year of the kayak

Post by moses s »

2007 has definitely been the year of the kayak for me!!
In the fall of 2006 I saw a group of soldiers crossing a levee with their folding kayaks, and shortly after that a friend from Switserland sended some pictures of his newly purchased Nautiraid Raid 325.
After these experiences, I guess I was sold, and I went looking on the internet for folding kayaks. Still it took several months before I bought a Folbot Kiawah.
With my new boat I started to explore the waterways around my house. I was amazed by how much I enjoyed this, and by the fact that with the kayak I seemed to be pulled into the city, unlike cycling, on a bicycle I always tended to go straight out of town.
Another amazement while exploring the Amsterdam city canals, was the fact that I only once met another kayak. So I felt like I have to promote Amsterdam as a very special place for kayaking, and I started documenting the tours I made and uploaded a lot of photos on my Flickr page : http://www.flickr.com/photos/mosessantiago/
But since I reached the limits of this page I think it may be a better idea to move my photos to the photo gallery on this site.

Welcome!

Great photographs. I lived in Haarlem and worked in Wyk Ann Zee at Hoogovens for six months in 1987. Love it there.

Your photographs are amazing! Thanks for sharing....

Winter has been long this year over here in the Netherlands, but now there is some spring in the air, and I get more and more excited about putting up my kayak and take it out.
As a ship-owner I did well last winter, when I purchased a nine meter long canal boat, with kitchen, toilet, a bed- and a livingroom, and with an enigine inside. Yesterday I fixed a solar cell panel to the roof, and now I only need a good internet connection to have a perfect floating and mobile homebase for my kayak and myself!
I intend to intensely explore the many waterways and small lakes in and around my hometown, and document my trips in photosets. To make a start, I made a compilation of the most viewed and commented (last year's) photos I had on Flickr, and I made a new album, starring my new Mothership.
So check out Moses Santiago on Folding Kayaks Galleries!!!
