Wind+Waves=FUN! – The Juskuz Experience


Today was a pretty normal day, except for the fact that the wind has been a blowin pretty long and hard all day long. What does this usually mean?? ===>WAVES! Now, these are probably pretty small for some people, but here on Lake Superior 5-7ft waves are pretty good. After work I just had to take the kayak out. Now, I have to say that it wasn’t all that bad. At first I got a little uneasy when the horizon disappeared, but it was only gone for a second. Horizon why are you so sneaky? Anyway, I was out at Breakers and launched from inside the breakwall. Once outside the breakwall I was greeted with some pretty monstrous rollers that every so ofter threatened to break right over my deck. Let me say, this is the most fun bracing practice I’ve had in a while. Also, this is the first time I have ever had to roll due to something other then my dorking around. I was just paddling along and all of a sudden I was in the water. I don’t really know what happened, it just happened fast. But all that roll practice really came in handy, as I was back up before the water flooded my sinuses and threatened to get my brain wet. All in all it was lots-o-fun. I can’t wait for the wind to pick up again… this is so much fun.
