Windsurfing in June
- Strong winds – 30-40 knots WNW
- Big(ish) Waves – 3-4 foot messy surf
- New sail – 5m Gun Transwave
- New Harness – Gun Trion
- An Hour or so to spare
All adds up to big fun and sore ribs!
All felt fine with the new kit and I was well powered up and flying along through the whitewater. A Nice gybe out the back and flying back in skimming across the choppy sea. Under control but having fun. Or at least i thought I was under control until I had a big crash and slammed my ribs into my fast at full speed. Winded and in pain for a while but continued for about half an hour or so.
I’m in a fair bit of pain today though. I went for a swim this morning but simply couldn’t do it. I managed 4 lengths then gave up and sat in the sauna for half an hour. The pain hasn’t eased at all through the day either. Just breathing hurts and breathing deeply more than hurts. I’m not sure what I’ll do for the weekend as I’m supposed to be racing in another Quadrathlon. Hopefully it’s just bruising and will have eased up by then.
