So, a Marpe practice tomorrow, but no coaches :( though there will be Anne and Cat who are good paddlers and I can ask for advice.

I am going to concentrate on coming down a little chute with a V-shaped wave at the bottom and coming off it on that clear V above the wave by surfing off it a bit. At least half the time will therefore be spent paddling up again to have another go. So this will be interval training too.

Goal: do it like it ought to feel, like flying then a handbrake turn.

Success! With help from Cat, broke out on V of wave. Secret is to get your bum going through the bit where you want to break out, already at full speed - dig paddle in as you are going sideways through the gap. Also managed to do the other side which has 2 streams coming through it and a narrow eddy between them, like Stone - confidence returning!
