So, I'm new to windsurfing but I was out at Sandringham having my red-hottest go. I saw an older dude talking with my wife on the shore as I was finishing up and he says, "you need to get a harness..." we chat for a while and say goodbye. 5 mins later, while I'm packing up, dude comes back with a lightly used Dakine harness and just gives it to me. Never got his name but the good-will shall be returned to a different random sailor. Thanks, cool guy who's name I never got!

I'd watch him! He's tuning your mrs on the beach when you are out at sea, then gives you a tool to keep you out at sea longer !.....it's a plan so he can spend more time with ya Mrs on the beach ....smooth! :)

Check the hook hasn't been messed with so it doesn't break when you are a few km out to sea

Yup that was me. Send 15YO single malt scotch to this....

no no it wasn't , but a super nice gesture.
and don't send marmite instead.

BTW, what's older ?

Sweet moves from the dude. You will be able to stay out miles longer on the water now with a harness.
