West Coast Kayaking

I’ve been kayaking before but last weekends winds where around 8-10 m/s so that where a decent challenge. Especially since it was the third time I was out kayaking at sea. However, I’ve spent more time kayaking in lakes.

The crew for the trip where 3 out of 4 members that will go to Lofoten in 2,5 week. It was me, my wife G and out Norwegian friend A. So we geared up and paddles out into the waves and it took some effort and about 2 hour before we reached the island Ängholmen about 5 kilometers from Marstrand that is a more famous location at the Swedish west coast.

There we set camp for the night and and had a really nice evening swimming, testing tents, sleeping gear and outdoor kitchens for the trip to Lofoten. Where a pretty nice test. Windy but rather warm temperatures in the air and sunny. Also got some pretty nice photos. And I had 24 hours without internet. I just sent texts telling my family when I arrived and left locations and took a few photos. Most photos however, I took with my GoPro camera.

Loved kayaking at the west coast so it might happen again.
