You’re right Michael – it seems that spirit, determination, strength, skill and ability are there in as big a dose as personality, humility and caring.

These waters are special and need someone with a close ocean relationship to work with them… Good on ya girl – go for it.


No, Jim, there’s a third kind of paddler: Freya’s kind! Keep your spirits up, you’re doing just great! Your blog is a wonderful adventure for all of us.

Cheers and best wishes!


“Keep in mind there is two kinds of paddlers. One’s that have been trashed and One’s that are going to be trashed!”. Keep up the safe paddling.


Freya, Nice to see you’ve past half way and are ‘enjoying’ the most remote place in the country. Keep up the blog – I check it every day and find it inspiring.
