Words and Photos By Paul Lebowitz
Ready for the hard part? Launching through surf is easy, just point and go, go, go. The worst crashes come on the dismount.
Fortunately we have big water kayak angler Jim Sammons to drop some knowledge on us on how to achieve a safe surf kayak landing. If you get nothing else, get this: deliberately surfing in is for suckers and the exceptionally salty. Sammons gets to shred by the end of the video. Scroll down for a sequence of photos showing Jim keeping it safe.
