Ankle brace/AFO for surfing

Gary Seaman

Hi All

Second question for the day. I have a patient late 30s very good surfer,
fracture his talar dome and fibular whilst surfing. Current whilst surfing
he uses a lace up figure 8 brace but this does not provide enough support.
He is quiet and intelligent person and thinks that a longer brace would be
more beneficial and would like the ankle to help in neutral as much as
possible. Any suggests or experience with this type of brace and surfing?
Much appreciated.

Kind regards
