Originally posted by: SurferMic ^^^ heavy duty black trash bag with duct tape will work, did it years ago broken wrist. you have to paddle with one arm which is brutal (slow) in Overhead sets, a then learn a tripod like pop-ups (AKA Bethany H. style).

How long until you were able to surf once the cast came off? Casts off, but not healed (and in a brace) .... and I'm tweakin at all the potential. (only cane season I missed due to injury was 2013 (which wasnt really a cane season Already thinking of gorilla taping the hell out of my brace if need be

^^Cast Off???, ha...didn't even wait, surfed with cast on BUT I only had a scaphoid fracture of the wrist from overshooting a double on my YZ250 and landing in the flats. Hurricane swell at the Boardwalk was too good to pass on. My advice is get a bigger board...you will need the extra stability for the tripod standup, Use your good arm ONLY...When Popping up I remember placing good hand in center of the board and getting to my knees while continuing to stand...once you are up...surf as normal..Bailing/Falling...tuck that bad wrist in tight to your body...I did this many times and had no effect on healing..Good luck, shave before taping..

Ha, yeah, I would feel MUCH better about surfing with the cast on than the brace they gave me...I've had minor fractures on this one before (snowboarding) but only enough to require a brace. Unfortunately my "good" arm is my "bad arm" I may be the least ambidexterous person on earth.... Selfishly hoping for onshores for a few more weeks.... I did have a 6-5 step-up made last fall that unfortunately has yest to see wax... we'll see

^^ You can do it, a cast is more solid but as long as you do not use your bad arm for ANYTHING you will be fine...find a Funshape!! it will be so much easier to tripod stand up with a board that has decent nose foam...6'8"-7'6" Funshape would be perfect...find one, keep the step up board in the house, you need a Full Round Thick nose...see you in the water...now back to the regular Hurricane Hype thread (sorry for the swerve).

Plan B is trying to hold off moving to an "ol man" board as long as possible ;-)

Goofing off on an "ol man" board in little waves is how I hurt myself in the first place...
