Skim in Venice

Here are some photos of the new Skim Distance in Venice and surroundings.

The Skim Distance parked besides a very busy inner city canal.

Among the multicoloured houses of Burano there was one with exactly the same colours as my Skim Distance.

My venetian friend Marco wanted to try the Skim Distance and immediately took a liking to it. The expression on his face says it all: don’t try to take it away from me!

You're not getting it back!

  1. Hi Rene.
    I see the Skim Kayaks in KanuMesse Nuremberg this weekend, it,s really, really good finish details, and the two persons that stay in the stand of the show are very likeable.

    Good Boats.
    Good travel in Venice

    Hi Borrasca,

    Probably no surprise, but I really like the Skim Distance. It is well made, with many nice details, and it is very manoeuvrable in tight spaces, the length notwithstanding. I’ve paddled it in Venice for a week now, with not problems. After all, the gondolas are much longer 🙂

    One of the persons you’ve met must be Göran. Nice fellow indeed 🙂
