Learning to sea kayak

Learn to Sea Kayak in Maine

I am very excited to announce that I will be teaching a week-long on-the-water sea kayaking class in Maine this summer. If you have one of my designs, or you are interested in learning how to handle a sea kayak on the ocean, this is your chance to gain some great experience, while enjoying one of the prettiest places to paddle in the world.

microBootlegger Sport Build Overview Video

Ten months after I started the build, I finally have the final recap video of the microBootlegger Sport build complete. This was a fun build and I still want to make a microBootlegger Sport for myself, but I'm not sure when I will have the time.

Paddling a skin on frame kayak

I am really pleased to offer a new class. In this class we will build the Skin on Frame microBootlegger Sport. While I do not yet offer the plans, I am able to lead people through the building of this unique, fun sea kayak.

Kayaking Class Gear List and Dressing for Cold Water

Kayaking Class Gear List:

Paddlng safely in ocean water requires you pay attention to water temperature and conditions. You generally want to dress for the water temperature, not the air temperature. You should also plan on carrying other gear that will help protect you or provide a layer of safety while paddling. The gear list provided here is tailored towards summer paddling in Maine. Local conditions where you paddle may dictate variations in this list.

Watch the progression from a bundle of wood strips to a completed kayak in 7 minutes. In this week long class students made a beautiful fine strip planked kayak.

Here is the schedule for the week shown in this video:
