RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &

I couldn't really say whether the exercises you mention are safe to do or not. But I think they aren't because of the intensity of the motions even if it's in water. Your body can be easily fatigued whereas with stretching and core work, you have better control over what you are doing. I especially think you are getting risky by messing around with s surfboard... too many factors you can't control. As I mentioned before, my results with swimming weren't good and I developed inflammation immediately a day afterward in my groin and adductor. But having said all that, if it's working for you, then it's probably ok.

All I will tell you is that I was doing quite well when I followed the core work and stretching to what was designed... when I strayed away from what the PT told me even slightly, I had problems.
