Not a great DW run with the swell going 45 degree one way and the wind doing the opposite 45 but a good test of how stable the Sidewinder can be in testing conditions.
I was tossed from left to right many times and stayed dry for 90% of the run, had to slow down for the last paddler to make sure she was ok then came in slow with another paddler to help out a bit more. The runs were short but the more I ride Jimmy the more impressed I am with the board it really is very stable for a 27 wide.
Tried a different spot for the GoPro, just cable tied it to my Camelbak strap and away you go.

Yep more wind would have made it a bit easier getting a runner but what can you do hey? Went for another paddle after Go.f this morning in on shore winds to keep the balance going, got a few runners/shore break their which was good practice.

Hi Dave,
That's great that you are enjoying your Sidewinder more & more... I had a great ocean paddle on mine this morning & caught some super fun waves on it & love the way it surfs.... Great videos...

Great morning on the water with the training crew & easing back into training after a break since M2O.... Perfect conditions for the Sidewinder's with an early onshore wind & good runners off the point to the beach...
