As an active paddler, adventurer and photographer,  I created this page as a way of sharing the fun & adventure of kayak touring & camping and resultant  kayak photography as I have been fortunate enough to experience it, especially in beautiful sub-tropical Florida!

What I will offer you on this site are some really cool stories and trips with my unique style of kayak photography to match! Each story is unique in it’s own way and chosen based on location, historical interest, scenic value, difficulty level, or just plain fun factor.

My focus will be on tropical paddling throughout South Florida to bring you well documented and researched stories, trips and images – the kind you won’t often find anywhere else!

.

.

In the Kayaking Destinations tab you’ll find lots of pics and quick descriptions of many favorite local  South Florida paddling destinations and trips so you can see what to expect out there.

In the Aerial & VR Panoramas tab – see truly unique and immersive views of  the South Florida backcountry – like you’ve never seen before!

Trips, Stories & Adventures  feature more in-depth research and context into some very unusual and uncommon trips – for your reading pleasure!!

This site serves as a showcase for and to market my style of 

Kayakfari ART

 unique paddling inspired kayak photography and digital art available for purchase!

 It is also my hope to get YOU interested in paddlesports,  and many trips can be done by reasonably fit folks of all ages and abilities. Paddlesports includes kayaking, canoeing, SuP, and more, and can be a LIFETIME sport, especially in Florida since there is warm water EVERYWHERE, all year long. It’s also an excellent way to stay in shape, release stress, clear your head & put all your concerns into perspective all the while you’re getting a suntan! If you go out to paddle for a couple or three hours, it’s like you mentally went on vacation, plus the serenity offered from a post-workout natural endorphin high is hard to beat!! You simply can not be in a bad mood after a good paddle!!!

If you are just starting out with kayaking, I encourage you take a class from a reputable paddle shop so you can get started the right way with the right technique. If you’re not near any shops, another great place to start is through a meetup.com group in your area. Whatever you do, don’t buy a kayak based on price alone – make sure it fits YOU and what you want to use it for. A kayak is like clothing, you will want to WEAR YOUR BOAT and have it fit. One size does NOT fit all!!

    Hello Flex, We used to do some Kayaking back in the early 1990′s. It’s Glenn O and we paddled off Ft. Laud, MIA and the Keys. I have a blue plastic Prizum. I was surfing around MeetUp for Kayaking and saw your name. I surfed on your web site and have also paddled many of those same places and still go paddleing all over the state. Cool pictures and art you have. Maybe we can go paddleing sometime, drop me a line. See ya, Glenn O >’

    Hi Flex – nice seeing on yet another of your regular paddles, clearing the way for the cruise ships out of Port Everglades. Sue Sea and I have known you for years, and you were always a favorite of the Ft. Lauderdale Yakfishing Club. We hope to join you sometime on yet another adventure in our S. Florida Paradise…

    Best,
    Capn Jimbo & Sue Sea

    Love the photos. They’re really creative. For the little planets with you in it are you using a single capture with a fisheye or are you stitching multiple shots?

      Thanks Bryan! I’m using fisheye and stitching – there’s no such thing as too wide! ;)
