I want to show off my newest Folbot kayak that just arrived this last week. I have been curious about this new boat with its white Elvaloy hull material. I really feel this silky smooth material has a nice way of cutting through the water as I glide across the big water on Lake Mead in the southern most part of Nevada. On this summer-like day, I go open cockpit style. I can easily rock forward out of my seat and onto my knees and extend up for a little better view.
The Folbot Greenland II features an open cockpit design that allows for some unorthodox paddle strokes. Here, I demo a power stroke from an upright kneeling position.
Here, a tired camera crew coasts along in their Folbot GII. They make for a cove with a nice little beach. Who's ready for lunch?
Looking back over the lake from our lunch spot, we are about 3 miles out of Boulder Bay on the other side. The white stripe across the base of the black hills is the bleach marks indicating the changing water level caused by drought across the southwest.
After lunch, I scout around looking for treasure. I use my handy little viewing tube to see below the surface.
