"Surf Lash" - 2009/07/13 14:50 Is it possible to get whip lash on your neck from surfing? I experienced some neck pain from the last trip I surfed, kind of like a whip lash feeling. The waves were really choppy that day but I decided to go out anyways. I had fun, but my neck was feeling it bad. Any one else experience or have heard of anything like this? It was new to me... and hopefully it won't happen again... Of course I do remember that head banging does come with a price the first couple shows, lol!!

Re:"Surf Lash" - 2009/07/14 13:41 hmmm whiplash at westport huh? well i know surfing westhaven takes a toll on anyone with how many waves are coming in one after the other, its crazy sometimes. I know i used to have a problem with my wetsuit digging into my neck from turning my head to much but never whiplash unless i took some beatings...i'm guessing it might be the motion of looking up when your paddling over waves???

Re:"Surf Lash" - 2009/07/14 14:00 Yeah, I think you are right, the motion, the amount of waves, the wind, the whole dang combo... it just ate my neck up, I am a thin person, tough but I get tossed around easily, I will be back though...

Re:"Surf Lash" - 2009/07/15 00:47 Westhaven takes some getting used to thats for sure. The worst is those waves the come in at an angle! its like a washing machine out there sometimes

Re:"Surf Lash" - 2009/07/21 14:55 lol, i'm disappointed, i thought "surf lash" may have been something a little more risque than a sore neck.

centerrock, there may be a problem with your neck rather than your surfing style or the surf itself. best to see a professional about your neck.
