      Great session. Tide coming in (high tide about 1.25 hours after finish). Wind less than 5 km/hr and waves 0.2-0.5m/4 to 8 second intervals- Beaufort Scale: 1. Started about 30 minutes before sunset. Improving stroke but still need to start the recovery sooner by beginning to pull the paddle out of the water once I reach my toes. Still too much "drag" past my feet.
      Caught a few small waves before sprinting home. Perfect weather: about 28C /Humidity about 50%. Pictures from GoPro Video Still Captures. Used the GP video to analyze stroke. Did a warm-down across to the fishing village area before a 90% sprint back to "finish line" jetty.

      Again paddled against incoming tide and small swell (0.25-0.75 meters) 6-10 second intervals.
      Actual session time (stopped time during photo, exploration and surf activities): 130 minutes.

      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.
