This is a video of our ocean paddle when Sandy passed by on Saturday. It's just one camera on my head, and illustrates our approach to get out of our comfort zone and stay safe, not a Red Bull commercial. Winds were 20knots gusting higher, and swells were about 6' - 8' with a cross wind so spaced out 14 seconds. We launched at one end of the beach where it was manageable to avoid the big waves but ran into some 5-6' then landed through about the same, although they were dumping hard. The wide angle lens makes things distant and small, but was fine for us. Like I said it's no Red Bull commercial and anything more than this would be too risky for my skill.
Stay safe in the NE coast. A cat 1 can produce a heavy flooding, power outages, and downed trees. Nothing to take lightly, especially if you have to deal with it.
Anyway here is the video. You can change the quality settings for however fast your connection is. Hope someone might appreciate our approach to get out and stay safe. We had a blast out there, and hey, if you are down this way around Charleston there are great paddling opportunities.
PS.. feel free to add pictures, video, or comments, or links about Sandy.
Sorry about the free royalty free music! It's the best I could do, lol.
