I surfed for 20 minutes with the thruster fin setup. First impression is less drag. I caught waves earlier than I should have, and stayed in the pocket on mush that should have required some pumping, but didn't.
I'll put the fins on Jacky's 9'6 PSH tomorrow. She can test them until I recover.
The rib pain went away on Thursday. But now my ribs click and pop all day long. Our best guess is I tore rib cartilage. I experienced some burning in my chest after today's short session. Not the smartest thing I've done, but I just don't feel good unless I get my weekend dose of salt water. The sea makes everything better, mind and body.
