In the interests of keeping on good terms with the NSRI, let's be proactive about communicating with them to prevent, I quote, Cape Times last year "kiteboarders drain NRSI resources...unnecessary callouts for kitesurfers etc, etc."
POINT ONE: If you lose your kite/board, let the NSRI know. If they find it at sea two days later and send out a search party for you, they will be pretty frustrated when they eventually locate you at Doodles, having a sundowner!
POINT TWO: If you spot abandoned gear/retrieve it at sea, let them know as you may help them solve a case of gear reported missing.
Please contact NSRI on (021) 4344011 during office hours or (021) 4493500 24hrs. Save these numbers in your phone. If you need their details for KZN, check out the website..
