Jon Richer shared his passion for boat-building by leading a West Greenland Kayak workshop. Frames shown here were created in 2 1/2 days of work.The West Greenland Kayak:
The West Greenland kayak is characterized by a flat low deck with graceful upsweeping ends, hard chines and a pronounced vee bottom. This is the premier boat if you want to learn Greenland style rolling. This is a sporty boat, typically low volume, well suited for playing in waves and surf. This boat has a small, ocean cockpit. These are designed to be form fitting, performance crafts- best suited for more experienced paddlers.
