Tip #87 - Do Not Do This! Paddling Otaku Tuesday, 21 January, at 18:58

I frequently get people asking me for help with this particular issue. The way a lot of people want to remedy the problem is not safe. See below.

 

Bli naturligt smal med 60-talsmetoden kajak.nu Tuesday, 21 January, at 13:57

Den här titeln gillar jag. Boken är skriven av Jan Kallberg och boken kom ut 2004. Inte helt purfärsk men det mesta är ju samma trots att det har gått några år. Jag läste boken lite snabbt 2004 eller kanske 2005. Nu sprang jag på den igen och titeln är fortfarande kanon. Vad gjordes annorlunda ... Läs mer...

late 19th C Arthur Heming Voyageur Paddle Reproduction Paddle Making (and other canoe stuff) Monday, 20 January, at 18:25

Another paddle replica carved during the summer of 2019 was a basswood "Voyageur" paddle illustrated by famed Canadian artist, Arthur Heming (1870-1940). Heming travelled with voyageur brigades at the very end of the fur trade era documenting the times with a mix of both realistic and fanciful artworks. In this case a hardy voyageur  climbs up a steep slope with a tumpline loaded with a crate and large sacks of supplies. A narrow paddle with an oval bobble grip acts as a support stick.


The sketch appears in J.W. Tyrell's Across the sub-Artics of Canada (published 1898) and is available on Archive.org. Heming accompanied Tyrell on this trip and in this case sketched many realistic portraits of the crew and environment. It stands to reason that the accomplished artist drew this p...

Crabby Kayakers Woman on Water Monday, 20 January, at 15:57

Winter is probably my favorite season on the Mendocino Coast.  I love the excitement of winter storms - big waves, dramatic skies, and rain.  It is fun to watch the weather forecasts and to go out on storm watching missions.  Often our storm watching missions evolve into wave watching missions both on and off the water.

Soltur fra Vinjesjøen Padlemia Monday, 20 January, at 09:35

I dag var det invitert til soltur, med Vesterålen Padleklubb og Bø Havkajakklubb. I fjor ble det dårlige greier og ikke noe av, så etter innspill fra et medlem om soltur så prøvde vi på nytt i år. Denne gangen ble det tur!

Værmeldinga derimot, var lite medgjørlig. Det ble meldt skifte i været, og det varierte når dette skulle slå til. Etter hvert ble det også meldt fullstendig overskyet hele dagen. Nuvel – jeg skulle padle uansett. Da dagen kom var det også helt klar himmel hjemme ho...

Vi gjorde en liten utflykt till Grytåsa strövområde lite öster om oss och strax söder om Örkelljunga. Grytåsa ingår i Skånska Landskaps portfölj av strövomården och Skåneleden passerar igenom. Riktigt fint område med varierad skog, fin liten å/bäck, vindskydd, eldkoja med mera. Rekommenderas!

Drog igång en brasa, hängde upp fotogenlyktan. Grillade lite, gick lite korta promenader, vindskyddshängde och hade det gött framför brasan. ... Läs mer...

Vik, Årnesan og Silsandholmen Padlemia Saturday, 18 January, at 21:45

Forrige søndag tok jeg turen til Vik, for å padle litt i bølger og kanskje samle 10 på skjæret-posten Silsandholmen hvis det var så pass forhold at jeg kunne komme meg dit. Det er jo en del holmer og skjær som skjermer bortover fra Årnesan, men på sørvest står det ganske godt på inn mellom Skjervøyan og Holmsnesøya, så jeg var litt spent.

Det var bygevær over Hadseløya, og kuling da jeg passerte måletavla ved brua.

Hovden og Frugga med Nils Padlemia Friday, 17 January, at 08:46

Nils J. holder til i Harstad, der er det ikke allverdens storhav i umidelbar nærhet. Så han tok seg en tur utover sist høst, for å få en smak av yttersida. Værmeldinga sa at det skulle bli passelige forhold for oss utenfor Hovden – vindretningen passet ikke like bra på det andre stedet som var vurdert.

Skiftesanden, her ble det litt oppvarming først.

I've done a couple of paddles with Sebago in Hempstead Bay, and I've thought it must be like a dream to be able to spend summer months in these bay houses. Tugster Will shared this on Facebook today - it's not very long but it makes it sound like it's just as I pictured.

Fjærvoll med fotograf på land Padlemia Tuesday, 14 January, at 23:24

Jeg hadde tenkt meg til Bø på besøk uansett, så jeg tok turen selv om været antagelig ikke var helt ønsket vindretning. Det var den heller ikke, for padling på Fjærvoll. Men jeg var sein så det fristet ikke å kjøre videre, og ved stranda var fotograf Bjørnar på plass. Jeg hadde ikke rullet inn 2020 ennå heller, så jeg fant ut at det var på tide.

Kayak Lesson: Good Outcome =/= Good Decision Paddle California Tuesday, 14 January, at 21:07

I have a kayaking friend who's, well, let's not call him old but just 'very experienced', and he likes to say that good judgment comes from experience - and experience comes from bad judgment. And it's true: we tend to learn best from our own mistakes. The problem is that we often don't recognize when we make a mistake of judgment because we assume that a good outcome means we made a good decision. Not true.

Because you have to understand the nature of risk is one of probability and consequences. If you run that rapid, what are the odds you'll flip? If you flip, what are the chances you'll swim? If you swim, how likely are you to get hurt (or killed)? Just because you get a certain result in a single roll of the dice doesn't mean it was likely or that the outcome was a result of skill and ability in...

Roksøy i packraften Padlemia Monday, 13 January, at 11:22

Jeg var tidlig ute i år på en tur der jeg tenkte å samle både Reinsnesøya og Roksøya, men det endte med at jeg droppet sistnevnte. For det var helt tidlig på sesongen når man har padlet lite i bølger på en god stund, og forholdene var litt på grensen. Da utsatte jeg det heller, enn å tøye strikken sikkerhetsmessig.

Dermed gikk det en tid før jeg fikk meg en tur hit, det ble først på tidlighøsten. Jeg hadde litt lyst til å padle hit med packraften, for det har jeg ikke gjort før. Jeg h...

Festive Fairbourne Jimski's Blog Saturday, 11 January, at 16:57

Once the excesses of Wigilia, Christmas Day and Boxing Day were consumed it was time to head off in search of adventure and some gentle exercise. A small group of us rented a cottage in Fairbourne at the mouth of the Mawddach estuary in North Wales.

After settling in to our accommodation we began to explore the local area for a short walk. From Penmaenpool Andy and I crossed the toll bridge and took the steep path up through the woods to the Precipice Walk. The views over the Mawddach Estuary are spectacular!

Da vi nåede fjorden var der ikke meget at se - heller ikke voldsom vind, så vi satte af sted rundt om Gavnø. Vi kom hurtigt i læ af øen, og roede snart ud på Fladstrand. På vejen derud hvade vi fornøjelsen af at se to havørne, der sat på en tørlagt banke.

Varför paddlar vi så lite? kajak.nu Tuesday, 07 January, at 13:16

Då och då får vi frågan ”Varför paddlar ni så lite?”. Den har vi fått med ojämna mellanrum de senaste åren och såklart frågat oss själva då och då. Vi paddlade nog som mest mellan åren 2003-2013/2015 ungefär med en topp runt 2008-2012. Slå en kik på årssammanfattningarna. När vi gick ner till halvtidsjobb 2009 ... Läs mer...
