Bodyboarding on recovery from injury

I went to bodyboarding today. I really want to surf but I'm still on recovery from my knee injury.I go see new chiropractic 3 times a week and it's getting better and the doctor said if I feel my knee is O.K. ,I can start bodyboarding then that helps my feeling better.So I started swimming in ocean and now started bodyboarding. The fact that really help my feeling much much better.And I think I can learn something from bodyboarding too.I really appreciate everyone trying to help me and my best friend Jeff take me back in the water finally.
I need ocean, I love ocean and ocean gives me a lot of things so I want to do good stuff for ocean.
Yes,we need to keep ocean clean!

Hitachi Power Planer Shaper's full custom.

Today,my best friend took me to San Diego
and we went to Mitch's Surf Shop
and I bought a brand new Hitachi power planer.
It's custom for surfboard shaper.
The mechanism that controls the cutting depth has been modified to make a full cut with only a quarter turn of the knob.
The new features include a modified rear handle
two way pass clearance
precision depth adjustment mechanism (sealed)
20' cord
Exhaust Attachment
and improved sealed bearings for more power.
And I put base extension.
Base extension to extend the base length of a hitachi surfboard shaping planer.
The stock base length is about 6"-3/8" .
The extension is about 9".
The longer footprint and heavier solid 6061 aluminum base improve the performance of the planer.
Pricision CNC machined.
The increased weight makes kickback minimal when you hit stringers.
The increased footprint length makes the planer track more evenly.
After that we went to do paipoboarding at Seaside Reef.
I haven't been in ocean for over two month.
So I had amazing time.
I love ocean.
I'm charged!
Today was good day.
Thanks Jeff!
