    Sorry to hear that Fan. Go see Dr Lawrence Kohan (99 Spring St Bondi Jn)...that sure sounds like ol' Uncle Arthur to me (forgive the prose; I mean arthritis). He did mine and a bunch of triathletes I know, he's done 1000s and he's one of the pioneers of BHR and joint resurfacing in Oz. He recently received his PhD in correct alignment indication for BHR candidates. Many of these artharoplasties have failed and principally because the joint alignment was all wrong.

    Yeah rugby and other hard impact sports can leave their mark on your joints when you get older, that's for sure. I won't let my boy play rugby or league, he plays soccer now. Most of my friends that played soccer were still good runners in their older years and didn't seem to have any joint problems.
    I wont let my two sons play rugby either. One does trampolining and parcor and the other does MMA. If I had my time over I would have just surfed and left the rugby to the meat heads...but unfortunately I was one of them.

      Fan, I should have said that a bit differently, what I meant was: of the BHR failures, many of them were due to incorrect alignment. I believe the failure rate is actually low though there was a particular brand prosthesis that was causing reactions and sickness because of the materials used.

          Hi Andreas,

          still the following error message: "hamburger4master has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages".

          Try this: At My Settings>My Account>General Settings>Messaging and Notifications---> Check Receive Email From Other Members. I wonder if that's what you did...

          Try again and let me know.

          Best,

          Oscar

              This seems to have turned into the bad hip thread, i was researching quad fins for my 6'8" dom! but i have to throw in my 2 cents worth, i had a Birmingham replacement 8 years ago, after not being able to sit on my board without pain, and as Slowman stated, getting up was a mission. Any surfer with dodgy hips, go and do it, my right hip is perfect, the metal one, and it relieved the pain in my left hip and both knees! I rarely feel any discomfort, sometimes after a long walk i do, but surfing is fantastic, no restriction or un natural feeling. I am 54 and still doing turns on my 6'8" that i am very happy with. It is my winter board for real waves and wearing a wetsuit. I am still very tempted to get a potatoe family board for summer though. Still havent tried my Dom as a quad but i will. Good news today on new stem cell and glue treatment to repair cartiledge in bad knees.

                Oscar i think you'll be great on the 604. keep in mind that you can always go smaller if you improve rapidly but it is best to have a board that will suit your ability at the start and will help you improve quickly.

                Cheers!
