    Rib Cage/Abdominal Pain from surfing?

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to sound like a kook...does anyone else get pain in the rib cage/abdominal area from surfing?

    I've had this kind of off and on for the past 1.5 months. Kind of like a soreness/ache in the area, sometimes a bloated feeling

    Does this just come with the territory of surfing?

    Thanks guys

    -Bruce

    If I am catching lots of waves, the band of muscles that go across torso just below rib cage cramp up on pop up.

    You got it from posing into your go pro too much. Seriously how many of the same angle go pro shot can you post on your profile?

    Nip and/or thigh rash is worse.

    I get sore ribs every once in a while...but I don't think it's from surfing so much as it is from sleeping (passing out) in awkward position on a sh!tty mattress.

    Don't be surprised if your chest-bone begins to ail you, as well as arm pain, tennis elbow, "ice cream" headache, shoulder pain, plantar fascist, and sore scroat.

    OP: please also keep your medical inquiry confined to this forum. SI is a house of learned doctors and you're in good hands here. No sense in consulting WebMD or any medical professional for that matter. We also prefer if you have no health insurance policy as that would be way too hard to process.

    Queen mum, you're referring to the muscle group known as the stokealassimus dorsi. It tends to get very tense when wave count is higher, especially barrells. It's a good thing.
