Who was out paddling this weekend?

Sunday, 03 September 2006

Well, we watched the weather bouy for Lake Ontario and this past weekend caught the tail end of Hurricane Ernesto moving into Southern Ontario. Liz Burnside, Eric Oggard and I decided to take advantage of the wind and get out and some surfing.

The wave height was a consistent 5 feet with larger waves at 7 feet. No, it wasn’t one of those "the fish was this big" type wave height measurements. We have been practicing Nick Schade’s article here on how to accurately determine wave height .

It was big water and we got trashed several times. Quite fun. One time I was going to roll up but thought, "I will just wait until the shaking stops before attempting."

We posted a bunch of photos on our photo gallery here.
