The Autumn weather arrived in Southern Australia this week bringing a mad search for thermal paddling tops, waterproof jackets and beanies. Those who ventured out were rewarded with a blustery beach launch and some light drizzle.
Overcast skies and choppy sea conditions were the order of the day as we gathered our kayaks for the launch.
Do you think the shorebreak will get any worse ? It seems easy enough to get out but will be a little larger when the tide comes in.
And sure enough; It was a little more fun landing.
Has everyone landed…….or are we missing someone ?
See, I told you it would calm down as soon as we got back on the beach !
Just another day “Paddling South”.
Woo hoo! Really enjoyed these shots, and I am shivering just thinking about the cold surf. Here in Mexico the water is getting close to 30 degrees.
Hi. That water temperature is like a warm bath !!!. It’s getting a little cold here with days now around 20C so we are heading north to Gammon Ranges for a short trip. MTB riding and enjoying the desert sun.Enjoy the water while you can……Ian.
Great shots! Whatever happened to the surf-skier? He doesn’t seem to be in the last photo… Have fun this winter! We are finally seeing a glimpse of Spring here. J&A
HI Geeks. The paddler body surfed in on the next wave !! Have fun paddling……although your Spring will be colder than our mid winter.
Well, we are relieved! That last photo looked like y’all were saying, “Uh-oh, where’d he go?”
