Aterra Surfkayak Experience Peniche
Posted by aterrakayak på 20 april 2017
It have been a week of long workingdays since i arriwed home from Peniche. This easter we had a week of sunny hot weather and a supertough gang of hungry surfers from UK, Denmark, France and Sweden. I have learned since long time back that never estimate a person from their age or anything else. You dont know the skills of a person before they enters the water. And boy this was a hard going group. Allready first day they showed that they are not afraid of heavy water(waves up to 1,8m). I was planning for picking up a lot of swimmers during the week, as in a group of five its normally pretty much swimming. Actually one of the participants didnt take any swims at all, impressing! Now we also have a new nice boat Dagger Kaos wich is a Sit on Top surfkayak, that makes it easier for beginners. And its a suprisingly good surfkayak.
The prediction was good on monday and low the rest of the week but lucky us, we got good wave hight all days except for the last day. We know where to find waves after so many years here and this time we also discovered a new spot. On this spot we were alone and that is allways nice. To reach the spot you need a car and you have to walk a bit, but its worth it if its crowded on other spots. Next Surf Kayak Experience in Peniche is 26/6-1/7 http://www.aterra.se/surfkajakportugal.html
