Lumpy Waters Play Day by P&H Paddlers Admin
 

Lumpy Waters Play Day

The 2011 Lumpy Waters Kayak Symposium was over for another year. Organized by Alder Creek Kayak and Canoe it was once again an excellent event with great comaraderie, paddling and learning. On the first day there was an incident that involved some bad decision-making by yours truly (with others) that thankfully and luckily did not result in loss of life (a full account of this incident can be found on Mark Whittaker’s blog).

Once again, after three days of teaching classes some of the coaches (including PH paddlers Chris Lockyer, Matt Nelson and Sean Morley) took the opportunity to cut loose and go play. We chose Three Arches Rocks as the venue for this now annual Play Day and the increasing westerly swell produced some big waves for us to play in.

After a very stressful experience on Friday and much introspection and insomnia it felt soooo good!
