitting me. I sped up in case they didn’t see me in time, wobbled, and fell about 32mph. They stopped and helped me, actually took me home. Another car came by and didn’t see my board, and ran it over. Entire right side is scraped up, and board is completely destroyed.
Good news I guess is that I get to build it exactly how I want after having more experience but it’s gonna be awhile before I rejoin the community due to money.
Also, quick PSA, always wear a helmet!! Probably wouldn’t be here without it, looking at the scrapes on the visor. I’m also gonna be getting a motorcycle jacket, and padded hip protectors. Probably a lighter helmet too.
Anyways, thanks everyone for the awesome community I got to be a part of. I can’t wait to get back in!
I pretty much always ride withan armor suite. And throw on a kevlar shirt/hoodie for night riding.
If you are looking for those things
Leatt 5.5 body protector, or evs street vest(spine and rooost ) are good.
And the best hip pads are Hillbilly Hip Protectors.
Others might not say it. As you need to clean daily using this method. But I’ve always kept my road rashes wet, as to not impede my range of motion when it scabs over. If you keep it wet just clean and redress often.
Baths feel great. I mostly mean with ointments(not water). I normally use A&E oinments as it has the vitamins in it the skin uses most to heal. Or Alocain burn cream. Depending on how deep it is. Start off with a cream so the wound can still breath. Then moved to A&E once it stops making the yellowish red blood plasma purges so it starts moisturizing. And make sure to stay hydrated
Also if you want the scars to subsided continue to apply a&e for 3-4 months after the wounds are healed. Glad your mostly ok
