I added the Kiteworld article as an app to my desktop so it is real easy to find it now. Amazon has a cell phone wrist holder too which I purchased. The beacon will still need to be put into a waterproof bag/pouch. I have one of the seal a meal products and will try it out with the beacon. I will post here how it work out.

Check out the blog post and Kiteworld article for some over-water tips. In your case it might make sense to try and attach the beacon (in a pouch) to where you hold the boom
I've got a few options now to carry the beacon and think for windsurfing, it may be best to just put it in the small cell phone waterproof pouch and wear it around my neck. Not sure if wearing it around my wrist really has any advantage, although I've figured out how to accomplish that too. I could also bring my iPhone along for the ride (wrist or armband) but I'd have too many gadgets to keep track of when my main enjoyment is actually windfoiling :)
