The Dutch freestyler Rick Jendrusch achieved his best PWA result to date with a 13th place in Fuerteventura this summer. Unfortunately he dislocated his shoulder twice since then and needs to undergo surgery. Actually the first time he dislocated his shoulder was in Sylt last year. This summer it happenend again during a SUP session and 2 months later during a Shove-it Spock at the EFPT DAMX event at his home spot.

“I just came back from the specialist this morning and we checked my MRI scan. The conclusion is that my shoulder is not stabil anymore and I need to do surgery. Actually that’s what I want because now I sail with fear in my mind that it happens again and I can’t go full on. I will have my surgery on 18th of January and I probaly have a recovery time of 6 months to be 100% fit again and on the board. So it will take some time but for me it’s really important as I still want to windsurf all my life and now I’m fit and ready to do a surgery.” (Rick Jendrusch, 30.11.2017)
