Gerne mit dem Kanu auf dem Wasser

Hi - I am an enthusiast bushcrafter and I will take you with me to nature.

I am a certificated outdoor-coach and -trainer, with a lot of experiance. I do courses, retreats, recovery, recreation, personal coaching and creative porjekt-develepment. For all this tasks nature is the best setting you can find. That is why I will do it outside - If you like an a canou on nice river ...

I did this with another canoe

After a 3 days Haik with the scouts (you can find the trip on www.outdooractive.com) we finally had our last camp at the big woodbridge in Kössen. There we were picked up by a rafting team, which brought us - 30 scouts, who all had arrived from different haiks at this meeting-point. Because of the long dry periode of the weather the water was really low. I think with a good technike you can manage the river in an onak, but on one or two sites a sprayhood would be fine.

So I am still thinking about building one.

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Canoeing on Balaton Lake

for the first time canoeing on a lake. It is fun. The boat is fast and turns well.

I did this with my ONAK canoe

I was on my way to Hungarian Music-Festival „BalatonSound“ where we perform. (If you want check out www.foolpool.de) So the festival is at the Balatonlake and we have a lot of free time in the morning. This was the reason, why I took my canoe with me. First Stop on this long journey from Basel to Hungary was my parents home, living in Laufen, near Salzburg. When the train rolls into the station, it goes across the salzach, and I got the Idea not to continue by train, but to unfold my oank anf travel home on my own keel. It was a bit Tricky, because of all the material (laptop, ...) and the Salzach is not a easy river. It come from the mountain and has some difficulties. But I did, Once a Wave come in, so I really have to think about a sprytop. I become dark, an the feeling to paddle in the dusk is on one hand grat.I saw a beaver hunting, on the other hand you have to canoe by your ears, because you can hear rocks before you see them.

Great adventure backdoor. Easy to do with a foldable canoe. Spontan.

And I did a new record: FOLDING UP in 18 Minutes ...

Interested in a similar adventure? Just ask your onak-ambassador: www.outdoortrainer.ch

 

Birs 

I did this with my ONAK canoe

This was a great ride - wow ... and I definitly need a spray top. Last days it were rainy, so the Birs had a lot of water - or on the other hand enough water to ride. Mostly calm there are 7 or 8 parts rough and whitwater - if there i enough water. (at low water you have to carry)

So I went from my house with public transport to Dornach station, went 10 minutes to the rver got in an than the adventure starts.

Twice I went out to look if its possbleto go on with the canoe. Once I decide yes - I try ...

I had to goout 5 imes to put out the water, becaus waves come over board and I was sitting in the water and I also turned turtle for the first time. Nothing happend to me, but I lost one of the aluminum poles.

After the advnture in the Birs the last kilometers on the rhine were easy. at home I got soure muscles

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Heute Abend "Kultur-Paddeln". Wir folgten der Einladung zum Sommerfest/Vernissage des Tienguely Museums.  Direkt am Rhein gelegen, nach Apero, Gesprächen mit Freunden und natürlich dem Besuch der Ausstellung Gerda Steiner und Jörg Lenzinger, "Too early to panic", paddeln wir bei einbrechender Dunkelheit den nächtlichen Rhein nach Hause. 

Da ich morgen mein erstes "date" als onak-ambassador habe, beschliesse ich das Kanu in gefaltetem Zusatnd nach Hause zu transportieren und morgen mit dem Interessenten weiter den Rhein runter zu paddeln. Kurzerhand aus den Rädern einen Bootsanhänger gebastelt und das Knau auf dem Balkon vor dem Haus geparkt.

 

Did some cultural paddeling. Went to a vernissage at the Tienguely Museum at the Rhine. After the party we went home in our onak.

By the way: the onak was as a table at the party also very useful. 

Lütisburg to Bütschwil

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Ha - endlich - draussen. Die Pegelwerte der Thur sind im unteren Drittel - für eine erste Testfahrt super. Bis auf wenige Steine sind die meisten Hindernisse überspühlt und gut zu passieren - ohne dass es langweilig wird, weil ab und an muss man das Kanu dann doch richtig auf Kurs bringen. Immerhin ist es WW Stufe2. Bis Ende der Fahrt schafe ich dann auch 2 Touchirungen am Heck und einmal - ich gestehe- wegen einer Fehlentscheidung laufe ich 50 m vor dem Ausstieg dann doch noch mit dem Bug auf einen Stein. Das Kanu dreht sich weg, alles bleibt im Boot - super. Am Ufer dann eine eingehende Besichtigung des Bootes - nichts!!! Wirklich, keine Kratzer weder hinten noch vorne.

Ich freue mich jetzt schon auf die nächste Tour.

25th of April - finally I made to a River WW II, so not boring not to hard for a first real ride. It was a pleasure. a great day, sunny. I had 3 time contact to rocks- but no damage on the canoe. It is amazing how valuable it ist. Congratulation to the onal team.

 

Test in Basel

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Mein erstes Mal: Zusammengebaut im Wohnzimmer - unter der Anleitung per Skyp von Dominiqu von onak - bin ich mit dem Kanu auf dem Veloanhänger kurz zum Rhein, um alles auch im Wasser zu testen. Das Kanu tut was es soll. Natürlich war ich die ersten Minuten noch etwas verhalten - klar bei einem neuen Boot, doch mit jeder Minute bekam ich mehr Vertrauen. Das Ergebnis: bis jetzt ist alles super - besonder der An- und Rücktransport. 

Ich freue mich auf morgen, denn da geht es in Berge.

 

My first time. After setting up the canoe in my living room. Dominique from onal helps me a little via skype. (The tripple thru is a bit tricky - and I was a bit frightend to damage something, but the material is really strong)

After this I let the Canoe out of the Window down to the street, put it on my bicycletrailer an went to the Rhein. There I tetsetd teh onak - nice.

 

Tomorrow I will do an other Test in a bit rougher water.
