Here’s a great tip that’s apparently just for girls, but we’re pretty sure will be useful for everyone.
Carrying your gear de-rigged can be a nightmare, especially if you’ve got a long walk to an out of the way windsurfing spot. This technique will make those long walks to the beach a lot simpler.
But if you want to take it a step further you can follow Sarah Bibby’s example. Strap your gear together in the same way as Lena, but then make yoke-style carrying aid out of an old board bag strap or similar. Looks like this still might cause a little bit of neck pain, but looks a million times easier than carrying just with your hands.
