Decided to postpone the trip to Port Underwood, the forecast was not good. Instead headed up to Lake rotoiti but it was gusty up there two. Tried a bit of fishing but with no luck, got blown about by the wind for a while. Might head to the port early tomorow.

A couple of things I have learnt to take to surf casting competitions.

2-3L of water, maybe a sports drink. Beer is good if you want to encourage heat stroke. Food is always good.

Long Sleeve shirt, pants and a good hat. Lots of Sunscreen. For clothing a cool thin material with a decent UV rating is best.

These hats would be good I feel, http://www.trademe.co.nz/Clothing/Unise … 310468.htm . Going to buy myself one or two. Also sunglasses because you spend the morning looking into the sun.

Obiviously this mainly applies for hot days.
