Re: Rough weather kayaking

If you go out alone and it is windy use a SUP or surfboard leash to make sure if you do go over, you are attached to the yak. This is especially important where there is a lot of current. Make sure your paddle is also attached and never let go of the paddle. Where ever your head goes the body follows. Keep your head over the center of gravity at all times. Sink your weight through your ass to lower your center of gravity. I live on the Oregon coast and fish the nearshore where a lot of commercial fisherman and sportfisherman die each year. Ultimately it is time in the boat. Just make sure you stay attached to the boat or it will sail off without you.
