I twisted my knee on Sunday at Berkeley Marina. The wind was about 20 mph and I used the smallest sail they had - 5m2. It was certainly the most challenging conditions I had been out in... pretty new at the sport (uphauling and no foot straps) but loving it.

Anyway at one point I fell backwards and sideways and my foot stayed locked on the board - strange considering I had no foot straps. My knee got badly twisted and is hurting quite badly on the medial side (inside). Might be a torn meniscus or something, but am seeing the doc tomorrow.

Anyone else have a knee injury and how long did it take before you were back on a board? I am sure I could get back up winsurfing tomorrow, but Im worried about falling again and making it even worse.

thanks

I think it is the medial meniscus - see

for lots of details.

I saw the doc yesterday and he doesnt think it is too bad - hope not since I just signed up for an ABK clinic in 3 weeks Smile

best

I had a medial meniscus tear some years ago. Landed wrong on a gym floor and it buckled. The tear was small and I used a Tru-Fit neoprene velcro brace with the hole for the kneecap and stays on the sides. The knee held up fine till after the sailing season(Nov.) and got it fixed.
Good luck
