Bent Shaft Paddle and Outrigger Canoe

Surfrigger - outrigger canoe Surfrigger - outrigger canoe

These two pictures of Surfrigger, my outrigger canoe, were shot about a month ago on Beaver Pond near Fort Collins. I used my "big" camera, Canon EOS 40D, with EF-s 17-55mm lens mounted on a tripod.

It turned out to be sort of a still life study with my paddle resting on a canoe bow. It was calm without any wind, but I still had troubles to keep that long (24') and light boat still on water for photography.

Surfrigger featured in two of my old video clips: Surfrigger I made in winter on the Beaver Pond, and Surfrigger II from Boyd Lake and Horsetooth Reservoir paddling. Both movies were shot with Canon PowerShot S40 in a waterproof case. It was time before my first waterproof Pentax Optio.
