Nothing but Glides- downwind video without a single paddle stroke

What's the best part about downwinders?  The glides!

So I made this video without a single paddle stroke, just bump riding and gliding. A fun evening Hawaii Kai to Waikiki downwinder with my buddy Peter Shepherd from Sydney.  Peter is on a 17' SIC Bullet V3 and I'm on the 14' x 28" Bump Rider.  It's great to be able to get off work a bit early to do a downwinder during the busy holiday season.

Happy Holidays everyone!
