Knik River Alaska winter paddle video
« on: January 29, 2021, 01:36:29 PM »
This violates my "keep it under 2 minutes" rule but if you want 6 minutes of calming images it's not bad. l paddled downstream and took videos when coasting.....hence no video of the return against the current. Weather was balmy at 33f . SuptheCreek may recognize his footwear advice being taken  :)

Notice my Greenwater supplied Starboard Airline is still awesome.  8)

I am pushing the warranty in this temp but keeping it inflated keeps stress from the fabric and the water itself keeps it around 30f.

Went again on my the 31st, my birthday. I keep getting photographed....it's the combination of scenery and "that guy is crazy" I think. 2 different photographers caught a couple of cool images. And a selfie. Temp was zero to 3f.

thanks. I blew some cash on a drone maybe I can get something I take myself next lol. I find it interesting to see ice not forming under my feet in these temperatures.  I think the water is "warming" the board up to non-freezing temps.

What appear to be foot braces alongside the cockpit are a nice design touch.

That's the Starboard standing tray. Comes on all the All Star Airline boards. https://greenwatersports.com/shop/brand/starboard

I often scoot my feet out there and relieve pressure - hang half my foot off the outside awhile, then switch the pressure to that part and ease up on the inner half. I love it  - I didn't know I would - but I do :D It does make rolling up the board a "folding" process - it has "fold here" marks on the board to guide you, and the backpack is WIDE - but relatively thin. I do like this board. I also took the FCS mounts (that didn't come with any mounts to put in there :( ) and made a carbon-fiber stiffener/camera mount - kind of like the Red Elite.

Very cool mod.
Newer versions come with the Star Mount included.

Holy Freezus that looks cold! We dropped down to a chilly 52o, and I finally had to put on a pair of Levis, and long-sleeved tee. Brrrr....  ;) ;D

More power to you deepmud, don't know how (or why :o) you guys do it...but super impressed at the desire and determination it must take to just get outta bed in those temps, much less go out and paddle for miles in them. Respect. 💪🏽👍🏽🤙🏽

for a Californian you are pretty tough waiting till 52 and still no jacket ;)

GWS if you have any influence hit Starboard up for lacking stuff to buy after the paddleboard.  D-rings, the fcs mounts,  the cool adjustable bungee cord, might sell some dry bags etc......but nada on the website.
