I don't lay on my board like a corpse doing the dead man's float. If I'm prone, which is basically all the time, my back is arched with chest up to see the set coming in, ready to move quickly, and for all other times, just in an athletic posture. If that makes me look like a kook, then I don't ever want to look unkookish. This sit on your board all day crap is no different than sitting on an inflatable couch. There's far more stable objects for that at Wal-Mart if you're into that sort of thing.

As exceptionality is the key to survival, be glad that you're different. I personally am glad I'll never be normal.
Again, thank you.

Me too except my neck vertebrae auto-fused by themselves without the surgery. I try to look up a lot less when paddling out and push up a little when I do to use peripheral vision. I sit up when waiting. Anything to avoid looking up and hyper-extending and ~2 hrs. is enough these days. Wish I'd known this a long time ago and was careful. Never seen the paddle air vest so will have to check it out. THX.

Wow. I really appreciate the kind words and support! I will turn off the emotions now as I can't wait to read more thrashings to shredmachines ego.

For me there's nothing better than being on, in, or under the water. Surfing is my favorite, but I also enjoy kayaking, sailing, fishing, and skin diving. They all can be therapeutic. Do you have any buds who also surf?

Slipped rib goes in and out when I duck dive or paddle hard to catch a wave
Twice torn calf I'm told has scar tissue making it prone to future tears
recently broken hand, now with weather predicting aches
minor tweaked shoulder and knee
everything tired from supporting my 220lbs
..my giant wiener that makes it hard to lay flat on my board :-)

I do. Thanks. I try and surf with a bud or at least within eye sight of another surfer. With my head being all foggy if I take a header it could be lights out for me. So I try and surf smart and amongst friends.

Hilarious thread, good perspective from across the spectrum.
I get side and back cramps like a mofo..Like someone said before bananas and coconut water works well.... pickle juice even better.
Tore some ligaments in my ankled getting drilled...so that acts up after a long sesh.
