I went for an afternoon "run" around caddy bay in the surf ski using my Northern Lights "Aleut-inspired" paddle to see how it worked and felt. I was able to keep up a good average pace with it (7.4 kph) and it felt good to paddle with. From the track, i can see that I had the current behind me from Cadboro Point to Jemmy Jones Island and the wind in my face as I paddled back into the bay. Along the way, I saw Canada geese, American wigeon, bufflehead, Scaup, Northern Pintail, Great blue heron, and hooded mergansers.
