Mini tsunamis – a daily affair at Labrador park

Ferry wakes!

The power behind these waves flooded my little sit-on-top kayak when I was paddling off Labrador park.

Its coming in! Run if you can, take it bow on if you cant.

Was exploring the park on foot and decided to get a footage of these waves that swamped me. These are about 0.5m peak to bottom.

Starting to peak!

On that kayaking day, I had been stern to waves on the 1st hit, and bow to waves on the 2nd set of waves.

Mini surf

If I wasnt careful enuf to watch for them, I could have been side swiped by the waves and capsized!

Whooossshhhhhh!! Crashed...

Conclusions…  Must be prepared for the worst conditions when I kayak. Everything on my sit-on-top must float! 

Floating key fob

In the event of a capsize, I still can retrieve my paddle(floats), crocs(floats), camera(inside a water-tight tupperware and floats because there is air in it)… opps, my favorite hat wont float! Am going to make a float clip for it! Will really hate losing my hat by being careless! Already have a float for my keys

Plus, dont bring anything unneccessary. … like iPxxx. They sink and they die when wet! Let nature be your music. .. btw, I have 2 drowned phones! from previous kayaking days. Learned it the hard way!

So guys, have fun and dont lose anything!
