Have you tested this? I've always figured that although paddling a
longboard may be speedy, that paddling a shortboard is much slower than
swimming and you'd be lucky to make 1/2 mile/hr. Then there are those
pesky 1.5 knot tides to deal with sometimes.

I agree that in most circumstances we should eventually be able to
paddle in, but conditions can make it much more difficult.

  from 3rd and probably WAS near Coyote at that time.
