Mitchell Getz (OKINAWA SUP) at Sprint to Maeda Cliffs / Some Surfing / Return 02/09/2015
Session date : 02/09/2015
Gear used : Starboard Race Open Ocean Brushed Carbon & Surftech Laird
1.7km sprint to the cliffs (due west) against incoming tide and very small swell (0.15-0.5meters) 8-12 seconds apart. Less than 5kph headwind. Had to dodge five kayaks filled with young female tourists (18-25yrs. old) during last 200 meters of sprint to cliffs. Spent about 25 minutes trying to catch some increasing swells after sunset but heading home before the skies grew completely dark. Incoming tide made for an easier sprint paddle home.
