Much has been stated above. I want to encourage you to get MANY opinions! Almost 60 years ago I was diagnosed with degenerative lower disks, and have been told to have operations at least 3 times. However, with appropriate constant exercises I have been involved with hockey, skiing, water skiing, windsurfing and kiting.njrider wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 4:31 amHi everyone. So let me give you a quick setup - My last ride was Oct of last year and I landed for the first time, a Raily to blind - stoked and a great way to end the season. Fast forward 4 months and I'm a near cripple thanks to extensive degeneration of my spine that I guess was just waiting for the right time to show up 47 years old. So all in all, I'm stoked to be alive but heartbroken to be forced to give up this beautiful sport.
My only shred of hope is that someday I can try foiling as I'm guessing that it is lower impact on the body? If this is in fact true, can any foilers out their give me some tips on brands of kites and foils that will be the least punishing to learn on.
For now kiteboarding comrades, ride like it's your last time. PEACE
