Where to paddle - GUIDE

IF THE WINDS ARE NORTHERLY, MEANING COMING FROM THE NORTH HEADING SOUTH YOU A BEST TO PADDLE SOMEWHERE FACING SOUTH, SAME GOES FOR OTHER LOCATIONS, IF THE BEACH FACES TO THE NORTH THEN A SOUTHERLY WIND WILL BE NICEST.

EXAMPLE, WHEN YOU GO TO THE BEACH AND IT’S BLOWING WESTERLY IT’S USUALLY A LOT NICER THAN WHEN THE WINDS ARE “ONSHORE” AND ITS “CHOPPY” AND COLD.

ON A WEATHER MAP SUCH AS WILLY WEATHER FOR THE LOCAL AREA YOU CAN SCROLL OVER THE ARROW THAT TELLS YOU DIRECTION, STRENGTH AND TIME.

PLEASE DO NOT PADDLE WHEN BLOWING OVER 18 KNOTS OR 33KM/H WHEN YOU ARE STILL NEW TO THE SPORT, ALWAYS WEAR A LEGROPE!
