Glad to hear somebody kicked this page up.  Some of you might know from facebook I broke my humerus getting skied over a submerged goose while skiing backwards. This was back on June 30, 2020.  I am getting better and the break is almost healed.   I am experiencing a limited range of movement that has me concerned.  I did shimmy out onto the boom for a few runs on Sunday which was super fun.  Not sure what the future holds in terms of how much or the type of barefooting I am going to do.  An injury like that is a signpost telling me something.  Not sure what it says, yet.

June 20th was a very short time ago. Four months is just the beginning of return to full speed ahead I would guess. I think you have to keep doing the physical therapy and decide next season what your real capabilities are. I think the odds are you won’t hit another goose OR win the powerball lottery so best to keep all the options open.

No goose for me............a torn rotator cuff and detached bicep.  Surgery was early May and I was just released to get on skis and start working my way back towards the feet.  I rode the d*ck Popes last weekend and could tell some work will be needed to get back to a baseline (of sorts) condition.  If the picture does not rotate.......

Ouch to above stories!  Get well soon.  That makes my story of hitting a 2 foot long by 2 inch stick that a beaver had sharpened on both ends seem very minor.  Sore heel for sure but I hit it perpendicular and not parallel which may have had much worse implications!

In my 40 years of barefooting, I've learned an important lesson when teaching beginners:
Make sure somebody is recording it!

Chuck, very true. It is great to have for the student and you can review your teaching method as well to see if there could be any improvements :)

I find video extremely useful as well for teaching others (if permission) and promoting safety. of course,that is assuming it was not a RodneyKing session :)
