SPIRIT ISLAND EXPEDITION, CANADA

TRAK Owners Henry Liu and Celia W. Zhen take on an epic paddle to Spirit Island, Maligne Lakein Jasper National Park, AB, Canada

A crystal clear moment on Maligne Lake. It was actually around minus 10°C, Anything came out of water would immediately have ice or frost formed on surface, very cold yet very beautiful... shot with my cellphone under panorama mode.

A TRAK 2.0 folding kayak fulfilled my 5 year dream. Thanks to the team at TRAK Kayaks!

OCTOBER 14, 2019

Another cell phone shot from our Spirit Island expedition. When the sun set down, temperature dropped extremely fast. You can tell water drops on Trak's skin and deck bag already turned into ice droplets. Being hungry and cold, we had to pitch up our tents quickly and had no time to play with our DSLRs. So just a quick cellphone shot before we started offloading the boats.

The boat is really fast! 12,6 Nautic Miles in 3 hours in open sea conditions around Frioul archipelago, with some force 4 wind and one 4 NM crossing with side wind... Thanks to the side jack for trimming! Definitely the Ultimate Touring Kayak!

LUDWIG FROM GERMANY

TRAK Pilot Mike Mangin with TRAK 2.0 Owner Ludwig!

Mike Mangin: Here is a quick photo recap of my trip with new TRAK 2.0 owner Lu. Lu was visiting Canada from Germany and arranged to have his boat delivered to Victoria BC and we spent a few days on Saturna Island getting acquainted with his boat. Saturna, and most of the Gulf Islands are an easy walk-on trip from Victoria (or Vancouver) and offer some great opportunities for paddling/exploring/camping. All photos by Ludwig Amann

GULF ISLANDS / LASQUETI ISLAND, B.C.

A small band of brave kayakers received their new TRAK 2.0 vessels and boarded a small ferry to unique island in the Strait of Georgia on the Coast of British Columbia Canada.

They launch on a four day excursion along the exotic coast of Lasqueti Island. The focus was camping and kayaking and skills progression focus of level one skills. They bonded as a team and made it back super charged for more trims on their own.

THAILAND

APRIL 2019

This early backer picked up his kayak just before the Thai New Year! He got it together, and got out there paddling on the Mekong River! Thanks to Nawa, Envida and the Tank Store crew for staying and meeting them until 10pm, so he could make it on his trip! And Simon was very happy to "meet this TRAK 2.0" after a longer time apart than anticipated. He is off on a trip to New Zealand later this month!
 
 
 

COSTA RICA

from Bethany of 'Her Odyssey'

APRIL 2019

 

Some sage advice from Bethany ("Fidgit") of the Her Odyssey expedition, after spending two months paddling the TRAK 2.0 on a discovery trip in Central America. They learned a lot about the kayaks, sea kayaking, and navigating many challenges along the way!

BERLIN

Discovery Day Nº 1

April 8, 2019

TRAK Pilot Nadja pulled something off in Berlin. After travelling from the Whitsundays in Australia, she arrived on a Friday, set up her new TRAK 2.0 on the Saturday, then led a TRAK Discovery Day with three new Kickstarter Early Bird backers on the Sunday! In a city steeped in history, and with a population totally suited to the benefits of the TRAK 2.0 - these Berliners have started their journey towards mastering their new kayaks, and to getting fully unleashed on the water.

PANAMA

Her Odyssey Expedition

MARCH 2019

Following the Her Odyssey expedition has been fun and empowering. These two ladies, Bethany and Lauren, were joined by Richard to complete a sea kayak journey in Panama and up to Costa Rica. This was a quest for them, and paddling the TRAK 2.0 kayaks represented an opportunity to really unleash.

The Maiden Voyage

JANUARY 2019

Three generations of TRAK Pilots embarked upon a self-supported expedition down an endangered river running through the steppes of Patagonia. The TRAK 2.0 gets its maiden voyage in one of the most remote regions of the Americas. Super cool!

For those of us with low budgets, I am hoping the prices drop by half at some future point, now that the developmental stage had passed. Until then, I continue dreaming of paddling one.
