High brace in surf.

Posted by Craig Robinson on Oct 28, 2004

Hi All, I participated in a surf negotiation course on the weekend. Waves were 3-4 feet with a 10 knot wind. My CH17 was great and had a lot of fun punching through the waves(must seal those hatches). Our instructor explained that incorrect bracing technique could dislocate a shoulder. He was right, one ot the other guys braced with his elbows too high and out of the socket it came. Cheers
