Can you say OUCH?

Well- All the men in my house are obsessed with their skateboards. Cory had one before we left to go to Cali but Rod and Matt both bought boards when we were there. Matt's friend Jasper had to join in the fun too. This is the collection of boards that you see as you enter my front room. Yes, It has become the MAN ROOM. It seems like every night they go out late to go boarding. Remember- we're in AZ! Nobody in their right mind would do that in the middle of the day in August!

Anyway, not long ago Matt came home pretty late (I was already in bed) wanting to know where my camera was. I was dead asleep and mumbled something incoherent. An hour later I got up because there seemed to be a lot of commotion going on downstairs for that late at night. Apparently Matt was going down a hill and went full speed into a sand bag and of course went flying. Here is the damage...

I'm not sure but I think the board won this battle!
He has now resorted to using this when he goes out...

Boys NEVER grow up! Gotta love 'em!

Cowabunga Dude. Can we say that looks Xtremely hurtful. Wow.

Well, if you are going to live on the edge, then you better expect some cuts along the way. I hope he gets better soon. Poor guy.

Have fun with the repair work. I will email you on the paint Kathy. I am not sure my self. I know that if you had a veneer finish on your project, then it has to be primed for sure. Other than that, a good sanding first usually will take the paint well. So do you know if it was a veneer or just wood on your painting project? Let me know. :)
