- Snapped Achilles & snowboarding?
I did mine in 2004 and had the repair op. was riding within a year and after 3 years would have no hesitation in skiing ( or boarding). Does it give you any bother? The risk of re-rupture reduces over time, I would hoe your healed nowPosted 4 years ago

I found it too uncomfortable to board after rupturing mine and having a surgical repair. The top of the boot pressed into the top of the scar when I turned onto my heel edge. In fairness I was in hire boots so there was probably a boot out there that wouldn’t have finished just where there was some scar tissue. I do remember finding it hard to hold a toe edge for prolonged periods though.Posted 4 years ago
Fortunately it gives me absolutely no trouble skiing and I was always a better skiier than a boarder!
