Just another day on the job

Launching at Lomma beach
So it was paddling today again - filed under "customer service". Kristofer was interested in the Njord and wanted to try first. Accepting the conditions: just above freezing and force 4 NE, and in a borrowed tuiliq (my old, not quite leakfree anymore) he launched at Lomma beach for a short tryout. I am often more than willing to swop some time at the computer for a little paddling, so away we went for an hour or so at sea. Though almost a novice he found himself quickly at ease with the limited initial stability of the Njord, handled the greenland paddle very well and even pulled off a roll on the first attempt! And did he buy the plans - you bet...
