Re: Wear on surf bootie sole

I've worn wet shoes for over 25 years and haven't suffered from what you describe. Yes I get some sharp shell cuts, but it's usually the pattern that wears so much that they become slippery.

You did a jump about every 45 seconds for 124 times. With an average of 10.48m/jump

Re: Where to kite Mid Feb 2018

Cape Town without a doubt.
Tons to do if not windy or you need a rest. Hire a car.
Try Langebaan for a few days, nice bit of flat water and nice place to unwind.

Went to Costa Rica. blew like f***! way too windy for me. Very remote location.
