Kayak Noise - Trip Humour

Thanks to Dave Aharonian....
These are some fun shots that Dave (see previous post on Dave and his story, click on people label) took while on a trip paddling down the west coast of Vancouver Island with Alex. Dave was kind enough to let me post his shots. Check out Dave's website at http://www.daveaharonian.com/

OK, So how did that roll thing work again?

So these are some great shots. I was meant to come up with some really funny captions. Well I did what I could but I kinda think they suck so if you can come up with a caption please post it.

Kayak Noise - Flat hull Sea kayak

Viper Proto....

I've surfed it a few times now. It surfs very differently than the Spyder I normally surf. But once I started to figure it out I got some unbelievable rides it goes like a freight train. I'm able to catch very small waves easily and as long as I stay high I pick up lots of speed. I haven't taken a GPS with me but on flat water the boat feels fine.

kayak Noise - Flat Hull Seakayaks


So after the experiment with the stand up board (see first posting titled Flat Hull seakayaks) I decided to make a 14ft boat with a flat bottom. As you can see it looks like a surf boat just much longer. These are pictures of the computer model. With me in it (200lbs) I have 2" of draft. Most sea kayaks have 4" to 5". I hope I can still cruise a long easily at 3/4 knots but I hope I will be able to catch swell way more easily and be much faster than a regular sea kayak. I guess we'll see. I also hope to be able to surf in to the beach with out going sideways like sea kayaks do which is pretty lame.
