somewhat skate related, this chick is repping Fine-Co:
I worked at the worlds largest block party yesterday and helped my buddies charity Amigo Skate Cuba raise money for skateboards and musical gear to bring to Cuba to give them to impoverished and downtrodden youth of Havana. We raised a good amount of money, and got to witness debauchery and classlessness as the day grew longer. It was fairly entertaining aside from when the cops chased a dude carrying a gun within 5 feet of me after the guy got finished shooting another guy for a parking spot. Stay classy miami.
and here's a finished pic of the new Shipyard deck:
It's funny in the sense that it's really a freak accident kind of thing, but it's not funny at all how bad it hurt.
I have a birth defect, or better described as a hereditary condition known as Ligamentous Laxity. It's not very common (I've never met anyone with it.) Essentially my ligaments are ridiculously stretchy which allows me to dislocate every joint in my body. I can freely dislocate fingers, my elbows, knees, shoulders...etc...like a party trick.
Unfortunately it leaves me prone to sprains, and that's exactly what happened with my back. I sneezed while I was falling down onto my couch which cause me to stiffen up, in turn dislocating my back at the lumbar and causing a lot of ligament and muscle stress resulting in a fairly severe sprain.
On the other hand I do avoid breaking bones for the most part (I've never broken a bone at a joint.) And I also can heal a bit faster from ligament damage when compared to someone without this issue. In the long run it sucks though. I'm hoping it skipped my kids, but I'm skeptical on that. I've been told crap like this skips generations, but my dad has signs of it, though not nearly as severe as I have it.
