Somebody stop me

Postby friggin old guy » Fri Aug 31, 2012 4:32 pm

ok, it's been almost 4 weeks since I ripped my hamstring. Doctor was impressed this week by my recovery so far "A+" in terms of regained strength and mobility. He had initially forecasted it would be at least 6-8 weeks (up to 12 worst case) before I could get back to kiting, but I think a routine of high protein, really good rehab exercises and especially daily hours of flatwater SUP paddling greatly accelerated the healing process.

But.....the recommendation was still that I lay off for one more week before kiting again, especially in the waves.....but........South Swell.......I......don't know......if I can be .......sensible.......and not stupid.......

should lay off for one more week before I go again......but.......south swell......can't stop thinking about it.........arhgggggg

Somebody stop me.....was offered to go on a sailboat race tmrw.....more practical.....but.......but.......fun factor not comparable........

Go on, tell me I'm an idiot. Please. Stop me. Need intervention.........tie me up and put me on the boat.......

Appreciate your health and make the most of it you lucky buggers.......

Don't forget to put an extension on your paddle so you can beat kiters from a distance if they dare cutting you off.

SATURDAY - Healthy SSW groundswell builds further and peaks. Better breaks are running chest-head high+ with sets up to 2-3'+ overhead for South swell focal points.

WEATHER/WIND - Light/variable wind early with WNW/NW flow 6-10kts+ in the afternoon.
