We’ve just had another solid week of perfect conditions at Coconut Bay. It’s been great to see returning faces, and to see them stoked on our sport. The location and conditions just couldn’t be any better for Kiteboarding. The week has been really successful for me in terms of my training, starting to get these new powered moves which will give me a good flighting chance at the Europeans and I also managed to get some good time Windsurfing to mix it up.
But…well, I never thought I’d be writing my second update where I’m currently sitting.
I’m here back at Hewanorra International about to board my flight back to London. After some bad news following an MRI scan of my knee after a heavy crash in June, I’ve decided to take the sensible route and make my appointment this Friday to the Truma and Orthapedics unit in Brighton. The only thing I’ve learnt is I’ve damaged my Lateral Meniscus and I’m not going to be able to deal with my knee like this all year. It could be a hell of alot worse but I should take it seriously at my age. It’s not held my training up much but all the time its this painful, giving way and locking up, I don’t want to do more damage. Going to need surgery and from what I’m told it could be 6 weeks at best and 9-12 weeks worse case of rehab to be back on the water. But until I see the surgeon to give me a physical assessment and go over my MRI I won’t know. I’m hoping I can just brace up with my DonJoy custom brace and carry on..
Anyway, lets see how it goes with the Surgeon, but I hope to get this sorted and be back on the water full power and 100% as soon as possible.
I’d like to give a MASSIVE thankyou to my Sponsors and also CoconutBay Besch Resort and Spa for having me. I hope to be back as soon as possible to finish my projects I had lined up and I hope some of you reading this get the chance to Kiteboard and Coconut Bay.
Forward to my Instagram account for my daily images from the resort.
Once I’m home I’ll upload the content I shot over the past 2 weeks.
