  • Saltholm, Flakfortet and the Wind Turbines

    Saltholm, Flakfortet and the Wind Turbines

    Today’s paddle took me a bit around the strait of Øresund. I started at the shop, Kajakhotellet.dk, and first I just planned to do on of the usual tours in the vicinity, but the sea was so calm and the sun was shining from a clear sky, so I changed plans and paddled to Saltholm,…

  • Thursday’s paddle

    Every Thursday my local kayak shop has a come-along paddle, just for a few hours after work. It is free for all, but yesterday we were only five, two coaches, two aspirant coaches and a girl that helps in the shop. We took one of the common trips, to the local lighthouse and back, which…

    Rockpool Alaw and Alaw Bach

    So I have managed to spend a whole day from 7am to 8pm just to get a few hours on the water in two Rockpool kayaks: the Alaw and the Alaw Bach. They are only sold in a few places, one of which is Escape Kajakcenter in Göteborg, Sweden. They had a course that day…

    Finally Kayak Owner

    We started paddling mid August, and have since been kayaking two or three times a week, and we’ve logged almost 200 km each in less than three months. Rental kayak costs are mounting and the economy starting pointing towards buying our own kayaks and gear. Fortunately, we have had very good possibilities to try various…
