The Skin-on-frame Kayak: from Sea Otter Hunter to Ultralight Oceangoing Ducati.
4000 years after the creation of the first skinboat, we humans still find ourselves enthralled by the beauty and technology of the skin-on-frame kayak. The earliest kayaks were built from driftwood found on the beach and covered in the skins of marine mammals. The appeal of these skeletal kayaks shows in the resurgence of traditional kayak technology in the sea kayaking world today.
Come hear about how the skin-on-frame kayak changed the course of history and allowed people to survive in post Ice-Age North America, how the Russians enslaved the Aleut kayak-hunters and nearly hunted the sea otter to extinction. Then take a look at modern skin-on-frame kayaks in use today, from expeditions to ocean surfing and fishing/hunting. Kayaker Kiliii Fish will also touch on his month long adventure around the rugged coast of Canada's Vancouver Island and his experience paddling the longest expedition in a skin-on-frame kayak in modern times.
