Few years back was trying an aerial when the nose of my board hit me under the arm in my rib cage. Broke two ribs and bruised my lung....carried on surfing for half an hour! only realised when it came to peeling my suit off afterwards, lost the support and couldn't breath instantly...bad times! Hope you get in at the weekend on the SE'ly even tho its not looking classic!

i broke 4 ribs in margs years ago on a wipe out and got washed up in bits gasping for breath and 2 in the canary islands but that was due to dancing to rod stuart with the missus on a table showing off

Broken nose eh? Fractured cheekbone is it, suck it up you big girl, at least you'll be less of a crybaby with only one tear duct..... Of course I'm joking, looks freakin' horrible fella. Still, gotta be better than the nose of your board up the bum ala Tom Carrol. Now they're some stitches i don't fancy. Get well soon, peace.

I remember back in Nam I was surfing whilst on RandR and I got attacked by a tiger shark and then all these box jellyfish swam into the wound and started stinging me from the inside out and then as I crawled out of the water i tripped a mine which fuckin hurt and to top it all off this VC geezer who's bitch i'd been banging twated me in the face with a plank of wood with a rusty nail in it..... I'm ok now though!

ow dude i know how u feel i was out for 4 months with an intenseley painfull knee injury i was in my bed for 2 of those months so 5 weeks is nout !!!!!!!!

Meunchkkleeerrr III's avatar

Meunchkkleeerrr III Jan 29, 2009 Rating: -2

oh mate that sucks balls but 5 weeks is nowt and nothing permanent right? jsut remember its always harder to get back in after something like that but you msut try and put it behind you otherwise you will double guess yourself loads. I was in morrocco, 2nd day out and got my fin embedded above my right ear about 2 inches from my eye, had to have stitches all up my ear and head (no Anaesthetic) but went back in tentatively after 3 days - felt like crap for about 1 month in the water but you get over it! - good luck old boy!
