    About a dozen stitches in my head from a guy who bailed his board... about shoulder high.

    Torn MCL on about a head high day.

    That's about it in 35 years of surfing.

    Smashed my head on my desk resulting in a severe concussion from members not using the search function before creating a thread.

    OJ out the nose on that one dmonster, thank you. Numerous dings to the head, and a fin in the armpit. Did not cut the wetsuit but gashed the armpit pretty good.

    broken nose when i was just a grom, some stitchs to my calf from fin puncture....numerous occasions of a damaged ego whiffing on the takeoff on the wave of the set while all the boys are watching...

    18 outside, 30+ inside... Over the falls, luckily not a very big wave, infected 3 days later, out 5 1/2 weeks.

    "tramatic" sounds gnarly, almost like a disorder.
