Downwind 12 km Prone

Finding the time and the right time for this one was a dual challenge for September. Sure enough the morning I was to go the winds changed. I changed course. (It often doesn’t matter - wind, wave apps, environment Canada or how obsessively I check.) Winds didn’t make for a fast run but were steady and stayed the course. Water - total cooperation with only a few intermittent swells that made it fun. Smooth right at the end. A beautiful run in open water (my favourite) on Lake O in a rare even tempered mood.

All 10 Challenges Done
But not always so easy on a Prone. End of DW 12 km I switched boards with my SUP buddy and after paddling 1.5 km on my prone he said, “you can’t stay in this position for very long. Prone is hard.” (And he’s a fit Iron Man😂) Yup it can be. Glad he said it. (And feeling shamelessly chuffed!). But it’s where I want to be… close to the water. ❤️

Best of luck everyone for the final challenges🤞
