Re: Best Wireless Anemometer or Weather Station

The new tempest looks cool . I’ve used Davis in the past
Many issues with salt and the temp sensor . Anemometer generally lasts 1 year or so on really exposed sites . Ultrasonic is the future ; I’ve put down for a tempest see how that goes

Re: Kiting alone

Good points from Peter ; I too have been often alone in 20 years of kite and windsurf before it Anyway I have been playing with the fall detection on the Apple Watch . So far and very surprisingly it seems to cope with the forces of being on the water . It’s only triggered on really big wipeouts and...

Re: Missing kitesurfer found after spending night on marshland

I regularly ride these beaches alone in winter. I use my Apple Watch with LTE and that has worked reliably without a hitch for two years now in our conditions . I don’t feel happy without it . And have made several call on and off the water so it works and works well . In addition if you have a mass...

Re: Reasons why Toby should delete Climate Change Threads

Really ? It affects our sport and affect us all! Not talking about it won’t make it any more likely to go away. Everyone here in Northern Europe is talking about how the weather is off and has been for a few years at least. People here have discussed how the trades have gone a little off whack . Man...

Re: New Wetsuit Skunk stink....

+1 for boots they always stink ( I use about dryer now no stink) but we have about 10 wetsuits here . Either Mystic or NP none smell much at all . In fact we keep them in the wardrobe with cloths when not in use . Mystic we have old and new (2019) nothing noticeable there
