Surfing in a kayak

I had the opportunity to get a good thrashing in the ocean this week.

The surf was 2-4 feet at Higgins Beach and really nice; with the exception that it had a 6 second period which meant breaking out was very very challenging. I was worried about swimmers and other surfers, oh and the rocks too!.  This kayak is a Valley Storm surf kayak and has 3 thruster fins under the seat which really helps with boat control but requires a steep learning curve.  After one practice roll I was promptly reminded about who exactly was in charge when the ocean smacked me upside the head and knocked me over.  Yay I rediscovered my combat roll.  Enjoy the picsDSC_0222 DSC_0223 DSC_0225 DSC_0226
