Hello spearos,
I strained my lower back about 6 months ago surfing. It hurt quite a bit and and though it doesn't hurt as bad any more it has persisted ever since. I am starting to wonder if the 4kgs on my weight belt may be guilty of stopping it from healing. I'm 36, fit and in great health so it's starting to get to me to not be able to surf any more. I spear a minimum of three times a week, sometimes six. If anybody's had something similar, I'd be stoked to hear about it.
Thanks, Josh

It's a normal thing that happens in varying degrees with different people. In my case it's a pain I can live with. If your situation merits it get a weight harness or a weighted vest. There is someone on this board that makes and sells them, he's in the California section. Or you can make it yourself http://ic_spearguns.tripod.com/
