Hi Reuben Million Thx!!! When I fall off the foil I am used to still hold the wing, probably comes from windsurfing time when falling holding the boom, actually in the videos you seem to do the same 🙂 So how do you cover your head then jeje? Regards Ramon

Regarding the shoulders, backs, knees. I am super thankful to Sup as it gave me back the opportunity to be on the water and feeling really great. I had shoulder problems, lower back problems and broken cross ligament and Sup is just great reinforcing all the muscles. Regarding shoulders at the beginning I had pain and the doctors said that maybe operation was needed. I did not operated and following solved the problem: correct paddle length, correct blade size better small then large, flex shaft and physiotherapist helped me also a lot with one exercise which is opening chest and… Read more »

I get lower back pain when I paddle a lot , I sup surf and paddle in goofy so my problem is lower left side of my back . Yoga helps lessen the pain but I know what the problem is – my glutes are not strong and my lower back compensate for the work my glutes should be doing . A few good exercises that help me are squats , lunges and ab exercises . Also hip flexors are overlooked , so hip flexor exercises are good too as they tighten due to the posture – always bending at… Read more »
