Just living with it. Its eased up a little bit. Did a surf trip in early November and scored overhead to double overhead surf for 8 days. The lack of paddling strength in my right arm and the soreness after the first two days really limited my enjoyment of some epic conditions the rest of the trip.

Certain motions or working on something above my head will trigger it and then it will hurt for days. Unfortunately paddling a surfboard is one of those triggers. Since I haven't surfed much in the past 6 weeks since my trip and haven't done anything else to aggravate it its been ok.
Building wave pools is just being desperate, hoping to make surfing something it's not. Surfing isn't done in a pool. Surfing's done in the ocean. I mean, are you fooking really going to travel to Kansas to surf the world's best wave pool? Bobby Martinez

For all the entreating posts!

Remember, if reaching overhead don't reach behind the plane of your ear. Work in front of your face, and make sure your palms are rotated inwards as much as possible.
