Onsdagspddling med plask

Onsdagspddling med plask

Go onsdagspaddling med ÄSSS igår. Tokvärmen lugnade sig lite så vid 18-snåret var det ganska lagom. Blev en go tur ut till Magnarp för åtta paddlare. Nån var iland och badade i Magnarp, de flesta var iland och strandhängde lite och jag & Pia tömde våra kajaker på vatten efter lite plask och lek. Kul … Läs mer…

How the Siskiwit LV Happened

How the Siskiwit LV Happened

Recently I was looking through old photos and came across a few of my old kayak building photos. I’ve pretty much given up building canoes and kayaks for the moment, but I do have a few that I would like to build in the future. It’s interesting looking back from a perspective of 18 years …

Handdukstork på kvartsfart

Handdukstork på kvartsfart

Vi har en elektrisk handdukstork i vårt badrum. Den är ditsatt 1991 skulle jag tro, då huset byggdes. Den satt i alla fall där när vi flyttade hit 1996. Den har nästan alltid varit på. En sådan handdukstork drar 100W, det kan tyckas lite men det blir ändå lite av det om den alltid är … Läs mer…

Omàmìwininì (Algonquin) Birchbark Canoe Build – Algonquin Park

Omàmìwininì (Algonquin) Birchbark Canoe Build – Algonquin Park

 I had the privilege of checking out a rare birchbark canoe build taking part in Algonquin Park. The event, taking place on unceded Algonquin Territory, was sponsored in part by Algonquin Outfitters and featured canoe builder Chuck Commanda. I visited the build site on the 2nd morning of the event. It was taking place under the shaded […]

Vindruva

Vindruva

Vi har två vindruvsplantor sedan några år. De har stått i varsin ganska för liten kruka och inte fått så mycket kärlek. Vi tyckte inte de fick plats i vår förra mindre tunnel. Nu med större odlingstunnel fick de dock plats. De var bland de första vi planterade när tunneln kom upp. Med lite mer … Läs mer…

How to Install a Northstar Solo Kneeling Drop

How to Install a Northstar Solo Kneeling Drop

Guest post from Cliff Fawcett. If you’re wondering how to install a Northstar solo kneeling drop, this is how I did it. I purchased my Northstar Northwind Solo with the standard (sitting) seat drops. If you’re not familiar with the term, the seat drop is the piece between the gunwale and the seat that determines …

Terre-Neuve, paradis du kayak de mer ?

« The rock« , « the last wilderness« , voici les qualificatifs les plus souvent utilisés par les habitants de Terre-Neuve pour désigner leur île. De quoi intriguer le kayakiste avide de grands espaces sauvages. Newfoundland and Labrador is a paddler’s paradise (*). Alors vrai ou faux ? Allons y voir !

Baking for 1 hour at 300°

Baking for 1 hour at 300°

Four pieces of cake!On the water is probably the best way to ‘escape’ the heat wave.Today I did the following:1. Tidal Planning2. Crossing3. Circumnavigation4. Bimble along the coastPaddling out of Church Bay for exactly one hour at 300 degrees. That brought me about 100 metres short of dead-on hitting the south-western tip of the Skerries. My tidal planning had not adjusted for my slow(er) paddling speed. Using the eddies and against the current I completed a circumnavigaton of the Skerries.I was thinking of continuing to Cemlyn via West Mouse and have my break at Furlough’s. I decided however to stick to my conservative plan and headed for the rocks under the lighthouse.Pulling my kayak out, I was a bit puzzled with how high the water already was. According to my watch local HW should still be more than two hours away…I hate paddling straight back from the Skerries to Church Bay. My memories of this is that this is a very boring crossing that allways tends to take much longer than expected. And little chance for any excitement along the way. Ferry gliding back to Carmel Head dropped me right over the Platters reef and into the tail end of the race off Carmel Head.Reaching the Anglesey coast, I was a bit puzzled with how low the water already was…Following the coastline into Church Bay. The hardest part of the day was pulling my kayak trolley up the steep path from the beach back to my car.As it turned-out, my watch, that ‘lives’ attached to my buyoancy-aid, was one hour off; not set for daylight savings-time… That explained the water levels. Allways some room for improvement; no 5 stars for me today 😉

Mälaren en söndag

Väldigt tät båttrafik vid farlederna och sup brädor överallt, är verkligen en explosiv ökningen av sådana. Även kayakomat kajaker har börjat bli vanliga. Det fina vädret lockar otroligt mycket folk till stränderna och sjön.

Paddling hemifrån Örnsberg

ibland är det svårt att få tid att paddla! Barn mm. Då kan man smita ner på kvällen på vattnet nedanför där vi bor för en kvällstur.

Sjösättningar kanadensare

Sjösättningar kanadensare

Det har sjösatts många kajaker och kanadensare under sommaren, men eftersom jag har haft mycket annat för mig (paddlat och hållit kurser på kajakträffar t ex) har det varit glest mellan uppdateringar. Men nu ska jag bättra mig. Här är tre kanadensare som blivit färdiga och sjösatta under sommaren.

Igår tog vi en sväng på Skälderviken i solnedgången. Alltid gött att fånga finljuset.

Dog Days

Dog Days

According to my phone (and my phone literally knows everything), the “dog days of summer” have been a seasonal feature since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The name refers to this particular time of year, when Sirius, the dog star, appears to rise at the same general time as the sun, and …

August 11th – Discovery Island (#25)

Dan and I went for a morning paddle around the islands. First “real” paddle since I got back from Iceland! Weather conditions were great and the tide was super low (zero tide height!) and many of our usual passages were blocked (We could not go between Griffin and Alpha Islets)! There was also a strong […]

Odla snittblommor

Odla snittblommor

Att odla sina egna snittblommor har blivit poppis de senaste åren, bara runt oss finns det 4-5st som har gårdsförsäljning eller blomsterkiosk. Jag har alltid gillat blommor och när man har dedikerat några delar i trädgården till just snittblommor är det så mycket enklare och roligare att plocka och göra buketter till sig själv och … Läs mer…
