I see the difference between peddling and paddling thru surf as the difference between a stick shift and an automatic trans. The peddling (automatic) is all around easier to use, but if ya gotta muscle thru something, the paddle (stick shift) is best for the job at hand.

Sry for SPAM but if this helps someone it's worth it. SOme good advice in these ..

The first two are to get your attention, all kidding aside whitewater rescue is bitch. Make sure your hooks are secure and your gaff has a nub on the point and is strapped in tight so you aren't the first thing gaffed for the weigh-in when you roll.

This one is a great short "How To" launch in surf.

Before you go fishing in rough water, surf or moving current it is important to know how to get back in your kayak after you fall out. Ken Whiting shows us the trick to getting back in after you fall out. Sat will not be a good day to learn, you have to practice this before you go out in the kind of surf predicted for Saturday.

How to: i.e do not stop in the breakers Stay perpendicular to the waves

How Not To: Do none of the above...

Note that it doesn't take "monster surf" to make a bad morning...

Have fun, Use caution, Plan ahead

I hope the 2-4s that swell info is saying today are the same tomorrow. Just looked at the cams and looks pretty damn flat to me. Little surf but easy to manage.

Good luck everyone

Just wanted to throw out some good luck for everyone competing in the tourney this Saturday. Personally I just purchased a Hobie PA 14 off of this very forum but I am not even close to ready to get into a tourney. Anyways, I will be at the weigh-in to hopefully meet some of you guys that have this sport down to a science by now. If you see a big white guy with a small Asian woman and 3 little boys, come say hi because I would love to meet a few kayak fishing buddies. With all that said, catch em up gentlemen, and ladies if any.

Gonna be a light N breeze all night. Should make for decent launch conditions. It's gonna shift to a fairly stiff E wind throughout the day. Partly cloudy, no rain, high of 80. Sounds pretty good to me :)
