I crashed last year in my short wetsuit at about 40 knots, I ended up with the suit on backwards pretty much.

If I had a bikini on I would have ended up naked. You're brave.

the thought of me in a bikini just made me sick in my mouth a little.

But you dont even write your firstname anywhere (which I never have understood on these forums) - so are you a Mr or a Ms ?

I assume the first since you end your post like that - but not necessarily - a few girls would say the same :roll:

Apart from that - yes, getting wipeouts when going fast can be a challenge and experience - but mostly you will skip on the flat water surface a lot, and not always that bad.
In chop when you try to go full speed, it is a nightmare to crash, as you will feel you get everything torn apart or maybe off, sometimes, I agree 8)

I was only planning on doing a couple of runs and was not worried about crashing. Really I was just getting back on the board to ride around and breaking the record was totally not planned. I always wear a suit and an impact vest when riding seriously.
