The Kayak Arrived safe and sound about 3 weeks ago, and I am enjoying it a lot.
I have taken the kayak out 3 times now.
The first time it was very windy and English Bay was pretty rough. I was far too eager to try it out so I put on my life jacket and went for it. The Kayak handled really well and was easy to adapt to. The Waves just off shore move perpendicular to the beach and so I tried catching them on my way to false creek. I never quite managed it but I had a lot of fun.
I was out for 3.5-4 hours and when I stepped out of the kayak at trips end I nearly fell over. I thought my legs must just be numb from cold. But for the next 2 days I could barely walk because the muscles in my legs were so sore. My arms an shoulders didn’t really hurt at all. I did not expect my leg muscles to be so affected and they still were 5 days later. 🙂
The second trip was a little less rough but still quite wavy. I Traveled across English Bay this time from Kitsilano to West Vancouver when I looked back I was surprised how far away Kits was. I beached for a bit, bought some pizza, took pictures of a Seal and then headed back. The next day I wasn’t sore at all which is bizarre. I assume it was the extra wave action that was responsible the first time.
Thanks again for the excellent Kayak. 🙂
