Kayaking in the Greek Surf


Patrick is French, and he likes to paddle standing up, and seated. He resides on the island of Crete, in Greece.
Says Patrick: “Wavewalk Kayak 500 – Première mise à l’eau – Balade de 1h dans la Baie de Kissamos dans l’île de Crète. Bonne glisse et position assise très confortable.”

Translation: “Wavewalk 500 kayak – First launching, and 1 hour trip in the bay of Kissamos, in the island of Crete. Good glide, and very comfortable seated position.”

Motorized Fishing Kayak with Oceanographic Equipment

Here are some more pics of my motorized fishing kayak, and a blog from the project: http://blog.iod.ucsd.edu/RIVET/

We keep talking about turning the wave walker into a robot..autonomous surface vehicle..so I don’t have to drive!…haven’t done it yet but will let you know when we do. We have lots of robotic underwater vehicles here so on the surface is easy.

Hope all is well with you and you are having a good summer.
