    Since Kayaking is cool again after a 15 year hiatus, let's get some stoke for the spring. Roadside in Norway.

    Best way to make sure you start early is to never stop.



    January at another Maine rip.




    And a few PFDs last month on the other coast just as things got weird.

    Nice! Below the grange hall on the Sheepscot?

    I've had to dodge driftwood and other various flotsam (seals usually duck) but never any ice... I'm usually still skiing in April.

    Yup. I had a few year streak of paddling every month. Depending on how much ice, we’ve had to have someone on the ledge as a lookout for the surfers.

    Nice, when I was a kid I'd paddle my canoe to the end of the Damriscota lake and put in in the great Salt Bay to catch the reversing falls in Damriscotta, when the tide changed we'd hit the falls headed back home again. My fiberglass canoe didn't have any flotation and I think my friends were a little surprised when I'd tell them to make sure their pfd was strapped to the boat. I really didn't want to loose my boat.

    ^^ Dude...You should try to sit up straight, think reverse c-curve spine angle, and keep that lead arm higher and your paddle more parallel to your boat line. Think more rudder vs. using the back of your blade, ie to much braking/drag. Your surfs will be a lot more dynamic.

    Love the old school boats. You seem to have a quiver

    Traded all my money for a boat.

    Two days after I bought it I launched a 4 day San Juan trip from Sand Island to Mexican Hat











    And then last weekend a permit came up for an impromptu Split Mountain day trip





    That's it for now. Hopefully much more to come.
