I love outdoor activities, rocks and straight lines. Mostly kayaking photos/videos and seascapes from Helsinki, Finland. ❄️

I arrived to our summer cottage after about 15 hours of driving. Norway was awesome but Finland has its own good sides too. 🇫🇮❤️🇳🇴 Sauna and then to sleep, god natt! . . . vacation roadtrip visitfinland virrat hirviniemi seinäjärvi soundofsilence finland nature naturephotography outdoorfinland ourfinland outdooradventures lake landofthemidnightsun landofthousandlakes

My watch tells me I have taken 43583 steps today. 😅 I walked to the south end of Tromsø and on some trails that go around the island. Didn't make it to the north end – something for next time. 😊 Coffee and chocolate taste pretty good now. 🇳🇴 . . . hiking trail tromsø norway norge visitnorway visittromsø outdooractivity outdooradventures outdoorlife path sea seascape nature naturephotography mountains fjord fjords

Maybe I should just stay here? Live in my tent and paddle and hike every day?

For this I would drive 1400 kilometers every day. I fell in love with Northern Norway, especially Tromsø region and Sommarøy. You who live here are the luckiest kayakers on this planet. I feel grateful for having a chance to come here and experience this. 🇳🇴😊❤️ . . . kayaking kayakingnorway seakayaking seakayakingnorway visitnorway sommarøy sommarøya tromsø melonta merimelonta outdoorlife outdooradventures scandinavia watersports

Here's the hand roll to static brace with a little less splash. 😊 It is strange to notice how little force you need to make this roll happen. It's all about flexibility and the right maneuver. A little faith is also needed, because your brain is telling you it's not going to happen without speed and power! 😅 . . . kayakroll kayakrolling handroll qajaqrolls greenlandrolling kayak kajak kajakk kayaking seakayaking seakayakingfinland melonta merimelonta paddlingmixtape paddlewithkayakid outdoorlife ourfinland outdoorfinland outdooractivity watersports lauttasaari rebelkayaks gopro gearlabpaddles

The first time I saw a static brace without a paddle I was really amazed. I wondered how it was possible to float that way (it was super hard for me even with a paddle at first.) Now after a year of intense rolling I'm finally able to do it myself! Yesssss! So happy! 👍 . . . kayakroll handroll kayakrolling qajaqrolls kayak kajak kajakk kayaking kayaklyfe seakayaking seakayakingfinland paddlingmixtape paddlewithkayakid melonta merimelonta rebelkayaks gopro ourfinland outdoorfinland outdoorlife watersports spring achievement ididit

From reverse sweep to standard Greenland roll. Had a fun session today! And the water wasn't as cold as it was a couple of weeks ago. Ok, it is still cold but now my head wasn't freezing after every roll. Or maybe it felt warm because the air temperature has been so low for a few weeks now? 😅 . . . kayakroll kayakrolling roll rolling greenlandrolling kayak kajak kajakk kayaking seakayaking seakayakingfinland watersports melonta merimelonta ourfinland outdoorfinland outdoorlife kayakgram paddlingmixtape paddlewithkayakid rebelkayaks gopro

My first roll with a Pikatti-norsaq by gearlabpaddles that I won from a competition by paddlewithkayakid last year. 😊 I like how light it is and the size of it. I practised my first norsaq rolls with a blade much smaller. It might've been easier to learn the basic rolls with a Pikatti. On the down side it is much more difficult to get a good grip of it with neoprene mittens. I really had to squeeze it and I was a little worried I might loose my grip of it half way the roll. Wooden norsaq has way better friction than a carbon fibre version. I'm sure it isn't a problem when using it without gloves (or if you have good friction pads on the palms of your gloves.) 👍 I had a nice rolling session, first proper one this season. Water was cold but the sun kept me warm. . . . kayaking kayak kajak kajakk seakayaking seakayakingfinland kayakroll norsaq qajaq rolling melonta merimelonta gearlabpaddles paddlingmixtape watersports sea mer meri outdoorlife rebelkayaks
