Good old fashion ocean paddle.
« on: December 23, 2021, 08:47:57 PM »
I thought there were no waves, but there were. Oh well, only brought my distance board. Water was cold, wind was cold, and the ocean had a little bump. Made through the waves without getting wet. I did 6 miles, with the first 3 straight into a cold head wind. Then turned for a down-breeze. It's amazing how one minute it's cold and you're paddling hard, pounding into the on coming chop, then you turn 180 degrees and it's just a quiet down wind cruise. 
My old Rainbow sandals are about done, but my trusty 15 year old bamboo roll mat still has some life in it.
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"
