Lovely wave!

Today I was coaching Surf Kayaking at Machrihanish Bay. We were so lucky with fabulous condition's, ideal for all levels of surfing. The sun shone all day and I am amazed how warm the water is, bare foot day! The wave sized ranged from waist to chest high and was clean most of the day. Most of the guys today had never been surf kayaking before, but have done allot of sea kayaking and river running, so they were keen to get to grips with the specifics of this exciting sport and transfer some of the skills learnt today. It was great to be back out in the surf today, I just love that feeling of speed of the bottom turn.
