Rouge wave, humping big ones!

Fantastic day spent with Stu at First Wave. Thought we ought to know what we are doing out on the water.

Learnt lots in the classroom and also how to manover the boat in harbour. We also learnt how to handle the craft, which was good too.

Highlight of the day though and needs to be told was when Stu decided to see how the boat handled and nose dived into a massive wave soaking us to the bone!

Top bloke is Stu and well worth the money finding out about the water

(Just wear waterproofs )

Sheepish

Yup it was grade A cockup. I seem to remeber saying about half an hour before that if you handled the boat properly you rarely get wet.

In day 2 we will be learning how to run aground!
