Son and Surf

Had a great time taking Taliesin out for a short surf session. He took a while to thaw out though.

I borrowed a Mega Impulse and a Neutron to try out. Impulse did it for me (the bigger version). Resulting conclusion I now have to face, is that as from today, I must be a large paddler.
The rest of the day I had that afterglow feeling you get when your body finally returns to operating temperature.

Reminds me of the poet who wrote that he wish he could know once again the seriousness of a child at play. Pure joy.

They can simultaneously be pure joy and pure devilry!

Alison, the boat Tal is using is a Dagger Infrared. He is quite a big 10 year old and it is a very nice size for him and fit wise should last him a few years. Quite a versatile maneuverable boat. He enjoys it very much, managing to surf some impressively large waves and stay up-most of the time!
