With perfect weather and calm seas I took the opportunity to paddle over to Second Rock. It’s on the edge of the shoals and except for the calmest days it’s impossible to get through the swell over the surrounding reef and it’s usually awash.

Why he chose such a remote location is anyones guess, but it a pretty cool spot to spend a day or two.
