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

Winter is a beautiful season and it gives challenges for a dedicated kayaker. For me the biggest challenge seems to be these February nights when the sea is frozen and you can't go out there. I'm seriously thinking of buying snow shoes and a harness to tow my kayak to the edge of ice. 😊 But I'm not quite there yet. Maybe I'll just wait for a while. Last year it was March the 5th when the ice went a way with the wind. ❄ . . . kayaking seakayaking oceankayaking oceankayak winterkayaking melonta merimelonta talvimelonta outdoorlife outdoorfinland outdoorphotography ourfinland meri sea seascape mer hav qajaq kajak kajakk rebelkayaks

My saturday morning run was a success – 20K sub 2 hours! 😊 Running felt good the whole time so I just let my feet do what they wanted to. I've ran two half marathons in about 1.55 hours but I've never had this pace on a normal weekend run. It must be because I've cycled to work this winter. Because I haven't been running too much this winter, that's for sure. 😅 We'll see what my condition is on this year's marathons and half marathons – I hope I can beat my own records! 😊 PS. The sea is still frozen so no kayaking for a while... ❄ . . . running run runner runnersofinstagram juoksu marathontraining juoksija aamulenkki morningrun winterrunning suunto suuntosuomi suuntoambit suuntorun

Took my Husky out for a walk. 😊 That's all we did because that ice reaches almost all the way to that small island back in the horizon. I'm waiting for that rolling season 2017 to start! 😅 Who's left stranded with me? . . . kayaking kayakinglife kayakgram paddlingmixtape paddlewithkayakid winterkayaking oceankayaking oceankayak oceanghostrider seakayaking seakayakingfinland ice sea mer hav meri melonta merimelonta talvimelonta ourfinland outdoorfinland outdoorphotography outdooradventurephotos suunto suuntosuomi rebelkayaks

Before trying the norsaq roll or the hand roll I think it is better to learn the shotgun (or armpit) roll. It helped me to get my shoulders flat on the water, which is really important especially when rolling without a paddle. After I felt comfortable with this roll and I didn't put too much pressure on the blade it was a lot less frightening to try the norsaq roll and eventually the hand roll. 😊❄ This video is also from my latest rolling session in December. Still too much ice to paddle at the moment. . . . rolling greenlandstyle shotgunroll ipaddlewithastick oceanghostrider paddlewithkayakid paddlingmixtape greenlandpaddle kayaking seakayaking oceankayaking winterkayaking melonta merimelonta talvimelonta ourfinland outdooradventurephotos outdoorfinland sea meri mer hav kajakk kajak qajaqrolls qajaq rebelkayaks gopro suunto suuntosuomi

I was so happy when I learned the storm roll last summer. ⛈ I had some hard time with my hands and couldn't get the logic behind the roll. At first I thought it was a standard Greenland roll but faster and with a quick bow on the front deck. Dubside was at Hanko Sea Kayak Gathering by nilfinland and there I finally got it. The key was to hold your palms down, not up like in the standard roll! When I realized that the pieces started to find their places. 😊 This summer I'll concentrate on forward finishing rolls. What are the best kayaking camps you've ever attended? 😊 Oh and yes, this video is from December. Home bay is still too frozen, but not for long! . . . kayaking seakayaking winterkayaking rolling stormroll greenlandstyle greenlandrolling oceanghostrider rebelkayaks brookspaddlegear gopro melonta merimelonta talvimelonta paddlingmixtape paddlewithkayakid outdoorlife outdoorfinland ourfinland meri hav mer sea watersports qajaq suuntosuomi suunto

Point of impact. 😊❄ As our home bay is still too frozen I'm stuck on dry land and going through photos and videos from earlier this winter. This was taken on December.

This is me coming back to shore. It was cold but beautiful! Water was about to freeze and it's starting to feel like winter again (now it's about -17 celsius and with wind it feels lile -27.) We'll see how many kilometres one can paddle this January.

Frost warning! ❄ Winter came back to Finland. -10 celsius and with wind it feels like -20. I was in the water maybe for 10-15 minutes and there was already ice on both decks and on me. Had to try it though.

Today I went for speed and power when choosing a paddle. 🚀It was fun for a change! Wooden Greenland-style paddle is still my favourite (I haven't had the chance to try a carbon fibre blade yet) but I like the force that a light racing paddle offers. It for sure is good exercise! 😅 . . . kayaking seakayaking winterkayaking melonta merimelonta talvimelonta meri hav sea mer outdoorfinland outdoorphotography nature luonto watersports gulfoffinland winter vinter talvi
