I had a pretty weird slalom incident on Wednesday evening. I came into 4 ball at 13m (32 off) and fell in towards the boat with my shoulders a bit so I let go of the handle to avoid taking an unnecessary hit out the buoy, the next thing I know I was flicked up onto my back by a hard pull at my right ankle. Turns out that as I let go of the handle it somehow got wrapped around my front leg (right foot forward) and when the boat pulled, it pulled my foot from underneath me. I ski with a reflex boot in the front and the boot was pulled not only off my ski but off my foot too (it is now in the lake somewhere around 4 ball), I'm guessing by the boot coming off my foot it took the rope off from around my ankle with it.
My ankle hurt real bad so I went for x-rays but luckily nothing was broken, doc says its a bad sprain with some ligament damage, I have a splint for 5 days but guessing I'll be off the water for a few weeks. What I want to know is if anyone has heard of this happening before? Because I sure have not!
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
