For the first time I was out in a wind that made my paddling impossible.
Forecasts promised 6 m/s and at one time when I checked observations it said 14 m/s and up to 17 m/s in gusts.
Wind gusts was so strong that no matter how much I paddled,I went backward,I was totally exhausted when I get back to shore but need to say this time I really appreciated the stability of my Big Rig.
It's very important for me to feel safe out there.
It's a shame I couldn't capture on film how big those waves really were and how strong the wind gusts were.
Still managed to catch something.
