We took Isaac kayaking in Ipswich Bay at the south end of Plum Island. He did great. He took a number of rides on some Isaac sized surf and learned to edge into the wave. His kayak control is still limited, but he edged enough that he never flipped.
We made progress on wet exits. Emilie got him to go upside down while holding her hands and then come back up. On a 2nd go, he rolled over with her hands for 3 seconds and then exited the boat upside down when she let go.
We padded out a foot brace for Isaac in Emilie’s kayak. As a result, his posture was much better and his balance and control more effective. He is also getting better with the paddle.
Emilie went hunting for surf on the sandbars at the mouth of Plum Island sound. She found a few waves and rides and a few other kayakers also seeking surf. Contrary to what we remember, at low tide the sandbars never surfaced.
