Went out to dinner earlier this evening. Dined at Saltgrass Steak House. To start out, had fried mushrooms for an appetizer and Shiner Bock beer bread, then ordered (don't laugh since this place is a steak house) chicken fried chicken with steamed veggies. Washed it all down with iced tea (and refills of).
Their chicken fried chicken with yellow gravy is so tender, one can cut it with a fork.
I'm not a registered member of the Seabreeze site. Just a lurker there. The reason I'm not a registered member is because it is mostly, in my opinion, info geared to surfing and downwinding. Very little flat water paddling stuff, if any, which I do a lot of.
And I just can't get into their new site software they changed to. I liked the old Seabreeze site software much better.
From another thread:BTW, that was a nice review with a nice shot of the underside of your new Kronos in the link you provided. Do you have a link to where you got your new Kronos from?
Thanks for the info. I've filed it for future reference.

When I first saw the video, I didn't realize his 8'10" Kronos is just 1" shorter in length than my 8'11" Hammer. But my Hammer is 31" wide. The narrower 26.5" width of his Kronos sure did make his board seem longer to me.

In your video, it seemed your new Kronos was much longer than 8'10" and wider than (26.5"). The video gave me the impression your Kronos was at least a 10' or longer and I was guessing the width was much more than (26.5").

Just curious as always.
In the video, you seem to be on a long length board. If you don't me asking, what is the length of the board as well as the width of the board you were surfing?
Having my left shoulder operated on 15 years ago and now my right shoulder is going to be operated on in 6 days, looks like I'm going to be in the market for a new paddle. Something 85 or lower. I prefer an adjustable length paddle though.
BTW, nice topic thread.

My surgeon told me a tear this long, there is no amount of exercise that will heal this up because the bone spur caused the tear in the first place "so the bone spur has got to go". Surgery is the only way since left un-repaired, the tear will eventually tear all the way through my rotator.
On another note, just after lunch the Physical Therapy department called me and my first session of PT is scheduled for Friday, March 31st (two days after surgery) and the first session is going to last one hour. I don't have a time yet but I'm hoping for the 10:00 am time slot. And as an added bonus, the physical therapist who worked with me on my left shoulder 15 years ago, he will working with me again on my right shoulder.
I already know what he will expect from me in PT and he already knows I'll give him what he expects from me in PT. The last time I was with him was 15 years ago. I did 3 months of PT work in 3 weeks of time. My plan is to do the exact same thing this time around. I'll see if the last 15 years has slowed me down any. My primary goal is to be taking my sup on it's first leisurely flat water cruise of 2017 on June 1st. My secondary goal is to be sup surfing on August 1st........or before.

Saw my orthopedic surgeon this morning at my 10:00 am appointment time. Went over the entire procedure and I went with the long cut (open surgery) instead of arthroscopic surgery. This way my surgeon can see the entire joint. My MRI showed a tear which is three quarters through the rotator. The tear is not where it is attached to the bone so that is a bit of good news. My bone x-ray showed the tear was caused by a hooked bone spur at the end of my clavicle which started the tear and once the tear started tearing, it just kept tearing to where it is now.
So the spur will be shaved off and the rotator will be repaired. I did ask about using my sup for leisurely flat water cruising and was told that would be okay around June 1st. I then asked about sup surfing waves and my surgeon said "maybe" by August 1st,but no guarantee for that date. I'm "guessing" he will want to see me during the last week of July and check the shoulder out with various exercises to see whether the shoulder can handle this type of activity.
My surgery is scheduled for (Wednesday) March 29th. I have to be at the surgery center by 7:00 am and my surgery is schedule to start at 8:30 am. I will be leaving the surgery center with my right arm in some sort of sling. Today my surgeon wrote a prescription (to be taken after surgery) for 3 medications and I will pick them up tonight after 6:00 pm at my local pharmacy.
Looks like I'm all set.
Spring is definitely here where I live in Texas. The high temperature today was 85 degrees F. Our early morning low for Thursday morning will be around 63 degrees F. Right now as I type this post, it is 75 degrees F.
BTW, nice photo.
