Nanuq KayakingNanuq Kayaking2018-02-22Kayak Ways Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson in skin boats - seams add as much character as Turner's beard. He happens to be a master skin boat and Greenlandpaddle teacher/maker. Cheri is not only one of the few paddlers that is both a master instructor, and a solid guide - she started working with maineiskayak back in the '80s. So come to improve your rolling, but realize they are doing to train you to drown proof your paddling.

Builder One ProjectsBuilder One Projects2018-02-20Greenland paddles made from western red cedar required a little protection from bumps and dints when transported in the back of the truck. Sewed up some storage bags to solve that issue. westernredcedargreenlandpaddlepaddlebagkayakinghandmadehttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/6c200b40e96b0ab8cd82c0323a0dec11/5B48FF4F/t51.2885-15/e35/27892867_179507869326309_8382669842641059840_n.jpg2018-02-20
Detlev DeningerDetlev Deninger2018-02-18A ( non-scientific) comparison of some of my Greenland paddles:
Gearlab Akiak 220cm Carbon
Gearlab Akiak 225cm Kevlar
DIY paddle 225cm, wood, a shameless rip-off from the Akiak, thanks gearlabpaddles for the nice documentation on your website.
First, weight: Carbon wins with 893 gr, surprisingly the wooden paddle comes second with 915 gr, then the Kevlar with 933 gr. If you weight the different paddles in your hand, there is no chance to feel a difference.
Second, flex: I supported the paddles under both tips and put a load of 6 kg on one of the grip points (place where i normally place my hand while paddling, but this can slightly differ to others, since these are shoulderless paddles).
The Kevlar wins with 11 mm flex, carbon second with 13 mm and my wooden paddle had 15 mm. That was a surprise since Gearlab states on their website that the Kevlar has more flex than the carbon version. During normal paddling you can hardly notice a difference between these paddles, in surf conditions or while accelerating the wooden has slightly more flex.

Seu nome científico, Dendrocygna viduata, significa "cisne de luto que vive nas árvores". Já o nome comum (Irerê) vem do som do seu canto. 📸 franciomarpcostairerêkayakcaiaquegreenlandpaddle
