Kayakshow in the Tanum municipal hall
Here are a couple of photos from our show "vatten-nära" (close-to-water) at the Tanum municipal hall on the swedish west coast. With the help of local newspapers there has been great interest. mediaMed hjälp av de lokala tidningarna har utställningen rönt ett stort intresse. Photos and text complement the kayaks to inspire to paddling as well as building your own kayak, and give information on the building process and where to get plans.
