G’day from kimbo based in Far North Queensland, Australia.
I thought I’d introduce myself (I looked for an introductions section on this form but couldn’t find one).
I live at Mission Beach which is famous for World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforests, the Southern Cassowary, the Great Barrier Reef, Dunk Island, tropical cyclones and great coastal and nearshore paddling on the Coral Sea and nearby Family Group Islands - that should get you googling!
I am 60 years young, big tall bloke (male) enjoying married life and good general health and with an excellent work life balance.
My current craft is a second hand 5.1 Winner Otium sea kayak that is soon to be outfitted with a 1.5m Pacific Action sail. I am gently guiding my wife in the enjoyment of coastal and nearshore paddling on her 4.2m secondhand Winner Dreamer sea kayak. The secondhand Winner kayaks are Chinese plastic versions of similar designs to more well known craft and fell into our grasp at insanely low prices.
In the distant past I surfed competitively on monster green waves on the Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean with a 2.1m custom fibreglass waveski strapped to my butt. Huge fun when I had the weekends to devote to weekend surf safaris but was hard to maintain surf fitness as life became more complicated.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
