Re: Front shoulder pain.

Thanks for the concern, guys, but physio told me over 4 years ago there was nothing he could do. I still stretch, but range of movement is definitely diminishing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Current Australian market value has 4 sheets worth a set wave at Outside Corner

Re: Where did you surf today ?
