No point wearing one if you'll just get tossed in the shore-break, or die of hypothermia as you try to swim in.
The guys that fish your body out will apreciate it. Give just a bit of thought to them, as well as your family. I'm sure the latter does not want to wait 7 days for your corpse to float up, or even have to burry an empty casket.
Matteo, you always crack me up!
I don't think you even listened to anything I said, because you are always so eager to disagree with someone...anyone.
I've swum in from at least 2km out on an outgoing tide, when my kite went bye bye, due to gear failure.
I was not sure if I could swim that far when this happened to me, but as they say there was nothing to it but to do it.
A life vest might have helped me bob around out there, but only would have impeded my progress against the current.
If it makes you feel any better, I'll definitely choose to use a pfd whenever I find myself using my Liquid Force fish to hit sliders in flat water, especially if it's sweet water....
