The ferry between Aarhus and Odden has a tendency to make big waves in and around the bay of Aarhus. It passed us by when we reached the kayaks again. Freek, who did not want to wait for the waves to come in, quickly pulled out the kayak and went in.
Just as he sat down and took a stroke, the first wave came crashing in. By the third wave he was out of the surfzone, but then had to sit and wait for the rest of us, so we could assist him in emptying his kayak.
