I've heard bad stories about back surgeries. Sorry you had to go through that. You must miss the shoreys.

Yeah, love the acceleration into the sand! My disc wasn't so dull and ended up being surgically removed, but at least the pain's gone!!

I don't blame you. I have an enormous amount of respect for Ke Iki's. I have gone over the falls once on a 8 footer here....instead of falling with the lip for 10 feet, I was being accelerated for 10 feet....hit water, immediately sand. Hit pretty hard and just got pinned there by the lip. Yeah, I can still feel that dull pain from the disc in my lower back. I was seeing stars after that one! Haha.

Haha! I agree, maybe I should call it "Boxed In" or something like that. I just can't help but love a clean slabber.
