My first ever kayak trip

Let me tell you about my first ever kayak trip.

Because many many years ago, and my friend was having his birthday party. We were out in the country near a river and then I spotted a little cottage a few hundred meters away. The party was starting in a few hours so I decided to go check out the house by the river.

To my surprise, it turned out to be a kayak rental. Since we had a few hours to go, I decided to give it to try. The manager gave me a life vest, a paddle and just told me to go grab a kayak off the bridge.

I strapped on my vest and decided to go give it a try. I jumped in the kayak and started paddling hysterically, up the river. The river turned me around and my journey began..

I kind of panicked and there was nothing I could do about it. 10 minutes later I got to the checkpoint and owner greeted me.

The next morning I got proper training and that's where my love for kayaks started.

Ever since that I've gone kayaking as often as I could and now have over three kayaks. One regular and two tandem kayaks :)

Let me know if you've ever been kayaking and how your first time went.


Welcome to MyKayakWorld

Hello and welcome to MyKayakWorld!

My name is Chuck & I am 39 years old. I have a lot of different hobbies and one of them is kayaking, which is why I have created this little blog of mine.

I have enjoyed kayaking for several years now, I try to go kayaking every weekend if by any means possible. A few years back I used to go kayaking alone, but it wasn't nearly enough fun. My girlfriend didn't think she could handle a kayak on our own, so we decided to purchase a tandem kayak instead.

This soon became a great passion of mine and I've made it my duty to let other people know about tandem kayaks. On this blog I will be talking about them a little bit and sharing my experiences with it.

I hope that you find some interesting information on my blog and become a regular reader. Stay tuned for new posts.
