    Paddle in the Hudson

    This is my 4th Summer paddling in the Hudson.
    (though I couldn't paddle much last year due to NYCM training)
    Hope to do a tour or two before the water gets too cold.
    I paddle with Manhattan Kayak Company.
    Is there any other paddler in NYC area?

    Embracing for tsunami.
    Those big cruises create some massive wakes.

    Hudson is very busy waterway.
    There are big cruises, water taxis, private boats, yachts, freight ships...
    It definitely gets pretty dicey time to time.
    When there's a sizable ship passes by, we normally huddle together and try to get out of the way.

    Once I paddle crossed the Hudson to New Jersey and back on a SUP, it was one of the scariest moments.
    I felt like I was playing Frogger on the water.

    Next time you come through NYC April to October and interested in SUP or Kayak on the Hudson, let me know!

    Yeah, I saw that story in the news tonight. Hope they are going to be ok. I was thinking how crazy that must have been for you to SUP across to NJ down that way. I live further north and it's busy with all the new bridge stuff going on.

    Safe travels to you.

    Paddle in the Hudson

    Thank you.

    I'm not surprised and won't stop me from paddling.
    (anything can happen to anybody over literally doing nothing)
    But my friend who paddles with me is pretty shaken up.
    Especially we were at the same spot only two days ago.

    I may lost my paddling buddy.

    Paddle in the Hudson

    Okay, now things got really weird.
    This is Jay who I toured many times and he was our tour guide two nights ago.
    Wow...
    I can't believe he was the one who was leading this group.
    I know for fact he's a very safety comes first kinda guy.
    Glad he's still alive.

    I guided the Hudson for 5 years, but that was about 250 miles upstream from you.

    There were 11 kayakers total and 4 got hurt.
    Jay was the tour guide who got hurt the most.
    (severe compound fracture of his arm, partially severed)

    Still under investigation.
    But they think the ferry was pulling out with extremely bright conditions from the sun to the west and didn't see the kayakers.
    Ran them over and some got crash or the wake capsized them.

    Probably last kayak tour this year.
    Water temperature is still warm, so might throw another SUP tour instead
    Thought I could share different view of Manhattan.
