Out of Place

Sea kayaking in Netherlands is not known for it's tide-races. Having said that, occasionally one can find standing waves over (shifting) sand bars. Today we could play at the T2 buoy off Texel. Continuing around Noorderhaaks (with a Peddelpraat club trip) with more sand bars and wide surf zones. Three capsizes, one roll, two swim's, one re-entry-and-roll and one T-rescue. Hey! I did not flip once! And a good work-out against the wind on the way back. Last week's sore back muscle still there this morning: gone! Start of Summer.
