Back In The Water

For the past year and a half I have been recovering from ACL surgery waiting for the day when my knee would be healthy enough so I could surf again. Well, today my knee felt pretty good and the ACL should be completely healed by now, so I decided it was time to test it out.

I had been watching the surf reports all winter, and every time a swell came through it was always just a little bit too big or too cold for me to really want to head out for my “return” session. But today the weather and waves were in my favor. It was sunny and in the low 40’s with clean waist high waves. I only managed three waves, but they felt great (and the knee held together).
