Denmark!

After leaving Karlstad, Sweden, Mark and I made our way to Denmark for classes in two locations, Hundested and Svendborg. In Hundested I taught three sessions of Simplifying the Roll, while Mark taught three sessions of Simplifying the Stroke, with an emphasis on moving through, and using, wind and swell. Thanks to Jacob and Mette for hosting us!

Jacob is always happy when he's in his kayak.

The wind provided a wonderful learning environment.

The strokes class was tired but happy after all of that wind excitement.

After the weekend of classes we stuck around for a couple of extra days to explore the area. We visited Økosamfundet Dyssekilde, one of the oldest eco-villages in Denmark. Here a bike waits for its rider.

After leaving Hundested we made our way to Svendborg, also in Denmark, where we ran classes for Kajak Inn. Throughout the two days we ran two sessions of Simplifying the Roll and a Qajaq Immersion Day. Thanks to Pernille and Jacob for hosting us!

Yoga for Paddlers on the dock was a nice start to both days.

The Qajaq Immersion Day included stroke instruction, and the group enjoyed a paddle around several of Svendborg's islands.

    Good to see lots of sticks! The lamb barbecue would be the highlight of the summer for me. That looked for real!
