Renee and Sipke have over 30 years of paddling experience, most of which have been spent using and teaching traditional paddling skills. Enthusiastic about sharing and preserving Inuit culture, they work persistently to bring the delights of traditional skills to everyone they meet. Recently returned from the Greenland National Qajaqing Championship in Aasiaat, Greenland, they've acquired a deeper respect for, and love of, all things and all peoples Greenland.

 The Kayak Paddle Timewarp: Contemporary vs. Traditional Paddles

(scheduling yet to be determined) 

The "Skinny Stick" (the "Greenland" or "Aleutian" or other traditional blade) may seem a world apart from European paddles. Well, they are - and they are not. Come explore the differences, the similarities, and the uses and techniques that are specific or similar to each. Learn when and how to choose to use which paddle, and where to find resources on selecting, purchasing or building your paddle. If you are new to kayaking, or contemplating the addition of a traditional paddle, this is a great place to start.



 Traditional Greenland Rolling Demo

Pool - Clarion Hotel Sun 2:00pm-2:20pm 

Do you know that there are over 30 different ways to roll your kayak? Greenland rolling is a combination of skills and fun! Some of the rolls are necessary for survival as an arctic seal hunter, some are the result of fun and friendly one upmanship competition. Renee, Sipke (and friends), participated in the Greenland National Qajaqing Championship in Aasiaat, Greenland in July 2017.
