How Boats & Blades meet Water

July 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Tom presenting on the MIKCo Beach

A Special Presentation by Tom Bergh

How do the shapes of our kayaks and paddles relate to the water? Why do our hulls behave differently when on edge, and how can we use that to our advantage? Can we improve the angle of our paddle blade to increase support and power? And how does the dynamic, horizontal and vertical movement of water interact with our boats and blades?

Tom will discuss these variables and more. Bring your questions. You’ll appreciate the angles and shapes of sea kayaking in a new way.

Join MIKCo and SMSKN for this free event on the MIKCo Beach on Peaks Island on Thursday, July 11th at 4pm. Take the 3:15 ferry from Portland, or paddle over.
