Paddling along the "Orca Highway" in the San Juan Islands with an expert Sea Quest guide is a great way to find killer whales. Once the whales were spotted, the guide courteously rafted all the kayaks together. The orcas decided to make a close inspection of the kayakers and came within a kayak length on the first pass. The wide-angle lens makes the killer whales seem much further away. You can see our guide pointing down at an orca whale only a paddle length away but just below the surface. We'll post another video from this kayaking encounter filmed with a normal lens soon!

Over the last 15 years, CLC boatbuilding classes have launched 900 boats and introduced more than a thousand students to the joys of boatbuilding. CLC has been hosting and teaching build-your-own-boat classes since 1994. Our talented professional instructors will help you assemble your own boat from start to finish. Most classes are 5-1/2 days---a perfect one-week vacation, with your own boat to take home, ready for finish work. View CLC's current class schedule at http://www.clcboats.com/classes One of the most popular kayaks CLC has ever offered, the Shearwater is an elegant, performance-oriented touring kayak. The "tumble home" sheer panel reduces windage and improves paddle clearance. The Shearwater features CLC's trademark cambered deck. The West Greenland style hard-chined hull has naturally easy and controllable handling for the skilled paddler and comfortable stability for the newer paddlers. The hull shape ensures good tracking even in windy and rough conditions. The deck is cut from "Sapele" mahogany plywood for extra good looks and natural contrast with the Okoume hull and sheer panel. The clean lines of the Shearwater make it one of the "sexiest" kayaks on the market. Learn more about CLC's Shearwater Kayaks here: http://www.clcboats.com/shop/stitchandgluekayaks/shearwaters/

We had some fun at Minnamurra. Firstly, a surf session. Whilst I was out the back, waiting for a wave, I found a Shearwater (a bird..not really sure of the type) just floating on the surface. I was worried that he was injured and was drifting into the break. Turned out it was just resting and I was probably just annoying him! We had a play in some rocks just north east of Mystics, then surf at Killalea. On the way back into Minnamurra we had a Hippopotamus sighting. Fer's version is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZDS5_ricQ0

Elegant lines result in real performance. The sweeping sheerline complements the nicely balanced ends; there isn't an awkward hump or bump anywhere. The sheer panels are "tumbled home" to reduce windage and improve paddle clearance. Like all Chesapeake Light Craft kayak kits, the decks are smoothly cambered, not cut up into a faceted, homebuilt appearance. West Greenland-style hulls provide telepathic handling to the skilled paddler, while initial and secondary stability are ample for the newly initiated. On the water, the Shearwater demonstrates excellent poise and responsiveness in a broad range of conditions, edging turns easily when leaned but straight when pushed hard in surf. A cutaway bow and skeg-like stern ensures tracking even in extremely rough water. The relatively low profile means you'll spend less time on corrective strokes and more time covering ground.

Well the morning was as calm as could be then as soon as we launched our kayaks on Skaha Lake the wind came up from the South. The head wind didn't seem to be a problem as with our previous paddle brands these new webbs grip the water and take us into the wind with ease, was a great way for Kathy McA to test out her new Shearwater Webbed Paddles www.WebbedPaddles.com We had a great time paddling in the waves Kathy also enjoyed the new webbs, she was able to pass me which made her grin. ;-) LogDate: 4/9/2013 More at: http://www.KAYAKokanagan.com http://www.GuyThaLizard.com BlogLog: http://guythalizard.blogspot.ca/2013/04/kathys-1st-paddle-with-her-new-webbs.html

This is actually 2 trips, over 2 days rolled into 1 video. Matt returned for the Monday as he promised, but I didn't believe, ha ha, and we did Sennen Cove to just short of Gwennap Head. On the Tuesday, we went out to Longships Lighthouse, and straight back in to the 'Armed Knight' then back to Sennen Cove as the wind got up. My camcorder wouldn't work at all, on the Monday, so it was all done on the Gopro, hence the lack of audio, and depleted quality when there was some audio. Hence, there is a lot of music to pad it out. As you can see, we were once again blessed with wonderful weather, and the swell was about as calm as it EVER gets here. Sennen Cove is a renowned surfing spot, but not whilst we were resident it wasn't. So the first half of the video, is the Tuesday, out to Longships Lighthouse, and the second half is mainly the Monday, shot on the Gopro. All this for me has been a dream come true, I have dreamt of this since my derriere first touched a Kayak seat. I also want to do Cape Wrath, and Duncansby Head, the 2 corners of Scotland's north coast. Some day maybe, who knows?
