You are in the middle of a giant softbox.
The light reflecting from the salt is almost the same intensity as from the sun.
So the last thing you need is more lights, but flags, scrims, bounceboards, blackboards nets andwhatnot
Salt is eating into your equipment, so bring a lot of plastic bags and zip ties.
The flats is one of the rare points on earth, where dehydration and sunburn is REALLY a serious issue.
Make sure you bring enough water, mineral tablets and sun blocker.
Wear something loose of pure cotton or better linen.
Good sunglasses and a wide brim heat of course.
A walky-talky or some sort of radio is important, chances are - depending on where you are - that your cellphone won´t work.
Make sure you got something that creates shadow, like a tent or pavilion.

If you are going to wear shorts with boxers or no underwear put sunscreen on your 3 piece set...trust me.
You will be at the mercy of the wind so don't get too attached to big overheads...unless you have the budget for it. I'd take a few 12'x ultrabounces and you'll be able to go neg or pos quickly. Have a half grid or 1/2 soft frost for overhead on close-ups. K.I.S.S
