    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.

    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.
