Wildlife photography from my Wavewalk 500

By Hendrik Broekman


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.

  1. Thank you Hendrik,

    It’s great to hear from you after such a long time! 🙂
    I’m glad to hear that your wrist injury has finally healed after that accident, and I’m glad to hear that you’re enjoying your W500.

    The Sudbury river is beautiful, especially the area of the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. We used go paddling and hiking there with our kids when we lived in West Newton.

    Great photos!!
