Crossing the "big water" chop with boat wakes was interesting... Yak and I did just fine. I am pretty darn sore today.
Could not keep up with the skinny sit in yaks, even matching paddle strokes as best as i could. That was to be expected though.
I cant find much wrong with the Tarpon. Seat does wear on me after a bit though.

Pretty cool!!!! I saw your pictures on meetup. I had signed up to go, but had to cancel at the last moment. Really nice group of people and I have nothing but good things to say about Steve. Looks like I missed a good paddle. Just wondering, were you able to keep up with the Pungo? I currently fish out of mine, but have been thinking about getting a Tarpon, so I was wondering how they compare, speed wise.

Yes, that was me in the Lime Green Trapon 120.

I could not keep up with any of the Sit in Yaks smile
OTOH, I dont have much paddling muscles, etc.
fwiw, I am using a Werner Skagit paddle.

Suprisingly was not overly sore from it on Sunday.

Skagit is a good paddle, paddles really do make a difference. Good to know about keeping up with the SINKs, I really wanted a Tarpon when I got my first kayak, but I wanted a sit in that I could fish out of and paddle with a group and not get dropped so I went with the Pungo. As far as technique goes, Steve has some really informative clinics, but if you don't want to go that route I find the Sunday group paddles to be really helpful since there are always people there who can give you pointers to help you improve your strokes. See you out on the water.
