I hear you re the kickboard -- when I injured my shoulder, I had the same problem -- I actually wound up either (a) doing kicks on my back, "hugging" the kickboard (heck on the quads!) or (b) lying more "on" the kickboard (so that it wasn't impinging my shoulder or (c) using cut-off swim fins (instead of the expensive shortie fins, I just went and got the regular light blue full-foot fins that like kids wear, and cut the first 1/2 foot of the "fin" off) and then did kicks that way. Flutter on on the back, looking slightly toward the wall you're moving away from is an AMAZING ab workout.
The other thing that I did (ugh) was eggbeaters, and then "dolphin" work (upright flutter) -- although it led to near drowning a few times, it was definitely an ab/leg exerciser :-) (My coach does these workouts with a TEN POUND WEIGHT in each hand. She is an animal.)
