going to Greenland

One alternative route for our Greenland adventure starting next week.
On Monday we fly out to Copenhagen and then take a flight to Greenland.
Temperatures here in Israel are in the high 20`s, so we go from barefoot and tee shirts to full dry suites and thick woolen socks and booties. I`m sure it will be a shock to the system.
We will also be leaving a war zone, with rockets trying to kill us on a daily basis and our army defending us. The timing is not the best as everyone knows someone in the defense forces and the level of tension is pretty high at the moment. Considering that we will be out of communication range for the duration, this does put a bit of a damper on the whole trip. Hopefully it will be over by the time we leave, but that`s not for sure.
It just goes to show that however much we plan and prepare, there is always a lack of control that needs to be taken into account.

small surf and a not natural rock garden for fun

How comfortable are you when going out against the surf?

Do the waves make you nervous or do you get a huge smile

Do you love the feeling of flying through the waves and bouncing over the other side? What size waves keep you on the beach?

The barnacle encrusted pylons can cause major bodily damage if you fall and rub against them, so its a no no for club members .

But if you are confident and prepared to take responsibility for your actions and have your own kayak 

Paddling slalom through the tunnel can be a lot of fun, depending on the state of the sea

I do it from time to time but dont tell my boss.

Meanwhile if you got out through the surf you probably have to land back through the same waves, can you do it without getting capsized?

She can,
 If you want to too, you can come to our skills lessons on Thursday evenings and brush up on your technique and who knows, soon you may reach a new level of enjoyment
