Do you have a kayak? What kind?

I paddle Skin-onFrame kayaks that I make for myself and others. My favourite is my Aleutian Iqyax, I paddle and build Grønland Qajaq as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iqyax http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kayak#History

Where have you paddled on the west coast?

I have 4500 logged hours on the water - much of it coastal. Almost all of it in traditional craft that I've built. I've paddled much of Vancouver Island, was guiding in Haida Gwaii last summer, and have paddled the coast of Washington in winter. From Victoria BC to Astoria Oregon.

Are you interested in organizing trips?

What do you enjoy most about sea kayaking?

Feeling the sea breathing under me, and getting mercilessly thumped by it on occasion. At my heart I'm an expedition paddler.


Hi, my name is ~daniel~, some of you already know me. I am a self-employed traditional skills paddler, kayak coach, boat-builder and day-guide. I'm a BCU internationally certified paddler.
