Bad crash

My buddy was too focused on getting in the footage, aka ROOST CAM, grab bar mounted camera, he failed to see the 20-25 foot drop off to flat. One tough S.O.B. man, 50 years old. And I captured it all on my two cameras. https://youtu.be/oJet278KBno

That is 100% exactly how I broke both my wrist. On a drop off just about the same height and everything.
I just hit it way faster and didn't even notice.
Glad he's okay and able to walk away and keep riding. Us ****ing banshee riders I guess

He went to the local hospital, xrays show nothing, came home, more xrays...nothing. 4 months later they find a BROKEN FEMUR. He's a tough s.o.b., he's back on the horse, rode last week.

ouch!

This is why Im super careful in the sand, the sun can play with the shadows and you never know where there might be a drop or dip. Ive taken some knarly spills like that in the past, maybe not that bad and I lived-came dang close to getting hurt tho.

I ride hard man, but as I reach that point of "throwing caution to the wind" the thought of seeing myself walking into work the following monday vs limping into work makes riding smart and cautious that much easier of a decision. Had a 1st time duner do the same type of crash 20 minutes into his 1st ride last fall. Told him my #1 rule-ALWAYS come to a stop if you can't see the other side of that dune face. What's his best friend say to that? "Well, you don't have to stop but..."one and done, hobbled around with a broken foot rest of the weekend.

I don't know all the details surrounding that, whether it was just a fracture or what. He's back on the horse though, Another dune trip planned late april. Really hope I don't capture such a crash again, but if I do of course it's going on youtube lol.

Yep. I used to do all sorts of stupid and more risky stuff without regard. These days if I feel I wont make it, or my gut tells me its a bad idea I dont do it. I know in most cases I can do whatever it is, but just like you-the thought of having to go to the ER and miss work or hobble in on monday doesnt sit well with me. I injured both shoulders by falling off and took eons to heal, messed up my left knee, hurt my left wrist, took more than my fair share of spills. Ill take it easy these days.
