Snowboarding can be brutal at times. Whether you're riding the piste, the pipe, or dipping under the rope into the back country, for all the amazing moments the possibility of getting properly fucked up is always there.

This is no less true when riding in the streets. Pro snowboarder Jake Aaronson was hitting urban rails at full tilt when he collided with a nearby tree. Hitting he trunk spine first, Jack broke his back.

However, the relative youngster is absolutely nails, and walked away from the incident after a short amount of time. We're stoked to say that Jack's making a full recovery, and has set his targets on being back on his board by the end of the season.
