"...dude, the most amazing sea cave in North America is out here, it has five entrances, a long tunnel, and a huge room with a skylight that has a waterfall pouring into it! there is just so much noise and energy sloshing around, it will blow your mind!..."
....I still mostly come up empty handed. Time and time again I've encountered the baffling phenomenon of class V boaters who are freaked out by the surf. This week I persuaded Brandon to strap on some pads and follow me around Neah-Kah-Nie. The surf never quite dropped low enough for us to really get up close and personal with the tight slots and the good caves, although we did pass by a few insanely clean surf breaks that had me nearly in tears that I wasn't in a glass boat with fins. Oh well, it was a beautiful paddle anyways and always nice to do something different.
