Erin Swain: Learning to Self Rescue: A MUST HAVE SKILL

After kiting with Allison, I heard that Scott was on his way over to Jockey's Ridge. I was stoked because I had been walking upwind all day and was ready to do a bonafide downwinder without worrying about staying upwind. Scott arrived around 5:30pm, so I threw my gear in his car and we drove down about 3 miles south.

Here in Sylt, July 1st came in with a bang in the kiteboard racing department at the 2011 World Championships.

In these conditions the race committee could not even anchor their start boats which motored in place all day long always in fear of getting rolled.

From there I rounded behind Sky, Damo, and Julien, passing them all on the downwind leg.
