The Mark of a 45 Pound Paddleboard

The wind died down and the surf cleaned up a bit this afternoon. Had a nice lunchtime paddle with my neighbor, Tim. Then, on a little wave, it got ugly.
Trying to pull out the back of a late breaker I got the business end of my paddleboard. Pintail to the groinal area and rail to the forehead. Not as bad as I would have expected. The head wound pictured is negligible, a small knot and an even smaller abrasion, the pintail wound is centered around my dignity and does not photograph well. I need to build a board with rounded rails.

Sick abrasion. Thanks for not showing the dignity shot. Missouri Pacific Railroad needs round rails!
