    What happened?

     
    I launched July 24th near Kaena Point on the North Shore of Oahu with some other experienced kayak fisherman. We were expecting beautiful weather and light winds as predicted by Noaa and multiple sources. Once we got a couple miles out, a remnant of a nearby tropical storm took a turn towards us and brought the worst conditions I've ever seen offshore in Hawaii. I had to be rescued and the ResQlink PLB helped the Coast Guard pinpoint my location.

    It may be small, but it's tough. The ResQLink™+ Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a buoyant, GPS-enabled rescue beacon that's suited for outdoor adventures of all sizes (think: everything from hiking and cycling to hunting and fishing). Should you run into an unexpected survival situation, the ResQLink+ PLB will relay your location to a network of search and rescue satellites, allowing local first responders to more easily get you home safe and sound. Be Prepared for the Unpredictable
