Dexcom G4 and Surfing

I just thought I'd throw out some information for anyone who might be interested in using the G4 while surfing or swimming in the ocean. For me, surfing is really the number one place I'd prefer not to have a low. Even when surfing with friends, you are still mostly alone when you are in the water; well except for the sharks. The G4 has, so far, been kind of a mixed bag when it comes to surfing but here is what I've found. Hopefully it is helpful to someone else.First, the receiver isn't…See More

Hey!

Yeah, still plugging along at a snail's pace with the training. Once or twice a week if possible. Omnipods are hanging in there, literally! The new, smaller pod is a bit more twitchy, but I haven't lost one in a couple sessions now. Would definitely love to meet up at some point. Where's AOJ?

hey,
so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I grew up in Southern California. My home town break was Manhattan Beach. Spent many years in the water there. Really miss it. I'd go out and not touch the beach for 5 sometimes 6 hour stretches. I was never the thrasher kind of surfer, mostly looked for curls and tubes, but there is nothing quite like bein out on the water.
