At first glance the choppy 1-3ft waves, the chilly northeasterly winds, 54 degree water temp and an air temp struggling to match the water temp appeared to be ominous signs for an unpleasant swim.  Much to the Kru's delight the conditions were more playful than threatening.  The brave Kru members who forged ahead despite their initial perceptions and walked the plank were actually treated to a rather pleasant character building swim.

1 to 3 foot chop? Pisch. More like 10 to 30 foot waves on the Kahuna Scale.
