  1. Simply Sybi

    'When dreams come true'... zo gaat het met ex-collega Otto, het creatieve brein en founder van de origami canoe Onak. Alle begin is moeilijk maar Otto heeft hem kunnen omringen met de juiste mensen, die met evenveel passie de droom kunnen waarmaken! Otto is natuurlijk van Gent en daarmee hebben wij dan eens het geluk dat wij de kano kunnen uittesten :) Bij deze is dat dan ook gebeurd, en laat ik jullie mee genieten van een zalige demo aan het Gentse Dok Noord.

  2. Egon & Simon on an adventure!

    Two amateurs taking the ONAK for a spin through Ghent city!

    Simon and I recently did an internship at ONAK, and we thought it would be great to tell you guys the story of our first paddle.


    Uncover the hidden side of the world’s cities on the water.

    For many people, ‘canoeing’ conjures up pixel perfect pictures of pure wilderness. Misty lakes, rocky shorelines, old-growth forests. With no sound but the wind and a paddle slicing through the water... 

    But you don’t necessarily have to head up north for adventure. If you live in the city like I do, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle in your own backyard and explore the city from a totally different perspective. First we take Ghent, then we take Berlin... En route!

  4. In-depth: Dressing for an amazing winter paddle

    We love paddling our foldable origami canoes in winter. When you feel safe paddling calm canals and rivers, like for example in our hometown Ghent, it's not that difficult to get dressed warm enough. Just wearing the clothes you’d normally put on when going for a hike will suffice.

    In this article, we will elaborate on how to stay comfortable when paddling in winter. We’ll also focus on what you can add to leave nothing to chance, because when you are always close to the water it can be dangerous to be unprepared. One rule is definitely true in all cases: keep some spare set of clothes at hand in a waterproof bag.
