I had no reason to post this other than it reminded me how clever we all are. You tend to forget how tricky these skis are to master.

At least he's got a good attitude! Once he gets a wing paddle and and a bit more time in the cockpit he'll be hooked.

Good on you for having the gumption to put this up Dicko (assuming it was film of yourself!). Once you fall in once, it becomes ever more easy to fall in with each subsequent swim. By the end of it you're feeling too shagged to get back in the boat.

Out of curiosity, what were you paddling (looked like the ski was better than the paddle..) and what was the location in which you filmed?

No that wasn't me. I found it on youtube. It just reminded me how damned tippy these skis are when you first get in one. The ski was
a carbonology vault which I can assure you feels ridiculously stable all these years down the track. Yet when you put a first timer in one....chaos. I think it was in Sydney.

If nothing else, he has a solid paddle.

Maybe some beginners would be better off with a flat paddle or wood Greenland paddle in the start to allow easier sculling/bracing.

Probably scared of the shore break
