I released this message while attending the Kayak Waveology Autumn Gales event and BCU 5 star training.
This event runs every year, and is always a lot of fun for the boozing and eating, if the weather cooperates the kayaking can be good as well.
I did two days of 5 star training and two days of the event. I was pretty rusty on some of my skills for the 5 star training which was a bit disappointing. I am sure I hadn't practiced many of these skills in years.
The weather generally cooperated and the tide races ran well on both the ebb and the flood, we had wind against tide on a number of the days.
The organizers put together some great pictures, the good ones don't necessarily feature me, but I am in some of them. So funny how small the pictures make the waves seem.
Here is a video from the event, there is a picture of me actually catching a wave in my white on white boat at 4:01

Truth: When you get up you will always go back down again.
