Bug Light tide race – practicing some rough water skills

By

Here is a rather long video/slideshow from this past weekend’s [non-official-NACK trip!] venture out to play in the ebbing tide race at Bug Light off of Orient, NY. Tom, Mike, Chris, & Alan headed out to test some of their improving skills after the training sessions up in Connecticut with Greg & Paula from kayakwaveology. It was a great spot, with the racing ebb just feet from a sandy spit of land where we could pull off in an eddy and rest, eat, and set up a camera on a tripod. We hope you enjoy watching. We sure loved the trip!

    Paul, I think the 9-13 foot waves and 52MPH winds at Robert Moses on Sunday might be beyond our skill set 馃檪
