Thai Coast Trip - 560 kms in a Wisper XP

Post by iant »

A friend and I just paddled the entire west coast of Thailand, basically from the Burma border to the Malaysian. We took 3 weeks - 19 paddling days and 2 rest/maintenance days. We camped the whole way. We were in FC Wisper XPs.
The Andaman is a beautiful coast.

Fantastic. Thanks for posting these great photographs. What a great trip. Love the rain shot, the limestone cliff and the overly processed scarf tier... Some of those iPod shots look very reminiscent of old polaroids. Some great landscapes in here. Thanks again.

I love sailing and paddling my Klepper, but I see a journey like this and think a nice light Wisper could do the trick. Especially with that single backpack shot at the end.
