Frends Crew snowboarder and 2011 Winter Dew Tour halfpipe champ Luke Mitrani, recently underwent surgery in New Zealand. After taking a hard fall on his back in a snowboard halfpipe 3 days ago, Mitrani experienced a brief moment of paralyzation. A medical helicopter airlifted Luke “Squid” Mitrani to Christchurch Hospital 2 hours away from the snow park. Surgeons gave immediate attention to Mitrani by taking part of his hip bone to stabilize his neck that was broken at the C5 vertebrae.

Hang in there Squid!
