I live in Wicklow town on the east coast of Ireland. Having always lived within sight (or sound) of the sea I have been a lifetime sea swimmer and more recently a kayaker. My family bought me a kayak for Christmas 2006 which I took to with great enthusiasm. Subsequently I enjoyed doing a combination of skills training and outings around the Irish coast in both plastic and hard shells. My TRAK Seeker arrived in late 2014 chosen for portability and on the gamble that I might enjoy the skin on frame experience - which I truly have done. I have come to enjoy tidal races and the calmer sightseeing along the coast. Now looking forward to further exploring the Atlantic west and northwest coast and islands. With my new TRAK 2.0 and my older Seeker, I look forward to meeting anyone interested in trying out a TRAK kayak and sharing the enjoyment I have been having so far!
