Don't do that. Broke my ankle sliding into the boards feet first.

If you can manage it, either hit the board with your side (will distribute the impact throughout your body creating less damage, or try to get your legs up high in the air so that your butt/hip hits the boards.

But no matter what, NEVER go in head first. Better to break your ankle, wrist, or hip than it is to break your neck or skull.
