    Om kajakers framdrivning

    Jag har fått flera propåer genom åren om effektivare sätt att driva fram havskajaker, senast nu för ett par veckor sedan. ”Jag har paddlat havskajak i flera år men fick möjlighet att testa en sit on top trampdriven fiskekajak. Och min spontana reaktion var: detta skulle vara smidigt i en havskajak. Nu skulle inte dessa […]

    Boundary Waters Canoe Area Protected!

    We received good news today about the fight to protect the Boundary Waters from toxic sulfide mining pollution. They completed the two-year study about this type of mining and how it could affect the BWCA. They found that due to the potential harm that there was justification for a twenty-year moratorium on federal lands within … Boundary Waters Canoe Area Protected!

    North Canoe: Very Slow and Bad Travelling

    57 NICOLAS JONOK

    Jonok significa navegante, marinero en lengua teguelche. Es difícil describir a qué se dedica Nicolás y este es otro de esos capítulos en los que podríamos haber seguido hablando y hablando y hablando y nos habrían quedado cosas por hablar. Y no sólo porque Nicolás sea Argentino (topicazo al canto) ni porque a nosotros nos vaya el palique más que a un tontico una tiza. Y más si es de temas de kayaks. Sino porque Nicolás ha pasado a ser nuestro ídolo es un sólo capítulo. Nació como piragüista, se subió a las montañas y vio por dónde quería llevar

    Årspaddlingspremiär 2023

    Äntligen blev det paddling 2023. Bättre aldrig än sent eller hur var det nu? I morse tänkte vi tanken på en sväng till Hallands väderö men sen försvann lasta och köra-suget. Blev en go vintrig promenad hemomkring på förmiddagen. På eftermiddagen in till Skälderviken & ÄSSS. Runt nollan också svaga vindar. Soligt och finfint.

    January 19th – Discovery Island (#4

    I paddled out to Cadboro Point to join Dan and Paulo for a paddle around the islands. conditions were very nice – no current to speak of and no lumpy water! I could see the silhouette of Mt Rainier in the distance as I set out as well as a 22 degree ice halo around […]

    56 GONZAAVENTURAS

    Nuevo año, nueva temporada y nueva entrevista a un aventurero autodidacta profesional. Como buen aventurero multiformato le pillamos en un sitio con cobertura justita. La suficiente para que la llamada sea de voz sólo. Pero no tanta como para poder colgar el capítulo con imagen. Si le queréis ver la cara podéis hacerlo en cualquiera de los muchos videos de su canal de YouTube. Nos cuenta que empezó viajando en bici desde Londres hasta Madrid. Hizo y contó viajes en moto, sin ser motero. Camperizó un utilitario y recorrió 9 países de Europa. Una ensalada de salmón le tumbó a

    January 17 – Discovery Island (#3)

    Dan and I went for a morning paddle around the islands (my first of the year!). Though there was not much wind the water was fairly lumpy until we came back around Commodore Point on Discovery and headed back for Cadboro bay. It was nice to see some marbled and ancient murrelets as well as […]

    Dorothea and I led a club clinic to practice sea kayaking in currents. The five participants all made great progress over the morning. At the end I took a short detour to play in the lumpy water at Cadboro Point Light. Also on the way back we saw Paulo, Dan and Ellen paddling back from […]

    90-talskrisen, räntechocken och bankkraschen

    Sveriges största podd om vår tids mest spännande och viktiga händelser. P3-dokumentär gör många lyssningsvärda poddar tycker jag. Senast lyssnade är den ovan ”90-talskrisen, räntechocken och bankkraschen” som är från 2008 men nypublicerad och omklippt nyligen med bättre ljud. Klart intressant lyssning nu när vi har lite ökade priser, räntor med mera. I podden nämner … Läs mer… Inlägget 90-talskrisen, räntechocken och bankkraschen dök först upp på kajak.nu.

    Vélo de Montagne, le meilleur de 2022 (2)

    Avec la persistance des conditions chaudes et sèches, il a été possible une fois de plus de faire durer la saison jusqu’à fin 2022. Un peu de Haut Verdon, de Var, de Ligurie en Italie, et de station à Auron, avec parfois l’apparition de neige, aussi soudaine qu’éphémère, mais tellement photogénique.

Y tampoco le da tiempo a actualizar su página web. Una está apenas empezando su carrera deportiva que esperamos sea larga y fructífera. Otra ha preparado todo el camino para que las siguientes puedan recorrerlo con la normalidad necesaria. Compartimos con una de ellas las vicisitudes del supraespinoso.
