Left my wetsuit at Sherman Island today!

Postby oskar » Thu May 16, 2013 8:53 pm

I came home and realized I didn't have my wetsuit after today's session at Sherman island. Did anyone find a black rip curl wetsuit with grey and red on the inside? Either it was left right by the trash bin by the parking next to the launch site, or I left it on my car roof and it fell off while I drove away, in which case it will probably be along the road somewhere. Please let me know if you have found it or know someone who may have. Thanks a lot!

Does kitesurfing draw from the mentality of people who forget things often? So many "Lost/Forgot this and that"
It's like you guys live in a world where there are no thieves and the beach is your private backyard :twisted:

Thanks for that observation, kandrey89.

Is there a place at sherman where people leave stuff they find? Heard someone talk about that yesterday. Thanks!

Kandrey89: yes, lots of people leaves keys, GoPros, boards, harnesses, etc...
lol. Most of the time somebody else has it and it's returned after a week or so.
6 pack is the usual reward. ~~~
I remember when I started. Lost my board at alameda with my number on it. Was found 3 weeks later at bay farm.

Yes, at the beach launch, right behind the bushes, there is a little shack with windsurfing equipment. Usually people leave found stuff there.
Also, when smaller stuff is found (keys, or GoPro, ...) people leave them to indian bob and minna.
Kites: 2014 F-One Bandit VII: 12m, 10m and 8m. All pink/blue.
Board: 2014 F-One Spicy & 5'6 Fish.
Harness: Manera Exoharness.
Wetsuit: Underwave Sultan shortleg 4/3.

Hi,

Was anyone at sherman today. How was it? I'm considering making the drive up tomorrow, but not sure if it will be worth it.

Thanks

I caught Sherman this afternoon. It was light, but fun.
Tomorrow is a N wind day, so avoid Sherman.
