Hi Crew, recently (6 weeks) prone surfing had a partial shoulder dislocation.
Working with physio doing all the exercises etc.
Windsurfing pal had heard great benefits from SUP paddling for recovery, sounds a good idea.
I'm 60 and ready for a new surfing tact.
Thinking a new inclusion in the quiver justified for rehab.
Thoughts....

What does your physio say. He's the professional charged with your recovery.

H Mike I think your on the money .I have shoulder Damage and I think that sub strengths muses in your shoulder that help compensate for the weaker ones.

I would make sure you use good technique and get a paddle shaft that isn't too stiff--(aka kenalu xtuf). I had shoulder pain until I worked on my technique, which keeps your shoulder from extending too far.
