Off for a Surf Ski Session 0

Sunny Surf Ski Session

Having worked loads of extra hours last week, I was owed a bit of time. So, when the sun came out on Wednesday afternoon and the wind dropped off I couldn’t resist finishing work an hour early so that I could get out for a lovely relaxing surf ski paddle on the estuary. I met...
