    Well,Its looking like I won't be getting some waves for awhile.Monday night I was surfing with a friend and I broke 4 ribs and damaged some air saks in my lungs.The best time of the year is coming and I'm sidelined.

    Heal up man... Could always be worse. Get healthy first and then worry about charging it.

    damn son. Sounds like there are consequences to chest high beach breaks? I may just have to pretend I never heard this...

    Got some pain,Wasn't even that big.My boards nose got embedded and the board was sticking straight up out of the water.My back landed on my tail which happens to be a fish.Broke the nose of my board right off.Just a really freaky thing.

    That's pretty gnarly. Definitely not something I'm thinking about when surfing beach breaks, but it goes to show that anything can happen. Here's to a speedy recovery.

    Sorry to hear. Agreed that it's always the small stuff that causes injuries. Here's to a quick recovery. Feel better, bro.

    Tore my LcL the other month in waist high beachbreak trying to stand up on a boogie board. Still not all together and will have to wear a brace when I surf for a while. Yes, playing around in beachbreak slop can be very hazardous to your health.
