Intro Lang and kayaking

My 1st trying out a kayak was in 1989. Hey, that’s just 20years ago.! Those were the days of heavy fibreglass kayaks, also known as canoes, as Singapore was very much influenced by the Brits. lang3

Anyway, it was just something to do. I didnt enjoy it more than riding or reading. But I had always like going somewhere on a expedition. We were at Outward bound school, when I had my 1st on the water expedition at night. It was a 3hrs rubber raft paddle around Pulau Ubin, when everybody was dead tired from a busy day of activity already. Missing bedtime was unwelcomed for most, but I really did enjoy it.

2 days later, we did the double canoe trip from Ubin to Coney, camp for the night then back on the next day. The “canoeing” was not so fun, my partner was a lousy paddler and we both struggled to barely keep up.

No more paddling trips worth mentioning from then till 2006. Thats me in the picture, on my own SOT Ocean kayak, off the beautiful island of Pangkor kechil. That was so refreshing. To paddle and to enjoy the sights, the peacefulness of floating in a beautiful place. Clean air, clear water and quiet. Someday, I want to go back to that place and that feeling again.

Anyway, the point is. Lang had been kayaking, but never really enjoying it till only recently. Having my own kayak, paddle and water space really made a difference. Having a great partner to paddle with, is just icing on the cake.
