Knee Injury

As most of the people who practice any kind of extreme sport you always have the possibility of getting injured and its part of the game, you gotta pay to play. Two weeks ago I came back from France and Tarifa was spoiling us with perfect winds, I kited everyday together with some of the Top PKRA riders and feeling really confortable with my riding landing all my doubles again and doing some more powered tricks till one day in the lagoon while filming for a new movie I broke my meniscus and stretched some of the ligaments in my Knee, I first didn’t really know what was going on but then I realized something went wrong… Alvaro and Ewan, who were at the lagoon filming came to help me and we went straight to the hospital, ones we arrived the doctor said that i only had my ACL a bit stretched and that it was gonna be OK, i already had some bad experiences at the hospital of Tarifa so me and my mom decided to see a specialist that would do a Scan and really see what was going on. When we finally had the results it was a bit worse than what we thought, my meniscus was completely squashed and some of my ligaments were stretched, he directly said that I needed an Operation for it not to hurt anymore because a meniscus can’t really get repaired and they would have to remove some of it.
Now I am back from the surgery, 6 weeks no kiting 😦 that really sucks but I will be back stronger than ever!
