Thomasz Furmanek, Kayaker, Instagrammer

I’ve been following Thomasz Furmanek on Instagram for a few years already (right around the time I got my first kayak, the Oru Kayak, which is the same one Furmanek uses).

I liked this bit in his photographic interview with Daily Mail:

The kayak enables me to travel to remote places and show people these places from a different perspective than they are used to.

I think this is one of the reasons people enjoy my photos too. I have people come up to me and say “I love your photos, please keep sharing them”. And I think it is because they are seeing places they go to and have seen (parks, recreational areas, rivers) but from a completely different angle. I will keep taking them and sharing them because I love doing it.

Regarding Furmanek’s photos, though… he’s cheating. Norway is just stunning from any angle.

The new Oru Kayak: Beach

An all-new kayak from Oru Kayak, Beach.

It’s the easiest collapsible boat in the world to put together, taking just three minutes. Its 28″ width makes it stable and comfortable. The open cockpit makes entry a breeze, for paddlers of all shapes and sizes.

I love the design and it looks like there are tons of improvements, both obvious and subtle, that have been made since I got my Bay. The only thing I don’t like is the name. It is a bit misleading. You’d never want to use this one on the beach.
