Took the Skua out for a surf the other day and tried out the new Gopro. Stoked with the results, just need to get some better mounts sorted, more Rainex on the lens and some moisture absorbance pads and should get some awesome footage :y:

:rock: Brilliant Jason , great footage .
Nice break and you'd want to watch for that rock as the tide drops.
Try leaning well forward and stab paddle into wave face and pull your way through ( like Duck diving a surfboard ) or if too big and closing out on you a roll to try and stop back endo .
The play boats are great you can even cartwheel em into a wave by chopping the nose under and flicking her through sideways :rock:

Cheers

It's the bay that you look out over from Pig Out Point (end of Hobson St). That is the Te Henui River mouth at the start. Bring the Reload out some time :y:

Yes there is a few big rocks that start to show certain times of the tide. I paddle that place a lot and know where 'most' of the rocks are :?: The trick is to decide very early which side of the rock you are going to go. As Mad Mike said things come up pretty fast and a 5.3m boat will never turn as fast as you want it to with rocks fast approaching :sweat:

So much fun, as you can see it is such an awesome kayak surfing wave with the possibility of some very long rides. Can't wait till next time :rock:

Those were beautiful little waves. Would have been a lot of fun in a waveski.
