The Legend and his Student at Kanumesse

I still remember being a new student in a “Fun with Foster” class at a symposium on Tybee Island at Sea Kayak Georgia, probably year 2004? – the job was to “have fun with the kayaks”.

 I stuck my head into the cockpit of a floating Explorer, face up, grabbed the footrests with my hands over the head, and rolled the kayak fully with my LEGS ONLY – and not only half around! I managed to repeat the trick another time, and once again in Denmark in an Avocet – but lost it by now probably due to upcoming claustrophobia – I think it is quite easy to drown on that one with no one to help. Please DON’T DO THAT AT HOME! 🙂
