Skin-On-Frame Kayaks

The best experience


I loved every minute of it. The class is masterfully planned and there is a beautiful presence of organic creativity throughout it, you can really imagine how they built then thousands of years ago to this day. The most impressive part is that the modern kayak handles better and weighs less than their modern counterparts.
