However, there was no wind. The forecast was for around 10 knots and then only at 2pm. There was less wind than that, so we met for a coffee and chat about skills and equipment for the upcoming Across The Bay to Conquer Cancer kitesurfing downwinder at the Sandy Beach Kiosk.
|Chatting about gear and skills over coffee
We also discussed equipment and food to take on the downwinder including:
- PFDs (Type 1 inflatable and Type 2 with some storage pockets and drink bladder holder)
- EPIRBs (PLBs) and Spot tracking devices
- A whistle
- Water - in a drink bladder
- Power gels in a small squeeze bottle for energy boosts - available from cycling shops
