If you just go for a paddle than you can stop thinking about wanting to go for a paddle.

2013: Post 11 – A windy weekend

We had a lot of wind this weekend; not fit for a paddle.  So it was back to St. Philips for a bit of water time... Sean calls it "slog 'n surf".... that's exactly what it is... slog out of the cove against the wind and surf it back in....  Greenland paddles generally don't catch much wind, but today mine certainly did at times.  At one point I was taking a pic of Sean, holding my GP with one hand when a wind gust very nearly took it away from me....

Here's a few pics...

There was someone in this shot but I was
too slow and they became hidden by the wave....

Brian and Tony





Taking a little rest  at the side of the cove...

It was certainly a good bit of fun.  Sean and Tony took some video so we are hoping the got some good video of the conditions.... I'll add a link to their blog posts once they do their posts... Here's Tony's video...


  1. That was a load of fun. Your shots capture the scale of the waves we ere playing in.

    I had a look at some of the video I shot. I have just about video of the whole morning so I'll have to sort through it and put together the best parts plus pick out some good hard driving music to accompany.

    Tony :-)

  2. look forward to seeing the video... wonder how Sean's came out...
