Video – Are you a Kayak Asshole?

Are You a Kayak Asshole? Video

I am off to Grand Marais for the GLSKS Symposium tomorrow morning. I hope there is surf like last year. I am excited to do some instruction and work with Steve Scherrer on a class.

I have been trying to write more articles and do less “posting”. However this particular video found through questionable means is possible the best thing I have ever seen from user submitted video.

And to answer my own non-paddling friends inevitable question, yes I know I am the person described in the video, minus the SUV.

So for those of us who are too focused on paddling, maybe go out and drink some beers, play some frisbee, and chill the hell out!!!

    There should be a support group. I couldn’t stop talking to my co-workers today about a kayak-camping trip I’m planning. I could tell by the look on each face as I told the story (for the third, fourth or fifth time today) that they were not remotely interested, but i couldn’t stop myself.

    – kayak bitch

    Well, we don’t wish you would drown.
    Like the guest Phil Collins appearance.

    sometimes I end up forgoing somewhat more intellectual pursuits in favor of paddling because of the immediate tangible rewards. Perhaps this is good, perhaps bad…

    Don’t ya hate it when things hit that close to home? Thanks for posting that. I know that some of my friends feel that way about me. I have been wrapped up in whitewater and Mtn. Biking for about 7 years now and I have caught myself not being able to string two sentences together without one of them being about kayaking.

    I recently lost my best friend (who btw..lived in your neck of the woods) and I know he felt that way, because he told me so. I regret that a little.

    Keep up your good work. Your blog is looking great.
