SUP General / Major hamstring Pull, I hate This!
« on: January 02, 2020, 10:25:02 AM »
I had a few small strains in my hamstrings when I first started SUSing. I now regularly stretch and use a roller on my gluts and stretch before going out on the water. Due to family, holidays and cold, I did not do any stretching and rushed out for a sunset sesh. 2nd wave loud pop! I had to crawl to shore and could not put any weight on it only crutches.

Kept it up and iced for 2 days. Now I can put pressure on my leg and limp around. It is super black and blue. I read that if it is torn it can take months to heal...........so bummed.

Does anyone have experience with this type of injury? Will it ever fully heal? To add insult to injury (literally) my new Sunova Style arrives today.

Technique / Time to get out and back to line-up
« on: July 07, 2019, 05:52:20 PM »
I work, and thus when on the water I milk every bit of each wave to the bitter end. All of the cool people catch a wave and then do a quick turn when the 1st section finishes, remain standing and head back out to the line-up. Any general rules for when to bail?

Also, since I am goofy and live in California I surf back side 92% of the time and find it much harder to turn back out on backside than frontside.

Gear Talk / Surf Paddle Flutter
« on: January 01, 2019, 02:22:41 PM »
I have been an avid Werner fan starting with the motto and then the Rip Stick when I git serious about SUP Surfing. I have am always working on my stroke. I lent my Rip Stick to my daughter and used my Nitro for the first time in awhile. I realized that when I angle the Rip Stick toward the board it has flutter and is hard to hold in a straight line compared to the Nitro which is more narrow and stiff on edges.

So I am looking around for a Surf Paddle that is short and wide fior quick strokes yet stiffer edges so I can steer board by angling the paddle.

Am looking at the black project surge and Quick Blade.

Anyone else have the same flutter issue? Any paddle recommendations? I am 210lbs and use the 89.

Thanks

SUP General / Daily Cold Showers for Health
« on: October 05, 2017, 11:30:00 PM »
i have been hearing people talk about the health benefits of taking a cold shower daily.

"The supposed benefits are improved immunity and circulation, stress relief, better mood, and relief of muscle soreness."

i had to laugh as i jump into cold water almost daily! after a few hours on the water i am very mellow and in a better mood, not to sure about the sore muscle part, ha!
