Worked with another paddling friend on beach launches at Ocean Shores. A challenging, flat and wide beach with tricky wave patterns / cross swell, a brisk 7 second period, quartering wind at 15, and a fast offshore current that will make your ski go for a solo run if you loose it (instead of heading back to the beach). The backline seemed to stretch forever, and had dumping waves due to hidden sandbars. Spicy, but fun day out.
