Next i tried an inside turn & she quite surprised me how quickly she turned. Not sure if I was imagining it but it felt like she spun on her widest point slightly to the rear in the Swedish form design? Imagined or not she likes inside turns.
Heading out I spot some tasty waves in the tidal confusion that regularly churns up on the West side of Sully Island. I have a laugh as the bow rises & falls on the waves giving me a refreshing face wash. I turn back in to surf a few waves before continuing on to Flat Holm.
She likes surfing too.
It was only a quick test today as I only paddled about 9 miles but its fair to say that I'm very impressed with the Etain. Can't wait for the next paddle :D
