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

Sorry for keeping it low here on Instagram! I haven't really paddled that much after my trip to Tromsø a couple of weeks ago. Maybe the scenery was too breathtaking there and now it is difficult for me to find inspiration to go seakayaking here in Helsinki. 😅 No, I think the reason is that I have been running quite a lot this spring and summer. It have ran more or less for the last maybe 5 years or so, but now, for some unknown reason, running feels very good. I've become faster and my bpm has dropped quite a lot. For example today I think I broke my half marathon record almost by accident. And I wasn't even competing! It was a normal 21K run after an early morning shift and a nap. 😊 I'm really psyched about my progress. I don't like carrying a phone with me when I run so this hobby has kept my instagram feed almost dead. Maybe it's time to go kayaking and rolling soon! 😊 . . . running run runner runnersofinstagram halfmarathon suunto suuntorun suuntospartanultra suuntospartan suuntosuomi sports outdoors outdoorlife outdoorfinland outdooractivity outdooradventures juoksu juoksija

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

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
