“I had no expectations for the kayak building workshop with Seawolf Kayaks other than hard work and a great boat when I was finished. I had no idea how it was going to go in between. From the very beginning I was thrilled with the incredible leadership and teaching skills exhibited by the Seawolf staff leading us student builders every step of the way. A very clear demonstration prefaced every step of the process. It was intense hard work all day every day for 10 days. But oh, so gratifying! I discovered immense joy in the entire process, beginning with the framing work and finally sewing the skin onto the frame; in making my new kayak. Creating this kayak with Seawolf Kayaks was the most fun I think I’ve ever had creating something. And the kayak is a living thing of beauty and grace that I will enjoy paddling for years to come. An unexpected present was the discovery that it smells like fresh cut cedar, even a month after completion!
