New Qajaq t-shirt

Finally, My new t-shirt has arrived! For sale now via my web shop or

The print is the framework of a South Greenland kayak and the text from 1906 describes (in Norwegian) what a Kayak is: Skin and frame! The quality is really good, and of course, it is made from 100% organic cotton. Colors are black, brown and olive green.

Qajaq academy Stokkøya

On tuesday, I started driving north to Trøndelag. It takes a day, but It's very rewarding, once you get there. I was on my way to Stokkøya for the 4. Norwegian qajaq symposium. The symposium is in the weekend, and on Wedensday and Thursday I was going to have paddle and rolling workshops with Dubside on the "Qajaq acadamy".

                      Lots of wet activity on the water. 24 people attended the workshops now.

Teaching basic rolling skills.

We have had two great days now, packed with activity. More people arrive now, to take part in the weekend's program.
