I’m currently using a “Flyer” wing paddle with a mid-sized blade from Fast Kayak in Central California. I’ve been using it for years and I love it. I’d like to try a smaller blade and a higher cadence. Maybe a Braca XI Surf Ski paddle with a 675cm2 blade and a 217-227 shaft is my next paddle?

It’s fun to paddle a surf ski! Newport Harbor, and the ocean off Corona Del Mar, in my case. Thanks, Newport Aquatic Center!

I just bought a new Nikkor AF-S 35mm f1.8 G ED lens for my d750 camera. I took it with me down to the Newport Aquatic Center and shot a few frames with it.
I tried Philippe Boccara’s loop around Linda Island in Newport Harbor. It’s a 0.8 mile loop that he does in 6 minutes. Or about 7:20 for me.
I tried a couple of Fenn Surf Skis on Saturday. The Swordfish & The Bluefin. Next to try, the Mako XT trainer.
