Paddle test off Vikhög

Vikhög, draperat i tång

Time today to put the new paddle through its paces, before the next gale hits us later in the afternoon. As usual I launched my Black Pearl in Vikhög – a Vikhög that looks a bit different. The frequent winter gales have hidden the beach under tons of seaweed.

The paddle to test was from the first batch of production paddles: the GP1 – the carbon Greenland style paddle I designed for Axis Kayaks. I tried it briefly from a float in the lake beneath the factory just before Christmas, but in a kayak without a fitting spraydeck, with very limited time and the rest of the group shivering in the intense cold, it was no more than a basic function test.

Today I had a couple of hours in the waters off Vikhög and Löddenäs for a thorough evaluation against my old favorite wooden paddle, and I can conclude that it behaves exactly as I hoped.

Hej Björn!

Sedan förra sommaren har jag knåpat på en Frej i Björn Welins härliga kajakverkstad.

Under hösten kom han fram till att han behövde en till Black Pearl för att få plats med vinterkläderna, så han började ett bygge när jag var halvvägs in i mitt, men vi blev klara ungefär samtidigt.

Mycket tankeverksamet har lagts ner på vissa detaljer, vilket har resulterat i en skädda som efter första turen känns väldigt lovande, en fikalucka på fördäck som jag är nöjd med och en sittbrunnssarg som är något bakflyttad, så låg det bara går och dessutom med lutning bakåt, allt för att göra kajaken så lättrollad som möjligt.

Och lättrollad blev den, handrollen som jag förut bara klarat i en Tahe Greenlander gick på första försöket (dock klarar jag den bara åt ett håll med Frej)

Frej i spännande färgsättning – Per Hansson

Frej – Per Hansson

En ny Frej sjösatt i ett vintervitt Stockholm. Per Hansson blev klar med sitt tredje bygge i februari.

Hej! Här kommer lite bilder från februari i Stockholm. Blev klar med min Frej i början av februari och har hunnit paddla 5-6 gånger. Trevlig, lättsvängd men ovant och trångt med den lilla sittbrunnen.

Pers samling: två Thule och en Frej ;-)
