How to kayak



Some of you had asked for updates on the kayak Mr. RK and his friend spent so much time painstakingly trying not to tip over...and then said, "Fuck it!" (Not literally, get your minds out of the gutter!) Note how Mr. RK (second kayaker) has his moment of Zen right before falling into the river.

I wouldn't recommend this on a cold day. Actually, I don't think I'd do this on purpose at all. But then I am not a boy.

(And no, I did not come up with the title of the video, Joey!)

Oh come on, you did come up with the video title! :D Looks like fun to me! Although it does make me laugh that they are only in a few feet of water!

Yes, he looks so contemplative right before plunging into the water! But getting out of a capsized kayak is an important skill to learn!

Lynn said...

See??? That is why I don't want to kayak! All that tipping over. And someone needs to be there to take the video. :)

Kayaking looks kind of fun but the tipping over not so much.

I was waiting to see how they managed to climb back in then he stands up in the shallow water. Too funny!

But at least the homemade kayak seems to be seaworthy.

I sit here shaking my head!

Will we women ever understand the way men (read "boys") think?

Boys will be boys! :)

Reminds me of the gif where a man in a kayak falls from a diving board.

Front end goes in vertically and the whole thing flips upside down with the guy still in it.

The birds are watching as well, wondering how humans manage to tip over :-)

An old friend of mine was seriously into that - only on gentle water, none of that white water madness. He often went down the river to the sea and back again - round trip of about 40 miles? I think he just stopped at all the riverside pubs...

Oh yes, warm water is much better for learning this stuff!

LOVED the Zen moment right before he fell in. OMG, hilarious! :D Wish I could've been the filmmaker. :)

The turtle has gone into hiding?

Birdie, thank you, I needed that laugh!
