Hey guys, well everything was going great, I was climbing the 12s at Rocksport and sent every boulder problem except for the two pinks. I think I even came close to onsighting a 12A at the Red (Magnum Opus), but I'm a wuss when it comes to warming up, and onsighting Air Ride proved to be a pretty bad warm up (flash pump). I got super strong over the winter, and then it happened, I wrecked my shoulder. I don't know how exactly, it didn't happen all at once, I just noticed it one day. I tried to climb on it for a month and it finally started hurting so bad I knew I needed a break. I should have went to the doctor, especially since I now have health care, I just figured it would be fine with some rest. Well it's been over a few months and it's still messed up. My stepdad is a doctor and looked at it the other day and said it looks like a partial dislocation or some shit like that. In the meantime I have been skating, it's a beautiful sport and I love the fact that you don't need rest days, so I'm putting pro hours in. After the first month in I practically broke my finger, I think it's crooked now and again I should have went to the doctors. So months later I can still feel that it's not 100%, but it gets better everyday. Well the moral of this story is go to the freaking doctor if you get any injury more severe than minor. Stay safe everybody, and here is a parting shot--my new deck:

P.S. I would have posted a pic of the chariot, but I don't want anybody knocking off our design before the big race.

Sorry about the injury, but glad to hear skating is filling the void. Hope to see you back in the gym soon.

Well I tried to do some climbing and my shoulder was jacked the next day, but at least I have this to show for it:

I'm trying to incorporate skating and climbing, so in this photo I aimed to climb a skateboard and skate a mountain:

I don't have a wide angle lens and so I took almost 100 photos and combined them in Photoshop (file-automate-photomerge)

And of course there's a video:
