We are a sea tribe who paddle long boats in rough water conditions in the northwest of Spain.
Our playground is the chaotic frontier among the mighty Atlantic ocean and the ancient Galician coast, where it was said, in the ancient times, that the world ended and the maps showed terrifying creatures……
Rockgardens, ocean surfing, currents, cliffs, big swells, uninhabited islands, gale force storms………… Once you have been paddling between dragons, is not possible to paddle like a human again .
It is a one way trip.

In addition, we got the custom option of four small attachment loops to be able to secure in it a nautical chart, GPS, deck bags, etc...

And we decide to custom the neoprene color in some of them.

Let there be no mistake.
You must never abandon your boat.
Swimming to shore is the very last option to take in consideration.
IS NOT THE SAME ....
|It's a long way to shore.......|
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTOR
DRESSING TO PADDLE OR TO SWIM
DON’T LOSE YOUR PADDLE!!
|You can also intimidate anglers|

CHOOSING THE RIGHT WAY
In adition, if the wave breaks and do not wash the sand, it can hide a dangerous hydraulic with a great body of water returning to the ocean in the botton and the waves arriving to the beach in the surface.
|Follow the dark brick road......|
|Grab firmly to resist the push|
|In white waters our paddle may be our best friend to stand in a safe place|
|only one more hard fight....|
|Don't try to go out there......|
|...look for safer options|
|We must look carefully the shore, safe and easy places to our landing may be hidden near hard and dangerous spots.|
|In 2-feet waves, this would be a bad idea|
If we can get to shore going through shallow waters, we will do it keeping a defensive position, don’t try to walk over the bottom stones, with the incoming waves your feet can become trapped and it can result in serious knees and ankles injuries, and possibly we would end up by falling head first in the stones.
