I cannot recommend this tour to anyone. It is dangerous and not safe at all and it left me with a very sad and bad memory – a severely and permanently injured back. We went on the early morning tour and it was black as in a sack and one of the first surfs was so high and steep and the landing on my back was harder than anything I ever experienced. I completed the tour however but with pains that was beyond what I have ever had before in my life. At the hospital I was diagnosed with a vertebral compression fracture on one of the vertebraes (one inch) which furthermore has caused paralytic symptoms from the nerves involved. I was on sick leave and put on strong painkillers (morfin) for several weeks and still, five months after the tour, I need different painkilling treatments every day to have a reasonable life. The pain affect my life quality and has intruded on my work and social life with friends and family.
Before leaving the shore I signed a paper to ensure that I, among other things, did not have any spinal problems. I didn’t have any problem to sign that as I have always had a very strong back. I have never ever had any problems at all. When the accident happened I was in very good shape, strong and well trained. I have been training for as long as I can remember, so I know my body and its limits – and it has never, ever been my back. Me and my husband are furthermore experienced mountain hikers and used to extreme hardships spending weeks in for example the Nordic wilderness with all what it takes of rough terrain and hard weather conditions.
The service level from the crew at the boat was furthermore nil – or below if that is possible. After the accident had happened, I asked for a glass of water to swallow an aspirin that I had brought, the assistant at the boat gave me the water but threw a rude comment directly in my face like “what are you doing on this boat if you have a bad back”. No one in the crew ever returned to ask how I felt. Of course, that shouldn’t have helped my injured back – but I would have felt that they at least cared a little about their passengers.
