Last weekend I was unlucky enough to break my wrist while windsurfing.
I was planing when I lost control. When the sail hit the water, I was
still in the harness and holding the boom, and I was smashed against
the boom. It was much like hitting a concrete floor. But perhaps it was
the harness hook doing the damage, I can't quite reconstruct what
happened. Anyway, thanks to other helpfull windsurfers I'm safe at home
again, recovering well.
Bad luck, but I guess these things happen. Although in my case lack
of sufficient technical skill was part of the cause.
But untill now I considered inshore windsurfing a safe sport. This
accident, however, made me wonder if the are such things as "common
windsurf injuries". If this is the case, then I am even more curious
about ways to prevent them.
Come on, don't tell me I am the only guy who had to miss part of the
season because of an injury :-( Tell me your stories...
