Out today in 30 gusting 35 with a bit much kite and dropped my board.I was knackered and while I can usually body drag pretty well I was just too tired. An hour searching the beach to no avail but luckily a member of the public phoned me and I get to pick up my board tonight.

Will buying a go-joe make me turn gay or cause my manhood to shrink?

Go on with you -- you were too tired to body drag but had the energy to search up and down the beach for an hour?

Glad you got your board back. Wrote your phone number on it?

probs wont buy gojoe but more than likely will do similar in ocean next summer. My shoulder cant handle long stints of chasing a twintip in an outbound current.

I saw a simple arm floaty around a handle, think that may lift twinnie enough to catch wind toward the beach.

Havent done it yet but cant afford to loose twintips every time I drop the board.

Certainly would not endorse those things however, I have read somewhere that a small tube (wheel barrow style - check Bunnings) does the same job. Undo your handle, stick it through the tube, tighten it up, pump it up, hit the water looking like a sad kook. That said, will help to find your board and cheaper than a gay-jo.

In all honesty I reckon it would be awful in 30 knots. In that kind of wind you get so much chop and unless you have a wide board you would find the inflatable thing hitting the chop as you ride through. Probably going to end up throwing you off balance and pitching you off.

Good for that current going opposite direction to the tide situations though. Just probably not in 30 knots

Looks **** but it works (unlike the dyi solutions). If you are mowing the lawn with the odd jump like most fellow kiters, a gojoe will not in any way hinder you.

You can pretend youre cool,
& bodydrag like a fool,
lose your board and cough up some beer. Or Get the right tool, Fool. Are you gonna listen to these fat grandads on the beach, they all belong on Briggs & strattens. Go Joe does what it says on the tin and you can grab jump over them lawn mowing grandpas all day long.
