It hurts!

Experimenting different kayak rolls stays fun. But don't forget to check first how deep the water is! Especially on a rocky beach. Stupid me!

Hi Bonnie, Hi Douglas!
In Dutch we say: "au!"
The crash was a bit painfull, but the bloody rock did hurt my ego more ;-( Grrrr...
Lesson learned...

We sympathize with you from the other side of the Atlantic. Jamaica Bay boaters.

Well, one of these days I will be admitting to how I should have listened to you.

I'm fine, but it was really weird to go to do a 2nd hand roll and end up with my head stuck in the mud on the bottom of the pond.

I'd checked before the first one but the distance the boat "walked" in that one took me into shallow water!

Hi Bonnie!

I feel compassion with you: mud ruins any hairstyle...

More people should listen to me ;-)
