Double Trouble
Saturday, December 09, 2006

How often do you see double seakayaks in rough conditions!? What about 5 of them together in a force 7 ?

Today Alun and I filmed 10 fine paddlers braving the December cold and taking doubles out off Rhoscolyn Head on Anglesey. The result will be seen in 'This is the Sea 3', in a section called 'Double Trouble'. I'm just loading in the first tape now and it looks good. I was impressed by how easy they made it look in pretty big waves, and how much faster the doubles are compared to singles. We also had some fun trying out rolling, some fancy strokes, a double balance brace and lots of good humour! There was just the one swim, and a double re-entry and roll!

Thanks to Jeff Allen & Simon Osborne, Barry Shaw & Phil Clegg, Keirron Tastagh & Harry Wheelan, Gemma Rawlings and Guto Wyn, Axel Schoevers and John ( from Plas Menai ). Thanks to Plas Menai, Nigel Dennis, Barry & Seakayaking Cornwall for providing the kayaks, and thanks to Alun and Ros for filming. Finally thanks to Axel for taking the photographs!

Some people don't know when to stay at home and sit in front of the fire!

...and some people just love to get out there and have some fun! Totally wild, Justine!

Having tried rolling a double (in a poll when I was first learning to roll) I can appreciate how much fun it must have been in those conditions. What a time you folks must have had!
