That's awesome. The stuff you guys can do/see on foils is pretty incredible. Hope that guy made it back - Robben is miles out there.Hugh2 wrote: ↑Fri Feb 07, 2020 8:31 pmSorry to hear Witsand was no good, Blackened, we had a similar experience a week or so ago.
Today was very good for us. My friend Tim had brought his foil so we got to Dolphin around 9 and he rode there on a variety of Kauber kites he got delivered here from Germany. While others were out on 11 and 12m kites, he was able to foil with a 5m. After that Tim on 9m and surfboard and Ken on 11m and TT did a little downwinder to Kite Beach, followed by lunch and a kite shop crawl. Around 3 we set off on a downwinder from Kite beach, me added on 9m and surfboard. We hit a light patch around Eerstesteen beach and had to wait it out, and another further along, but eventually made it to Holbaai. Along the way we had some cool animal encounters, including a pack of a dozen seals in Big Bay who were very curious about us, and later a massive feeding frenzy of dolphins and seals some way out. I rode out to them, joined by another guy on a pink Fone, I think Bandit, who then proceeded to ride all the way over to Robben Island. I could barely make out his kite at the end, I'm just glad he did not have an incident, because he would have died out there, but he finally rode back in to Haakgat. I'm a little surprised at the wind direction shown below, it felt unusual in being far more south than usual. When we got back around 6:30 Bloubergstrand was alive with kites, but we were too worn out for a final sunset session.
