Milford --> Takapuna ----> MILF on the Toothpick

Milford
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Long distance
10:30 am - 11:30 am Tuesday. April 19. 2016
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: glassy Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: - Falling.

Nice morning for a hack so did the Milf to Taka thing. There was a typical slight chop which was a test on the 24.5" wide race board. I had to concentrate the whole time and didn't feel I was really stable to put full power into each stroke. I went overboard in the flattest stretch of water too with was annoying - as I won't like doing that in winter! Tried out my Naish paddle as it is 1.5" shorter than my ASP paddle and I felt the shorter paddle allowed a higher cadence which I needed to keep my balance on that toothpick. Still managed to get 8.3 kph average speed for most of it and I wasn't near race pace which shows this thing is quick for me...but is it too tippy to be a downwind board?
