This past weekend I had an absolute blast. I was lucky enough to join a good sized group out at a lake a couple hours away in Napa. We went wake surfing (where you ride the wave behind a boat on a board that's a bit of a cross between a wake board and a surf board), cliff jumping and basically had an all around blast all day out on the lake.
I am very much looking forward to getting back out there on a regular basis to find some even higher cliffs and to get some more practice on the wake board. But for this post I wanted to talk a little about an injury sustained from my first attempt on the board. As I was failing miserably at getting my feet set on the board, I was jolted when the boat accelerated forward without me being set firmly. My arm was the only thing that took all the force and I instantaneously felt some pretty sharp pain in my left shoulder. My excitement of the day allowed me to ignore the pain and I continued to play around on the board and jump off the cliffs a few times. But by that night my shoulder hurt so badly that I couldn't raise it up more than a few inches. Not going to lie, I was pretty damn scared.
