Changeable Weather

Any time one goes out for a paddle, it's wise to go prepared for changing weather. This rule is especially true in the Fall and today proved no exception. Have a look above at conditions while I was getting ready to launch. 15°C, calm. T-shirt weather?

I hadn't been on the water fifteen minutes when everything changed. A stiff breeze came up and within minutes, breaking waves had built up making things quite lively.

Even trying to take pictures started to get tricky! I was glad to be warm and dry in my drysuit as I played in the waves.

Is that a greenland paddle I spy? If so you should join our growing global movement - :)
