Surfski Training for Sea Kayakers

Leave your heavy sea kayak at home and join us as we explore the world of fast, lightweight performance surf skis. We will take the fundamental skills you already have under your belt and apply them to this new craft, while exploring new concepts such as wing paddles as we go. This class will capitalize on the open deck ski design to focus on full body power transfer, making you a more effective paddler no matter your boat of choice.

Time: 3hours     Cost: $79.00

Dates:  August 12th, 19th, September 3rd

Instructor: Brandon Heitpas, ACA L2 Surfski Instructor, ACA L3 Coastal Kayak Instructor, UKCC L1 Coach

We had a nice time on the joint Flatwater/Sea Kayak trip on Point Judith Pond.

The toughest part of this trip was launching 12 boats at the busy boat ramp at Marina Park.  Once that was done, we headed out of the Upper Pond, and down the east side of Point Judith Pond along Harbor Island, Ram Island and Great Island. On entering the Port of Galilee, we bobbed in the waves and debated where to stop for lunch.  We finally decided on the beach in Jerusalem.  Of course, that meant crossing the busy boat channel.  From there, we paddle up the west side of the pond along Snug Harbor, and then crossed the boat channel again for the trip back to the Upper Pond. Fun trip - thanks to Peter and Sharon for leading.

For those of you free to paddle during the week, a few of us plan to meet at the Sakonnet Point put-in for a 10:30 a.m. launch. Seeing that it's supposed to be a warm day, it'll also be a good time to practice rescues, etc. and get wet to stay cool.  8)

For all you bare-armed female paddlers out there, Walmart has non-cotton Junior Scoop Tank Tops that are great for paddling. 

-92% polyester, 8% spandex.
-The scoop design has large armholes which don't chafe your armpits (a pet peeve of mine). 
-They're a soft, light jersey that feels really good on your skin, but is supportive enough to be worn without a bra (especially for us members of the itty-bitty-titty club)
-The shoulder straps are wide enough to cover narrow bra straps, but narrow enough to be attractive (IOW, not your mother's tank).

Best of all, they're only $3.88!  I now have five in various colors.   :D

Good solid surfing happening this past weekend.  Some swell was around.  We now have a new batch of good performers.  Keep an eye for these guys now.

More next time
