Water Sport Safety

I now carry a PLB Personal Locator Beacon and helmet every time I am out in the water. 

Personal Locator Beacons work through search and rescue satellites to send a distress signal to the Coastguard.

I survive to tell a story and I have responsibilities to strongly advice every water sport person to wear a means of contact and inform family or friends of going out and coming in times.

Also if you are an outdoor adventurer enthusiast such as, travelling to remote places, skiing, rock climbing, your life is so worth investing in a PLB or other location devices.

We owe this to our families, friends and rescue services.

Of Course with any water sports it's so important to keep physically fit.

Being on the Ocean mind, body and soul need to be alert - so on land training and regular exercise etc... with an healthy diet is vital.

Wind Weather & Tides

It is important for anyone going out at sea even for a swim, to check the weather forecast, wind and tides for their location and other hazards such as rip currents or rip tides etc. 

It only takes few minutes of your time and it's a basic safety precaution that could save you from troubles and if possible never swim alone. 

For water sports activities a more detailed weather forecast, wind and tides predictions it's essential, as it is the awareness of your level of ability and fitness.
