On a recent paddle on my loaner Stellar SR I had a first-time experience of falling off the ski. My re-entry was awful and fortunately I had another paddler there to help a touch, but it worried me that I didn’t quite know how to get back on. So I turned to Team Fat Paddler member and Sydneysurfski.com blogger Nat, since he’s fallen off his surfski more than any other man on the face of the planet! Now he’s no expert of course, and gracefulness has never been his speciality, but he is effective!
So there you have it, a demo of The Bradford Method of fat blokes surfski re-entry. I expect I’m going to get lots of practice myself very soon! Cheers, FP
