Video release!

Far too early, but too excited to not get up. We had a little celebration party last night since the job of making the "Greenland paddle promo video" is finished! Thank you all who joined, and especially thanks to Mattia for excellent Italian cooking :) I let the video speak for itself:

First outdoor swim in 2014


After a long winter without paddling, we decided to begin the season with a swim and some kayak rescues. 
My apprentice, Mattia from Rome, Italy found this ritual rather peculiar. My son Olav joined us, and found out too late that his drysuit's zipper was not locked properly. So we all got a feel of the 4 degrees "warm" water.
