finless fun

this goes back to to 2017 (vid link at bottom)

when i was starting to get the feel of my wavesport Z in surf

the waves aren't that steep or powerful but more 'rampy'

good to play on the face with wide arc turns but easy to overpower

heaps of spray being kicked up (part of the slower boat speed and/or less boat skimming)

so my eyes are getting redder and redder with the spray of the salt water as the video goes on

- it was all a natural high


lots of folk seem to be kayaking now in all of its many variations

but I still like a whitewater kayak with a greenland paddle in small-medium surf

..... with not too many people to share it with!


(I am very slowly and incompetently building a composite kayak, with my own mods, but more on that in another post)

kayak froth

vid link below - 
my old gopro 4 died 
replaced it with a gopro 7 
but had heaps of trouble using it until finally reinstalled the software and now seems to work OK 
(voice commands are still more miss than hit)

mon arvo surf with delphin kayak and novorca paddle -2015

vid link is below photos -

video is back from 2015 when i was still happily getting wet drubbings

i don't have any bit of kit from that time
(which is strangely reassuring)
sold my yellow delphin 150 to a friend - great boat 
broke my novorca paddle in the surf in a later session

if you had a video of yourself kayaking five years ago, how would it look?

sequestered surf kayaks

still surf kayaking
because it is fun
and i am super lucky
to live in an area 
which is naturally sequestered
