KAYAK ADVENTURES: A Step Towards Success

The surf was big, and I was scared. Fifteen kayak fishermen paddled out on a relatively calm Cape Vidal bay but huge waves rumbled and foamed on the sandbank in front of us. To reach the fishing waters we had to first run the gauntlet of breaking waves, churning sand and energetic foamies, but we just knew that the dorado were eagerly awaiting our baits and there was no other way to get to them.
I had not braved the surf since my wife fell and broke her leg at Cape Vidal nearly a year ago and had lost my confidence to take on big surf. I had hoped for a calm day to ease back into things but that was not to be. It did not help to learn that the previous day at St Lucia a ski-boat capsized in rough conditions. The four women and the skipper survived but not without injuries.
