Stunning day to Sea Kayak to Wembury for a surf


What a stunning day. We launched from Newton Ferrers on the mill pond smooth water and rode the tide out to the sea, where conditions picked up to a rolling swell. We headed to Wembury where we had lunch before enjoying a surf session. Heading back to the calm of the Yealm estuary we practiced some more rescues before heading home. Great day
