Did a little kayak trip in lower Dog River this afternoon. On the way back turbulence from a passing front kicked up the winds from nothing to 20 mph instantly. The waves went from 3 inches to a foot chop in a minute. If I had been in a regular Paddle kayak I would've been struggling hard to make it back. Thankfully I was in my Hobie pedal boat and the wind did not play a big factor going into the 20 mph wind. I love my Hobie pedal kayak!
This is just a reminder to kayakers - when you're out on open waters wind and waves can change in an instant. Be Prepared for the worst every time you go out kayaking.
