Here I was demonstrating getting ready for a C to C, and reaching up and over that hull to allow the blade to get to as close to the surface as possible.
We still have 1 more class left in March with primepaddlesports, shoot me a message if you'd like to be a part of it.

Kayak HipsterKayak Hipster2018-02-14Yet another lesson learned by getting slammed in the face. I was on the shore watching, thinking I was in charge of my timing to launch between sets. Tricksy ocean decided to suck me right into the impact zone without my approval. You can see my resignation as I stop back paddling and accept the ride... I then get ready to get a big stroke and power into the wave.
Takeaway: when timing your launch in surf, make sure you're waiting in a spot where YOU'RE in control of your timing, and you're not handing that decision over to the water...
