kayak surfers

Post by Atomic-Chomik »

Is there some kind of law that tells Kayak surfers it is illegal to surf around other people. After getting hit and runover by one in the surf, I'm out for at least a month+ past the two weeks I've already been out and i'm bitter.
Also, the Oilers are gonna make a run for the cup this year right?

There are laws that ensure kayakers on the point are safe and do not strike surfers, these include carrying 15m of buoyant heaving line to pull the now unconscious surfer back to shore and a water tight flashlight to clearly identify their location to surfers who wish to stay conscious prior to them running them over. https://tc.canada.ca/en/marine-transpor ... ered-craft

Yes, but it'll come with an asterisk.

How many fin boxes can you knock out of a board before its not worth fixing anymore? Asking for a friend.

Depends on the color of the board. Black = less, pink = more.

Why does the THE Red Baron, the windsurfing wizard from Uclulet who can toss a windsurf board or a beer like no other, use an avatar that looks like a teenage mutant ninja turtle?

If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
