Is this winter and happy new year
The last day of the year and a great paddle. At last the weather changed and with it the sea. The forecast was for stormy weather and high seas but at 7am the sea was still flat and so as we went out we expected changes. A few of us  went to play in the rising surf while the rest of the group paddled away, when the group came back things got interesting.
As the sea had risen and the waves began breaking on the shore, landing became a bit of a challenge for the inexperienced . Also as our beach has changed since the last storm the landing site is now much smaller and so if you cant control your boat in surf it becomes more difficult.
As you can see in the movie, lots of swimming went on .
The moral of the story is.. get out there in rougher conditions and practice practice and then practrice some more.
Here is a short video that Zohar made showing us the winter of 2010.
AND ON THIS NOTE I WISH EVERYBODY A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND LOTS OF PADDLING IN 2011
