Amazing downwind run on the "Étang de Berre" near Marseille two weeks ago.

19 km. Wind between 50 and 60 knots. Just my friend David and me  8)

It's amazing you can DW with the wind speed that high.

Thanks for sharing your video. I enjoyed watching it.

It's amazing you can DW with the wind speed that high.

Actually it was easier than it usually is on this run. The wind flattened the water, as you can see around 01.45

The thing was to check that we always stayed on the track. With this wind, you definitely want to know where you're going to land, and it's hard to make last-minute trajectory corrections (even if I had my magic daggerboard).

I used a double leash (actually, a regular leash doubled with a spectra rope and two bowline knots ) ,and  I have two plugs on the board.

And a paddle leash, too.. (just a rope between the paddle and my belt), a helmet, and of course a PFD   

I always take a backup paddle, and use a  Real-Time GPS Tracker (www.greenalp.com/realtimetracker/) , just in case

great wind!
odd knots

It might just be weird camera angle but the blue looks like a "noeud vache".

What is the point of 2 bowlines ?

Not a "nœud de vache" but a "nœud d'écoute" http://mesnoeuds.free.fr/knot.php?knotId=30

The pink one is connected to my regular coiled leash and the 2 plugs. The blue one is the backup, for the second leash/spectra rope.


When I take only one leash, it's this one, with 2 bowlines knots, just in case the velcro fails

It looked weird but thought I should stay polite in case you were getting all fancy with a nœud d'écoute.

Where do you launch from? Near Beau-Rivage?

@PaddleSpot

Nice shot of the tail. I thought your DW board was 28" wide. I was a little surprised to see it is 29".

Thanks for sharing the photo.

I've still no idea what you are doing with the "double leash".... beyond me!

How do you attach the paddle to the front - any pics of the set up there please. Interested to see your paddle leash too ?

Well done for wearing the helmet.....so obvious but hardly anyone wears them.

That's my old 14'x29" F-ONE 2012, excellent in tough conditions  :D

I would not imagine to use one of my homemade rounded boards over 30 knots  :P

My customized helmet : yellow paint, and pads to protect...the board :-)
