Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Here's my question for you guys/gals who are fully recovered or nearly so from resurfacing: can you ever get back to a smooth and quick and pain-free "pop up" that is so critical for surfing??? Staggering to my feet isn't my vision of getting back into surfing.

I am 6 months past unsuccessful FAI surgery due to moderate   arthritis in my right hip, and Hip Resurfacing appears to be my next stop on the surgery train. 45 yrs old, fit, and haven't surfed in a year due to pain. Surfing is far and away the thing I most want to return to, but after getting sold a bill of goods by my FAI surgeon, I REALLY want to know what to expect going forward.

Any valid/truthful feedback would be very much appreciated!

I am 9 months out and have tried to surf  2-3 days a week for a little over a month now.  Still can't "pop up" but I am getting closer, some days more than others. I'm riding a 10 footer a san onofre and have had 2-3 "Real" waves even though I was S - L - O - W   getting to my feet.....  Not there yet, but still making progress.  It's a little better every couple weeks so......sooner or later

hi hiphurts , i would say that if you have a successfull resurfacement after you have recovered there should be no reason at all that you won/t be able to surf , the joint will certainly be capable of it but the muscles etc may take a bit more time to supple up , obviously the more pt you can do to help the situation the better everthing will be ,

if you look at your situation now ,you said you hav/nt been able to surf because of pain etc, once the hip is sorted out and pain free you will be back to where you where before and surfing will be no problem,

i don/t think jumping to your feet puts very much demand at all on your hip joint at all ,so from my experiance i would get your hip sorted out and return to what you enjoy doing as quick as you can,

i make boards for a hobby   http://www.seawindsurf.blogspot.com    , take care . pete

Thanks for the reply guys I appreciate it! 3 weeks out from resurfacing and I'm psyched....i bodysurfed the Hurricane Bill swell here on the East Coast but there's no substitute for being on a board!
