Fit was good and support gave a feeling of comfort. I'm tall and thin and the straps were kind of bunched up on the upper arm so I gave it a 4 in comfort. Overall it was well worth the money. Any way to keep riding is a plus.
Great product. I dislocated my shoulder for the first time a week before vacation. I decided to rush order this so I had some extra support instead of the immobilizing sling. It worked great by reminding me to not move my shoulder but also provided the extra support needed to scuba dive, etc...
This is the best thing I've ever bought. This shoulder brace keep my shoulder in place. I have no Idea what I did to my shoulder cuz I don't have health insurance but this definitely helped. When I ride I can't even notice it when I ride.
This brace is not said to be water-proof or resistant. It is made of a Breathable air mesh neoprene style material so water should not effect the brace too much. EVS does not give any indication this would work specifically for surfing but they do say this brace to be suitable for all sports activities.
This is more for rotators cuff type injuries. when I injured mine (a grade 3 separation) I purposed a couple of different shoulder braces to my physical therapist and they said these type of braces won't offer much protection or support. They showed me ways to use tape instead, which worked. The best answer to your question is to ask your physical therapist what they suggest.
