Back in a sea kayak

Today was the first day in a sea kayak after my lower back injury. Nigel kindly lent me an ExplorerHV sea kayak so that had a little more legroom for my still hurting hamstrings. Saskia and I left from Porth Dafarch beach for Penrhyn Mawr, where a good swell was running.
It was very difficult to take it easy today not wanting to over exert my back. Seeing Shawna, Leon, Justine and Barry catching the perfect waves did hurt a bit. After a break Saskia and I continued to South Stack.
My back feels OK, only my left leg hamstrings are still a bit stiff.
