@ssusanoo 23131, and looking at May 9th. I'm just glad some people are getting theirs already. I can't say I really mind a few weeks delay (original ship date: 4/17). If it gets pushed to June, I may get a bit antsy. I'm almost 50, with 3 daughters... I've learned to be patient

RE: Injury Reduction or How to Crash at 17 mph
I'm going to repeat my advice I posted earlier... Learn to roll, and roll well. Yes, this works at high speeds. I was doing about 35 on my motorcycle when a car t-boned me. Rolled, and stood up. Sore for a year where the car hit me, but no injuries from flying through the air and hitting the pavement.
20 years of martial arts, but anyone can learn to roll. Practice so that it's natural and you don't have to think
RE: OW Owners: Injury Survey
No accident reports. Still waiting for my first board, the XR... But I think I have something useful to add.
I got t-boned by a car while riding my motorcycle, went about 40 feet through the air, landed on pavement. Hurt where the car hit me (for about a year), but no injuries from hitting the pavement.
No, I don't expect a cookie, or a star on my forehead... The reason I didn't get hurt was because of all the martial arts I've done. I've spent 1000s of hours practicing "ground engagement"
Spending some time to get comfortable with falling correctly will save you a lot of injuries. Rolling should be automatic, because you likely won't have time to think about it.
