Wildlife photography from my Wavewalk 500

By Hendrik Broekman

Massachusetts

It took a while, but, after my broken wrist, I’m physically back to normal.
My wife and I go paddling whenever we can, but still not often enough. The Wavewalk has yet to be on something other than the Sudbury river.

This year I finally started posting images from some of our late afternoon excursions. You can find some of them at https://www.mu-43.com/threads/sudbury-river.93493/

I find the Wavewalk very steady and have confidence taking not-easily-replaceable photo gear on paddles.
The craft is easily enough driven and tracks nicely. It’s a great workout and a kick to be out on a relatively underutilized body of water.

Thank you for coming up with the idea for the Wavewalk. I simply have no interest in using a typical kayak. I just don’t bend that way and I doubt I’m alone in that regard. It has given my wife and me another shared, meaningful activity for our retirement.

Here are some photo art that I have taken for my 500 kayak on the back waters for the Mississippi.

I have found a very inexpensive seat for my 500. It is a cafeteria chair I got for $3.00 at a yard sale. Because of the shape of the legs it fits over the center of the 500 and the cross mettle supports on the chair fit into the slots on the 500 just right. I did not have to cut anything just set in the 500 and slide it so that it locked into the slots.

I have some lower back problems and can not sit in a normal kayak and the 500 works so well for me. I do get tired easy with out any back support but now that is not a problem. I hope that others that have the same problem will benefit from this info.

First bird photography trip in my W500 kayak this year

By John Fabina

I started the kayaking year with a bird photography trip. There are no leaves on the trees yet, so spotting and shooting the birds is easier.

There will be plenty of time for fishing in the coming months.
