Last weekend I went kayaking with Helen Wilson and friends around Trinidad in California. They are fortunate to live in a diverse paddling environment and near some very beautiful coastline. The challenging conditions there breeds highly skilled paddlers, quickly. I'll post some pics of my trip later. For now here is a video I put together of Helen rolling and doing "stupid paddle tricks". Did you know that Helen received first place medals in individual rolling, group rolling and the distance harpoon throw in the 2008 Greenland National Kayaking Championship?
