Back in the Water After 3.5 Weeks Out

Finally made it back into the water after three and a half weeks out with the knee injury. Surfed Sarge's and GDubs in small, inconsistent mid-period swell, waves no bigger than waist/chest at the biggest. The weather was cooperating with light to calm winds out of the south for most of the session, keeping the sea surface glassy and smooth before switching to the normal southwest flow near the end which tended to sloppen things up a bit. The surf wasn't great but the crowd was very small, only three out at each location. The knee fared well and the only thing I had to worry about was keeping my legs pinched together during wipeouts to keep the knee stable and from flopping around. I was glad there wasn't much energy in the water cuz even the couple minor thrashings I took made the knee unhappy. But after two hours we were feeling pretty good. However, the next day Senor Knee was aggravated and sore. He's taking longer to rebound than I thought he would.
