An afternoon paddle on the Menai Strait with Justine. It is neaps. So we were pleasantly surprised to find a (gentle) working Swellies wave. Justine wondered if it would be a bigger neaps. Looking it up later; indeed today was a 5 meter neap tide...

It is rather difficult to position oneselves on the wave. Before I know it I am off of it. But I am better at it than last time around. The front wave looks so small, but still has enough steepness and 'speed' to 'surplace-surf' the green wave; magnifique!
