Hitting trees while snowboarding never ends well. Jake Aaronson hit one while filming street for the new WYLD INSTINCT movie, and ended up breaking his back.

Heed our advice: be sure to ride between trees when you're snowboarding. They're big, hard and even if you like hugging them, they definitely won't hug you back when you come crashing into them into them.

Jake Aaronson lost control after backflipping over a street rail, and went full speed into a tree in the landing. He ended up breaking his back, but luckily walked away from the spot with his head held high. He also plans to be back on his board before the end of the season and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Heavy stuff!
