The Downwind Dash
In a weeks time is the downwind dash, the race is approximately 18km from Langebaan to Saldanha Bay. Recently the kitesurfers have been dominating the event, but one of the disadvantages the kitesurfers have is the ease they can lose there boards because the tide will be going out, the swell can be as big as 3 metres in the mouth of the bay, and the wind direction South East (normal Cape Doctor) down the lagoon, the kitesurfers can quickly get detached from there kiteboards.
Most of the boards are recovered by the rescue boats, and a few picked up by fisherman days later, but not claimed because the rider’s don’t identify there kiteboards.
One of the best ways to identify your kite board is to use a kitesurfing boardtag.
Boardtag is a waterproof identification system, that will almost guarantee you get your board back when you lose it.
Boardtags are available Atlantic Surf, Table View Suntrax Table View. North Paddocks Cape Town, Uluwatu Langebaan, Slingshot Big Bay, Best Table View and Cabrinha Table View
