  Not in surf
  Posted by: Celia on Feb-15-13 12:28 PM (EST)
 

There is maybe one person I know who has the presence of mind and physical strength to do this in surf. I was talking about less challenging conditions, bumpy water that could create a capsize without the added thrill of undertow and rip currents and large rock surfaces coming at you.

And there is what you mention - by the time a paddle is secure enough to make it thru the surf, there is a decent chance it'll be a bear to rip off in the time you need.

My own limited time in surf resolved to only one paddle solution - hang onto your primary paddle no matter what.
