With mild winter weather and moderates swells I spent a few days playing in the rocks along the coast near Ft. Bragg. I was lucky enough to be shown the area by an old So Cal paddling buddy Jeff Laxier who has now started a kayak tour and instruction company in the area (Liquid Fusion Kayaking). Jeff and his partner Cate, and a few of their friends, joined me for three days in the surf and surge. Sometimes we took out whitewater kayaks and sometimes the long boats. For you whitewater enthusiasts who complain about a lack of excitement in sea kayaking check out the videos.
Day one: little boat action
