I finally got back on my standup paddleboard after a long period of resting both sore elbows - and it was a good one.
|Surfers at The Pines, Shoreham, 7:30am
I paddled across to Zappas slowly testing out my arms. There was a little discomfort but I felt OK.
The waves at Zappas were small to medium size and surprisingly easy to catch. There was no wind so the takeoffs were smooth.
I logged 10 waves with a total of 1,461 wave ride distance. The longest ride was 60 seconds and 273m, almost to the beach.
It was so good to be surfing again!
Aspendale Fliteboard (#FB18)
I had my Fliteboard with me but decided to dodge the reefs at low tide and instead stopped at Aspendale on the way home for a 30 minute session on the Flow 1300 wing. I did a tour up to Parkdale Sailing Club then back to the Gnotuk Ave beach houses.
I covered 12.73km in 35 minutes and only used 50% of the battery. The Flow wing is more efficient that the Cruiser 1100.
