I'm a 60 year old who grew up surfing Cocoa Beach florida on a surf board. Now in my kayak I am still riding the waves whenever I get a chance. Your article on Kayak surfing a touring Kayak was right on. I think the most important lesson you mentioned is those sneaker sets and how to always be paying attention to the waves approaching your area. Sneaker sets can come upon you even on small days. They are fun and exciting if you are paying attention and you catch them instead of them catching you. Great story. Great lesson. Paddle On!

This was a very good,accurate article, but I have a history of staying with the wave after it breaks and find myself starting to broach in the resulting soup (this happens most often in dumping surf where the wave meets a steep beach and the waves collapse quite quickly).
