sure wish I had an easy way to practice in real conditions. We rarely have more than 15kt winds and those days often happen while I'm at work or I can't find others to join. In addition to the mechanical aspects of how rough water can change things there is also the mental state that can cause one to do stupid things they wouldn't do when it's calm. It's nice being able to paddle all year around but it would be nice to have rough water without a major trip.
