    Crashed my stand up Super Jet this weekend at about 50 MPH. Not sure why I was going that fast in light chop. I was wishing I had my helmet on and some ear flaps for that one. luckily the right side of my face kept the rest of me from being hurt.

    Couldn't figure out what he hit seeing it was a face plant. Doctor said it looked like a sharp edge. He stayed in the bindings

    Damn that's crazy. I wonder if there was something in the water? Small chance.

    I think I may have caught the back side of the board when the front size caught an edge. That is the only way I could see getting the cut. Lets just say from now on I will wear my helmet that was actually in the boat when that happened.

    I have been in and around boats and various dragged items all of my life.

    This weekend started out with my Son kneeboarding. We had a few guests in the boat with no experience. First ride my Son pops up after a mild crash with a gash just like the one above. He wasnt even aware of it though he did feel the impact. Off to the hospital and 3 stitches later in the forehead. We are baclk on the water inside of 3 hours.
    Back in the boat. My Sons's friend gets on the kneeboard, crashes and pops bleeding in the back of the head. It is a smaller gash and the guy wants to continue. The guests are now losing faith in what used to be a simple and safe sport . Fortunately nothing else goes wrong and even the guests get a few turns and all but 1 were successful getting up and having fun with no further injuries.
    Though the friend stopped bleeding with a little direct pressure. I was scared to take him to the hospital. 2 kids, same day, different times with cuts in the head. I am sure I would have to explain that to CPS or someone That was joke btw.
    I might be a little more open minded in regards to helmets.
    I am used to seeing or having been in some pretty horrific cartwheels and crashes with no bleeding. Plenty of soreness and stiffness.
