Portland Harbour - 16th August 2008

Introduced my son Gavin (age 7) to his first kayak session. He played about for 15 minutes in some very small surf paddling forwards and trying to keep the boat straight with backward strokes. He liked it when waves pushed him towards the beach, and he didn't fall in. Bit too windy (F5?) to be able to do much with, I was standing alongside him and helping him paddle out and to straighten the boat up. Gavin was paddling my old Rotobat. I had a quick play for 15 minutes in the Rotobat afterwards while Gavin played with a foam belly board. I hope I didn't put him off! He seemed quite happy afterwards and was talking about it when he got home.
