    Wake jumping + metal rim glasses = bad

    I took my GPR out today and got some big air, I screwed the landing. I did a face plant into the start/kill switch. My glasses cut (deep cuts) me under my left eye in two places, cut my nose and my lip as they went down my face. I also got cuts inside my mouth from smashing into the switch. I must have hit the seat hard too, as my ass hurts. I'm going to find some safer glasses, and try not to crash.

    big air hurts

    Not sure how high I got it, but it was the highest I've been. I had a feeling it was gona hurt when I landed and it did. Knocked the lanyard out of the switch with my face, I was still holding on but the motor died. I'll try to get some pictures. The swelling is much worse today.

    that's my biggest fear, smacking my face into the handlebars! I almost got tossed a couple of times on Friday. Running with your side to the seas in 1-3 footers and going 40-50 is a recipe for a couple surprises here and there.

    Thats how I got launched at 72 last week...hit giant rollers at a 45 deg angle , launches you too the moon and rotate's ski so that you land on the side, then you get body slammed like a mo-fo, stripped naked,and lose your brand new gargoyle sunglasses..all in a days fun

    I had laser eye treatment 6 years ago. best money I've ever spent (except for buying the Waverunner!). Now I only need plastic sunglasses, and can see for miles! I also had a bad incident with real glasses after a motorcycle racing crash, and that frightened the cr8p out of me! Thought I'd lost one eye, maybe both. After that the laser was a no brainer. Sorry to hear of the pain you're in!
