My first visit to the Isle of Man was a good one. Beautiful coastline, surf beaches, caves and arches and... All around the Calf of Man are first class tidal races to play in. We did rock ledge landings of the kind that up until now I only read about in books. OK, I did not manage a perfect timing of the the surge to be flushed onto the one meter high ledge. At a 45 degree angle I just barely was prevented from being flushed back to sea.
When looking at the pictures, please be reminded that: "no paddlers got injured or kayaks got damaged during these training sessions".
The sea kayak symposium is hosted by Adventurous Experiences and is part of the annual Isle of Man Adventure week.
