A few pics of Last Saturdays Paddle

The calmness of Clifton belies the South Easter that came up while we relaxed in the bay and which made for an interesting paddle back. The combination of Atlantic swells and Wind means large (high) fast - running swells – good surfing conditions if you have the courage. The trick is to put away your fear and concentrate on your paddling speed. Pauli’s Carbon Fibre Epic wanted to take off...

I do apologize for posting the atlantic paddle so late.
The decision to paddle there was a last minute one made at basil’s suggestion the difference in the conditions was remarkable. The sea was flat as a pancake. Basil, Mark and I paddled from three anchor to clifton first beach, landed there, talked crap and paddled back. we even saw a sunfish on the way.
Basil, uncharecteristically, was distracted by the attractive beach patrons and fell out once and nearly twice – both in 10 cm of water- really.
As for Mark – he was just nervous of the real “big sea” but made it safely to the powerboat club for a boerie roll and a beer (or 20). friendly bunch at that club – lots of surfskiers with smart cars use the facilities there too.
some amazing tow vehicles to be seen...I am told that dave and barry went to soetwater? dave must start sharing the crayfish...
best regards paul
Basil came up with this one...
the simons town paddlers are going atlantic tomorrow!
their is a paddle tommorow morning (sunday 07/12/08) starting at the three anchor bay slipway – opposite kazkazi. we are meeting there at 09h00. with the south easter pumping in false bay the conditions should be better there.
