I indulge myself by sketching about this kayaking hobby as I commute to work each day. It is a real true and personal adventure for me to come up with an idea and then sometimes to see if it really can work out to something that I enjoy to touch, look at and use. One of the skin on frame kayaks that I have come back to sketching every now and again over the past few years is a surf specific kayak. A specific type anything has tightish specifications and so the real challenge here is to see if generally traditional skin on frame techniques combined with some strong aesthetic desires combined with a tight program can be entwined to produce some sort of a powerful result. A process of sorts will be documented in the Boat/Accessory Building section ( http://www.westcoastpaddler.com/buildin ... .php?cat=2 ) for you to sequentially follow along the disjointed path. If you have questions or comments, feel free to post them in this thread – but I cannot promise that acceptable replies will or can be given as I sure do not know all the answers yet! But there is purpose, and there is drive and there is vision. And there surely is an intention to have some fun along the way . . . . . mick .
