Thursdays lessons at 5.30 are the most frustrating for me. Fact is I am supposed to be at work till 6, but how is one supposed to concentrate on work when you know that there is a kayak lesson taking place and your whole being wants to be there.
Yesterday I hung a sign on the door....gone fishing ... and ran to the beach
Lesson of the day was skulling for support, moving your boat sideways with a vertical stroke, hanging draw and rolling.
The sea was a bit rougher today, good for rescue practice and surfing
Now you can see how all those skill come together, moving you boat in position for a fast rescue you need to be able to go in all directions, sometimes forwards, backwards and sideways all at the same time.
Practice practice practice.
And then we played in the waves
If your instincts have been honed you can roll at the last moment to avoid a crash and in fact that is what should have happened in the above picture. If both had rolled before impact it would have been much better, as it was nothing happened this time.
