Sandpaper edges of TT?

I am thinking about sandpapering the edges of my Trax HRD to better be able to grab it, as there are some smaller cracks and uneven spots, and I don't want to cut myself. Now I am a little in doubt if it is ok to do this, and if I might worsen the boards attributes? The rails are important for the p...

Re: Fisherhaven / Bot River Lagoon

I had the privilege of sharing this spot with my man Rynhardt that day and it was awesome!
Big stoke, breuw, to put it that way.

The drive from Cape Town is beautiful in itself. It is 1,5 hours from Blaauwberg though.

Re: Help me understand Cape Town wind on the basis of this Windguru forecast

Gear is packed, and I found place for a 15. Probably will carry it across the globe and not use it, but the possibility is there. If I walk to the beach, can I leave my pump while being out, or is that a high risk item too? If I kite until 19.30, and then walk home a few 100 m in Sunset beach in th...

Re: Help me understand Cape Town wind on the basis of this Windguru forecast

Awesome tips, thanks. What was meant by Dolphin beach being safer? I thought it would be easiest to just walk to the beach as I will stay in Sunset. In regard to the shuttle, that sounds great. How do you pay? I have found the Witsands close to Infanta, but not the one in the Cape. Where is it locat...

Re: T-Rex Kiteboarding

I absolutely love it!
How much did you have to pay for that suit?

What about safety? Could you swim in that thing in case of for instance a line break?

Re: at 57°F (14°C) water temperature you would choose 5/4 or 4/3 wetsuit?

I would say it is smart to be equipped for the worst case scenario. If it is deep, sideshore, or there are other factors involved where you might spend longer time in the water, that is what you want to be prepared for. In Sardinia, you probably look at 10-15 degrees air, 14 degrees water, and a 4/3...

Re: Help me understand Cape Town wind on the basis of this Windguru forecast

botrivier ? flat inside ! bait outside! Do the sharks go inside too? I don't use windguru, but windfinder for table view you can add at least 5 knots onto the normal forecast when S to SE. And 10knots at sunset. SW and NW is generally accurate, and sometimes even less than predicted. Thursday and F...
