I spend a lot of time in my kayak fishing areas where you need to head out through the surf to get to the fishing grounds. So I have become pretty proficient at handling my kayak in the surf zone. I recently hooked up with the guys from Kayak Fish magazine to shoot some stills and video for a kayak surf instructional article and video.
It is a two part series, launching on one, landing on the other.
Check them out I think you will learn a couple things.
