I've gone out alone and had some close calls. I like to check a weather report before going out (pilot training), wear a helmet, and carry a cell phone, and will be getting a small Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) (there's a new one out about the size of a box of dental floss). I try to use a little more safety margin.

I usually go out a fair way too but always upwind of some where safe enough to land whether it is by kiting there or self rescuing, rarely in off shore conditions and if so I let the missus know or I have made a plan and let mates know.

Check your gear, especially your lines and have a good drink of water before you go, just incase.

Have fun, I know I do!

cheers,

Robbie :D





Good drink of water! That's not the Darwinian I know. Lol! Yeh plenty of sessions alone or just my bro and I. But been at it a while wouldn't recommend it for those only a couple do years in. Shit happens hey.

I used to ride mainly alone. Not as often any more.
Really enjoy having friends around, meeting at the spot, being able to give or get a little help if needed. Crowds rarely a factor where I am.

Also still enjoy a good session alone from time to time, in reasonable conditions.
