  • $30K kayaks for the Adventurer's Wish List - Forbes Magazine - November 21: "Basically it started out with just me being a poor college student and wanting a boat," Nick Schade says, referring to a humble first attempt at building a kayak in 1986. Nearly 30 years later, Schade is a bona fide aquatic artist, constructing customized kayaks from his home in Groton, Connecticut. A bespoke piece can range from $9,000 to $37,000... After he has acquired the board, Schade strips it into thin strips to make the building form of the kayak. He goes to great lengths to place the strips back together in the order they came off so that the pattern and grain of the wood remains consistent.

  • Kayaker Circumnavigates Ireland - Portsmouth News (UK) - November 19: Imagine spending 62 days on your own kayaking around Ireland. It might sound lonely but for Paul Alexander it was the adventure of a lifetime as he went solo and unsupported around the island... Paul camped on the beach every night of his two-month adventure. He survived on tins of fish and rice. He also caught some fish. And over the course of 62 days and nights he ate 200 bars of Snickers. "It was an adventure. It went well," he said. "I got all the way around the island. I had three or four hairy times when I was living on the edge. I capsized once. I was in the water for 45 minutes." But amongst his adventure, Paul experienced some magnificent scenery and even spotted some wildlife including whales and sharks.

  • Learning lifelong lessons in outdoor education - High River Times (AB) - November 18: Twenty four Grade 6 students from Westmount School journeyed from Okotoks to High River and made a splash with their kayaks at the Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex pool on Nov. 7. As part of the school's new outdoor education program, students are able to take part in alternative physical education activities such as kayaking, hiking or camping. "The idea here is to expose the kids to more outdoor adventures," said Steven Kotowich, an outdoor education teacher at Westmount School.
