The Ria d’Etel has been mentioned several times in this blog …. just three weeks ago we paddled from the source to Pont Lorois and back, this week it was a ‘good’ spring tide.
This time we took the playboats to Pont Lorois, these tidal rapids are a great playspot. Whilst a river changes with increases or decreases with volume, they rarely change as quickly as tidal rapids, as food for thought …. in the following photos imagine the current flowing in the opposite direction ?
In fact it does on these tidal rapids ! … and rivers do not do that !
The next photo is the same spot viewed from the opposite side, the tidal height is a little lower
Behind the big ‘Rounded’ rock is another playspot …. the video is ‘under construction’ and will be posted soon
This tide was particularly high and the results here were quite different to usual, very ‘grippy’ stoppers and huge volumes of water … Jersey kayaks explains here …
Another great day on the water
