    i had no idea you could get shin splints from surfing. always thought that was more of a long distance running problem.

    Little Dune what'd you have hip surgery for at your young age?

    Track coach here. I would say you have sore shins, not shin splints. Shin splints come from repetitive pounding with bad shoes and bad form on hard surfaces. You are probably walking, running, surfing differently to compensate for hip surgery. Try sitting on your heals with your knees in front of you to stretch your shins, or push against a wall with your toes folded back. Good luck!

    Good article from WebMD: Maybe a few months to heal.

    Shin splints are usually caused by impacting a very hard surface. Epoxy board? Mosh Pit? Maybe get a foamie board during recovery. Never had shin splints, but friends who were fellow distance runners said they really sucked. Good luck and speedy recovery man.
