My First Video Blog


A few weeks back my friend Shane and I decided to buy a kayak off Craigs List. We have been anxious to go out and try it ever since. Today we took it up to Canyon Lake to test our abilities on the water. I decided that I would try to record some of the adventure with video. I have posted videos to the blog in the past, but this is my first effort to make one coherent video to document an event. As you can see in the video we had a wonderful day with great weather. What you won't see in the video is how Shane and I capsized the kayak twice. Near by I have posted a screen shot for the specifications for our kayak, the Dagger Bayou II. According to these specs the weight rating is 450lbs - let's just say that Shane and I tip the scales a wee bit higher than that. That might explain the double dunk in the lake today.

At least you now know to research weight limits before test floating. . . . . :)
