Re: Ram air caught in surf disaster

On the other hand, sometimes they are problematic, although in this case mostly operator mis-judgements. This happened on Friday along Bloubergstrand. The wind was persistently SW, directly onshore, as it often is when the SEaster is not in force. There were a few kiters on the beach, some trying t...

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

Thanks guys I will take my old 2014 Rip Curl E-bomb (5/3) with cut-off short sleeves en cut off pants just below the knees. Hopefully that does it... I mean, end of Jan is more or less the warmest seawater period around Capetown isn't it? http://nl.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Big-Bay/forecasts/latest/s...

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

Thanks a lot for your swift replies guys! This helps a lot.
Hopefully the friendly atmosphere continues when I will be in Capetown over a week or so :D
Guess it will be pretty crowded though, but I definitely look forward to it!

You kite all year round in Brasil and Egypt Toby, but for us from NL/Northern Europe 16 Celsius is pretty okayish! A friend of mine was last year in Capetown and he kited in 4/3 3/2 shorty which is cold, imho..

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

Dear Hugh2, Thanks a lot for further explaining situation around CPT. I will be going there for 2 weeks very soon. If you search for messages which areas to kite best in this area, they are a bit fluffy around the internet. I know.. unfortunately the busiest time of the season. I've kited around the...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

I have been in quite some kiteplaces in the world and the only place I have worn sunglasses is in Cabarete. Not due to the sun but due to the extremely salt water and the splashing in the eye, because of the choppy conditions.. Normally no sunglasses of course due to the lack of good sight when wear...
