I was out for 5 weeks (started kiting again after 3 weeks...just cruising, that probably also derailed the healing time ), this was a costal cartilage fracture, the lighter bone part, which is less painful than a regular rib fracture.
Take it easy for the first few weeks, no riding
Hmmm....thanks for that. Guess it could be worse.
I think I'll be buying a seat harness too once I get back on the water until I feel the rib has healed completely....
I guess it could happen with any harnes, and it's not particularly anything to do with it being a Mystic Firestarter? Have to say though, I've not been entirely happy with the harness in comfort terms. Also find the webbing is very hard to tighten properly compared to my friends Dakine Pyro.
