On July 10th 2008 I helped judge the 12 annual Virgin River Classic Skimboard Competition in St. George Utah. During the competion, Dillon Manwaring one of the competitors, who is 23, had the freakiest accident I have ever seen. I was talking with him today and someone had a video camera on and got the whole thing. Now, a couple of months later he is still having a couple of issues.
Yeah, i need to go to the doctor and check on the status on my finger. its still bent and wont go straight. It doesnt bend all the way down either.
The accident is about 1:45 into the video is the accident, enjoy a bit of skim boarding until then. I’m the guy with the hat. I can’t believe how calm Dillion was during the whole ordeal.
