We had a wonderful email from Margaret Bright after we spied a great picture of her brand new - still wrapped up, first ever kayak on the beach on the SKUK/NDK OWNERS page on Facebook.
Here's her story. We think it's wonderful and hope you also enjoy it - and .... why did she buy a 3 piece ...?...

Check out this amazing footage from a recent Expedition to the Shetlands. Martin Taylor of McAuley High School (sea kayaking can be enjoyed by all ages) certainly shows the youngsters that despite the rain and mist, the sea is a truly magical place. Nice to see a whole pod of SKUK kayaks too and Lendal! The sharks are obviously impressed and came in for a close look!

The Big Celebrity Swim was shown on Channel 5 last week and can now be viewed on line!

Look out for Nigel Stealth Kayak Dennis as he starts the Irish Sea crossing with Ronan Keating in the above link.

It took the swimmers 35 hours and 18 minutes to complete the Swim (and kayak!) from Holyhead to Wicklow in aid of Cancer Research where they hope to raise 1 million.

Nigel, Eila and friend Chris had a fantastic time supporting the whole crew of Celebrities and Super Swimmers and wish THE SWIM every success in reaching their target.

Viking Longboat Races - Mixed Winners!!



In memory of the thirty-two young Dutchmen who tried to escape to England by Kayak during World War II to join the Allied Forces. Eight of them reached the English Coast.

In late August 2011, Alec Greenwell, Ed Cooper, Harry Franks and Olly Hicks, all from east Suffolk will kayak the same route taken by the Engelandvaarders 70 years earlier. The route they will be following is that of a pair of brothers, Henri and William Peteri, who departed from Katwijk, several miles north of The Hague, and landed on the beach at Sizewell in Suffolk 56 hours later.


Jonathon has just posted the trip log notes and photos from his recent sea kayaking expedition down the west coast of Canada. The log and photos are released in 8 smaller sections. Hopefully, this will make them easier to view. Here are the links:
