    Out of Commision

    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...

    ****, man, get well soon!

    small waves are sooo dangerous it's not even funny. we take so many more risks in small stuff than we would in larger surf. way more injuries (to board & rider) happen in sub-6ft surf it's not even funny...

    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.
