"On November 2nd my friends photographer Geno Fondreoli, Never Summer rider Nick Brownsberger, my other friend, Merrick Williams, and I drove up to Boreal Resort for preseason training. We had a great session from 3 to 8pm until I broke my left upper humerus bone while perfecting a 270 onto an urban down flat rail. I have been perfecting this trick for months and during this day trip, I had nailed it three times so my confidence was up so I attempted it again. Unfortunately, this one trick made my snowboarding season end for three months. Luckily, I do not require surgery but I have the pain of watching all of my friends have fun on the snow while I sit at home watching snowboarding videos for three months.
Don't worry, I will see you on the slopes in February 2011. I hope everyone has a great season and DON'T GET HURT!!!"
