Isle of Man Symposium

On the Isle of Man for the annual Adventurous Experiences symposium.

Because of the very strong winds we could not go too far out of Port Erin. But this area has lots of dynamic options. One is the confusing breaking seas over the reef just outside of it. Surf inside the bay. Wind shelters and wind fetch areas. And lots of wave action over and near rocks. The half-day sessions I ran were 'Adapting skills for wind', 'Waves & Rocks' and 'Rocks & Waves'.

For Isle of Man is an Island it has lots and lots of challenges for any level of paddler.
