Thursday evening bounce

Last evening five of us met to play in the wind and waves at St. Philips.  Pictures hardly do justice to the conditions so I decided to record some video.  Previous video I shot was with the camera fixed to the foredeck but I found water drops stayed on the lens and the perspective was rather shallow.

I tried a new set-up with the camera fixed to my helmet.  It worked fine for the most part but I have to remind myself in future not to look around suddenly.  I liked the fact that I could keep the camera on the action by looking in that direction rather than having to point the kayak.

Anyway, have a look at the edited down three minute clip with music by local band "nomadic" and turn up the volume!

It was an enjoyable evening.  The waves dropped as the evening progressed.  Just paddling around the cove worked out to 8.5 kms.


  1. Nice bit of water Tony. Looks like a blast.

  2. It was a lot of fun for sure with the sun setting in the distance. I fixed the camera to my helmet so that made the waves look smaller. My last run out before quitting was into the sun and while the sun disappeared from view from the trough the camera being a bit higher didn't show the sun blocked out.
