While we're on the subject of Pine's busted ankle, I finally got the details on how it went down: While practicing for the "Legends" division at last months "V-Bowl" contest in Hermosa beach, Pine went into a high speed board slide. While coming out of this move, he knew he was not going to make it, and went into a knee slide. Apparently, his right leg didn't come around fast enough; his toe caught on that super sticky surface and BAM! ? busted ankle. Immediately, Bowman, Elguera and Hackett jumped into the bowl to check out the situation and assist, Germ and Tesnar showed up with hammers in hands after jumping down the scaffolds and knocking the hatch door open to help their bro out. While carrying Pine out of the escape hatch, Bowman and Hackett told Pine that it's was just a sprain ... "Yeah right!" Bowman took pictures of the ankle while Pine lay quietly saying nothing and cracking jokes. Pine awaits Germ and Tesnar at the hospital for 1 1/2 hours (where could they be? we all know ...sessioning a pool nearby- of course!) Arab shows up after going to multiple hospitals. The results; Clean break on the right fibula, Doc inserted a plate and seven screws, 1-week later ... took the splint off and removed staples, cruising around on crutches, back in action in 4 months, been seen scoping out the new pool at the Clairmont "Y" in San Diego. Secretly jotting down lines. Will probably carve the fuck out of it and board slide around the whole deep end. Pine has also been seen down at ACE Tattoo in OB working on his leg piece. Pine will soon be a free and single man again, due to a divorce... ladies, feel free to send pics and get well cards to firstname.lastname@example.org
