Sometimes you have to learn the hard way, or you could take some advice from Tom Court who had a scary encounter with the reef on his surf session. This can happen to anyone, even on a kite! Watch Tom’s latest vlog to see what he did to save himself so he could get back out on the water for a wing and kite session with the crew.

“Even a day in paradise can set you back if you start the day with a near downing experience. Its the first time this has ever happened to me, but my feet where pushed into a hole in the reef, causing my leash to get stuck on a rock or sharp bit or reef. Holding me down for two waves and then I had to undo my leg rope.

The board still stuck on the reef, I waited for a gap and dived down to undo it from the bottom. Managing to get away clean, with my board was a good thing, but a reminder to always have your wits about you even when you least expect it!!

Wound the day down with a sunset shred with Paula Navotna and Clem Roseyro as they winged and I kited!! Feeling blessed by these weeks!!”
