Metal-less Mickey

I had the metalwork removed from my ankle yesterday. The operation took about 90 minutes and I am now back at home recovering. Hopefully I’ll be dancing and windsurfing again soon but right now my ankle is sore and aching (not surprising really)!

Beam my up Scotty!

Woohooo! I have finally pulled off my first vulcan on a windsurfer (jump, rotate 180 degrees, land sliding backwards and sail away in the new direction). Some tricks only take a few dozen attempts to crack but this one has taken a few hundred attempts (and some heavy crashes amongst them)! Now I just have to learn to do it every time…
