Surfing is a fun water sport, but it also presents the opportunity for injury. Surfers put their bodies against the force of the waves, which can lead to knee injuries, including issues such as ligament and cartilage tears. Even professional surfers, such as Garrett McNamara wear surfing knee braces to help protect his joints while on the waves. Wearing surfing knee braces may help prevent injury or provide extra support for surfers recovering from prior injuries. Remember, the risk for getting hurt while surfing is always there, as your body may twist unexpectedly from the force of a wave or you can get hit from your board. Repetitive stress injuries from crouching down can also strain the knee joint and lead to pain. That's why our brace coaches recommend these surfing braces and supports -- check them out today!
