Hi Roger
I am in Floripa for Christmas / New year and it's my last day here (staying with my Brazilian wife from here- we met in London where I come from). I want to learn how to surf, have a skateboarding background, and tried surfing once before in Cornwall UK 12 years ago. This holiday I tried once but I have an unstable right shoulder which got dislocated (again) and prevented me from enjoying the surfing experience. I would like to try again next time and get some advice from experienced surfers on how to best deal with my shoulder problems. Do I need an operation, or do I need to build more upper body strength? Ideally I want to come back to Floripa and get a surfing instructor who can guide me through the surfing experience safely. Your advice will be much appreciated.
