I've recently had a mastectomy and am hoping to return to watersports (canoe and kayak) soon. I'm an instructor so protecting my chest area and side (usually where there is very little padding in a buoyancy aid) when I do rescues in particular is something I'm thinking about. Have you had any luck with any adapting you've done for your windsurfing?
I was wondering if there is anyone else who has returned to watersports requiring buoyancy aids/impact vests after treatment. I'm a windsurfer and just starting to get back on the water. My ribs and boob is painful in places (I've had the whole shebang of treatment and a silicone implant) and my buoyancy aid is flat on the inside so not very ergonomically cushioned if I fall on it. I'm thinking of adapting one, but wondered if anyone else has experience of this and has any suggestions?
