A new location with a new guide – Danny from Outdoor Explore. I needed to get some more sea work done, so we hit the coast today. The plan had been to do 15km – 7.5k along the coast and then turn around. With blue sky and the sun shining, things looked good. However, at 3k, Danny spotted a Haar off in the distance, and by […]

The first was for the touring kayaks, SUPs, and proneboards, and an hour or so later, the second group would start, consisting of surf skis and […]
