I mentioned another threads I suffered both shoulder dislocation‘s last year. As a result I have a Hal sachs fracture one shoulder and a small fracture in the other.
Surgery was optional but encouraged but I decided to postpone to see how I heal and figure out how much the insurance would cover. But here we are going into the spring season I’m not sure if I wanna risk skiing or not. I’m leaning towards at least trying to see how I feel with the few light passes. I’m thinking maybe the good power vest combined with a wider ski and if I stay at 32mph I might be able to ski this summer. I’m pretty sure this has been discussed before but I couldn’t find the thread.those that have tried the power vest , do you think this will be helpful with my shoulder injury or is this more for back fatigue.

    Yes it will help with your shoulders. Bought mine when coming back from rotator cuff surgery. The guy with a waterski forum on the neighboring lake was also using one for a short time when coming back from a torn bicep.Hear they are in back order now. They are well worth the money.

    LoopSki: YES and YES. Can’t explain why it works but it works. Takes some getting use to but within a couple passes you’ll feel great. My shoulder is shot, I’m 61 years old and was very discouraged about my skiing prospects. After a few sets, this damn vest actually prevented me from risking any further injury. It seems to “keep you in check”. It’s impossible to do anything stupid. Tough to explain but I hope that helps. I know it’s not inexpensive but I really believe it’s worth every dime.

    It definitely works. I've used one for five years to resolve some lower back issues.

    Maybe recheck with your doc or PT once more before letting the boat pull on you!
