Took my i12 out for a paddle on Sunday afternoon when the water was white capping with three to five foot wind waves. Damn fun. [vimeo]http://vimeo.com/38402834[/vimeo]

I could hardly imagine that paddling would be any fun in those conditions, especially with an inflatable! Thankfully you were fooling us and were really PEDALING! :wink: I also like the feeling of solid control you get with the pedals when a good wind blows in. 8)

Ah quite true! I often refer to kayaking as going for a paddle. It might take a while to retrain my brain. Or perhaps I should simply use the paddle occasionally to stay in touch with my traditional kayaking side. :D

On another note, anyone know the proper magic to make the vimeo embed work? tried it a few different ways with no luck. *headscratch*

Love your video. Watched it twice after downing a bottle of cider following a long day at work. Got me very excited about getting onto the water next time surfs up. I've had my i12s a couple of weeks. It feels like a magical, mythical beast from Avatar. I've been craving since I was a kid. Was out last weekend on a very still River Thames. Not quite the thrill of your outing. In fact, almost the dead opposite, but I'll share any way ;0) Happy kayaking!

There's something fishy about your forecast here Tony, and I am wading to see if it's right. :wink:
