    Default Injury from surfing

    I have been told getting old sucks, first injury ever and have been skiing or boarding for almost 22 years.
    Don't know what I hit but some how it looks like I hyper extended my elbow Saturday surfing. Yes I screamed to the wife to pick me up, since her and the kids thought I was joking.
    Maybe the board, the water, or debris

    That is definitely the worst wakesurfing injury I have seen so far.

    Ouch!!!

    I don't think your age has anything to do with it....I'm going on 60 this year

    Definety something wrong here - the slow speed of surfing usually doesn't cause injuries.

    Something had to change in your normal routine - can you think what it was?? The Debris maybe??

    Are you surfing the Ohio river?

    Wow, you hit the board or debris is my guess.

    2 summers ago Claudia fell and the board fins hit her lower leg, left a cut and bruise.

    I don't know....Patrick you look like you may be a pretty big dude. If you hit the surfboard I would think you would have come up outta the water knowing it.

    Of course on a good Yeungling day, you might not know it right away

    Man, surfing is dangerous, I'll stick to wakeboarding! But for real though that looks painful.

    Oh wait a minute...who am I to call someone a wus - I forgot something.....

    Just had a friend visit who I have not seen in 30 years - since we were in college together.

    I broke out the slalom ski this weekend.

    Unfortunately, I was able to get up on the 1st try - so I thought I was a hot shot.

    Ended up skiing at 34 MPH on the shortest length of rope.

    I'm so damn sore I'm on my 2nd vacation day.

    It was instant what ever happened, yes the Bud Lights helped after the fact.
