I was hoping for some fun today & was heading to my favourite local tide race, Nells Point for a play! The forecast was F2-6 with a moderate sea state so it was possible, hopefully?
I was meeting Chris Evans & Andrew James for todays splash & we all met up just before 11:00 at the old harbour in Barry to be greeted by disappointingly calm conditions.
Oh well, I'm sure we can find something fun to do, rescues & roll I reckon :)
Chris pondering suitable insults to shout at the fishermen?
Andy hits the water too & its time to go.
We head out out across the old harbour & Whitmore Bay to be greeted by a calm tide race as we had expected when we launched. It was so flat I even forgot to take a picture to tell the story!
So we headed into Jacksons Bay for some rolling, rescues & Shenanigans. You'll have to see the accompanying video for that ;)
It was lovely at Jacksons though so we chilled in the sun for some time before heading back out for some more silliness :)
Before long Chris was assuming his usual position!
To be fair he was trying to do a 360 on the back deck ;)
Yours truly, cheeeeese.
Chris makes me paddle the snotmobile whilst he tries a proper kayak!
We head out to Bendricks Rock to see if there's any rougher water to be found?
And we find some small standing waves on the causeway.
It was a pretty fab day out after all & I'll try & get the accompanying video online later for'ya.
