Made this little short film for the Bellingham Paddling Film Festival. Gusting wind to 50 mph, and beam seas to 6'. I ordered the "Spicy. Pony. Head."

Just back from my three day surfski touring trip in the San Juan Islands. This is a spicy little segment from my voyage, crossing from Sucia to Orcas Island in some pretty rough water.
One of the questions I am asked most about using a V12 as a touring platform: "How does it do in rough water?" Pretty darn well I'd say. This is not to say that what you see above is easy - it wasn't. It's a bit like juggling on a tight rope while a silver back gorilla throws punches at you. But the long range speed advantages of a touring in a fast surfski are very distinct.
