I will agree overwhelmingly. And I raise you this easy day in the gorge. I would kill for a warm air warm water day there, even a relaxed one like this.

Sony fdr x3000 with Balanced Optical Steady Shot. Less than half the weight of a gimbal, camera, battery, and waterproof housing. Takes most of the shakes out - horizon not perfectly level, but you can see the boat tip, even though the cam is hard mounted to the deck of the V14.

the rig I used for the gimbal on head video weighs about a pound and a half - too heavy!! it's a 3 axis brushless gimbal suspending a GoPro 3+, with the whole thing in a custom waterproof housing. Interesting developments in small hi res cam designs and suspending just the lens and sensor are happening to get a much smaller lighter unit. Google Zerotech Rollcap.

A remix of some of last years evenings and downwinds - we didn't seem to have many big wave days (or maybe those were the ones I'd forgotten to charge the GoPro).

Hi Spacehopper, Thanks for posting! It was nice to see. I grew up in Budleigh Salterton. Beautiful part of the world... Red cliffs. Do you get many downwinds? Is the prevailing wind in summer SW? What is your usual route?

Cheers Rod,

we're still in a bit of an exploratory phase with routes locally. Herding sufficient cats to get a downwind organised tends only to happen a few times a year and Devon roads don't lend themselves to efficient car shuttles!

Sidmouth - Exmouth (or vice-versa in a SW) seems like a good route. Also done Berry Head - Shaldon (little bit on the video above) which has some great waves and Babbacombe - Exmouth, which gets a bit challenging with the 120 degree rebound off the sea wall at Dawlish.

Where are you paddling now?

Seems good fun! I live in NE Japan and paddle at Shichigahama. The sea is nice and warm in summer reaching about 25ºC and we have a SE sea breeze each afternoon. The fishermen here grow seaweed on floating racks so it is difficult to find a clear stretch along the coast for a decent downwind
