THE JACKET

Musto MPX Gore-Tex Pro Offshore Jacket 

We did a lot of research on jackets before leaving for this trip - we went into shops and tried them on and inspected the features. This one is undoubtedly the best quality for the best price.

You can't compromise on a good jacket if you're sailing offshore as when it gets hairy out there, it's all hands on deck.

THE OILSKINS

Musto MPX Gore-Tex Pro Offshore Trousers 

Same as the jacket, we did heaps of research here and these are the best. Amazing tough fabric and super lightweight.

My only pants on the boat that haven't shredded to pieces.

THE ear savers

Surf Ears 3.0 Water Out Sound in Ear Plugs

I deadset never go in the water without these.

As a lifelong surfer, kiter and diver, surfer's ear has started catching up with me. Not only is it an uncomfortable condition, it can cause irreversible damage.

These things are amazing and I really want to urge any folks out there who spend a lot of time in the water to protect their ears. 

THE FINS

Cressi GARA 2000 HF Freediving Fins

A good set of carbon fibre fins are out of my price range at the moment, but in the meantime I'm so impressed with these plastic ones.

 

 I like a firmer fin for more propulsion and these guys are the shit. I've tried a few fins in my time and I keep coming back to these.

THE KITE

Liquid Force Solo V2 Kite

Great travel kite, great for the boat as packs up nice and small to chuck in the dingy or onto my back for missions on foot.

Comes in all sorts of sizes too. Yiew!
