Arctic Sea Kayak Race (ASKR) is held every year at Vesteralen, Norway. It is far up north, above the arctic circle. It is an event for five days ending in a kayak race. ASKR are approved for the second time as ICF Surfski World Series Event. It takes lot of preparation to join a race like this and I have hardly done anything so I’m planning to missionary our philosophy to the rush paddlers – bun paddling! Dawid Mocke, Sean Rice and Joep van Bakel are among the participants in the race. I hope they will enjoy the buns! We are leaving tomorrow and will stay in Norway for 2 weeks. 🙂
Buns from Pågen (Gifflar) are perfect for picnic paddling.
