A Sea Kayaking Affair: You Ever Had One ?

 Sea kayaking affair ?  Shucks.  Never heard of one, before.

But, I met these honeymoon people kayaking, one day and took their picture.

Now I'm learning a little bit about sea kayaking.

And, there is a big kayak affair happening in Okinawa, this month.

The folks sponsoring this event, called Guts 2012, have all the details.

They have an expert named James Manke, from Canada coming over to teach.

Just poking around on the Japan website, I watched some of the videos.

Those sea kayakers do some pretty wild stuff.

Like, they fool around in waves big enough to qualify as tsunamis !

The Greenlandstick Users' Trial Stages is one of the things everyone wants to qualify in.

The three day event takes place just a few miles up the road from my house.

It will happen November 23-25th so, I plan on checking it out.

Now, there's no way I'd try to challenge someone from Canada at using a stick made in Greenland.

But, we might do one of my favorite, redneck sports.

See who qualifies best at chugging Orion Beer.

See y'all soon sea kayakers !
