Like Farther like Son

With a flat sea and near perfect conditions for messing about in the kayak with my son Jack (6) we headed out after tea his confidence on the water has come on great since his first time out last year.
We started off as always with him getting well and truly wet and swimming in his PFD and wetsuit which he couldn't get enough of this time a bit of a change from last year as he was afraid of the small waves not any more though

Then it was time for some serious paddling   :cheesy: and some expert guidance  :whistle: :laugh:

Then I put him through his paces at self rescues which he just about managed with a bit of a helping shove from Dad

He also got the hang of edging in this photo or was it the paddle was a bit to heavy for him  :laugh:

He even had the balance to have a go at standing up in the Dorado after seeing dad do it first time I have managed to do this without going for a swim  :yes: and just like Dad he took it all in his stride

Then we had a race back to shore

I think this photo summed up Jack's night well

I think he is hooked now after telling his Mam how "AWESOME" it was
