Over my years of surfing I have aquired a few scars and miscellaneous injuries. Broken nose with fin slash, board hit me in face. Fin slash to top of head ( was winter didn't know was cut) though I was ok till I felt warm blood running down face had already paddled back out. Won't bore you with all point is non-surfers think surfing is a hippie/sissy thing. I also brave flooding condition to storm surf.
