Dedicated to the Adventure.

While exploring the various Islands of the Broughton Archipeligo Marine park Chuck Kiene was visited by a curious Humpback Whale in near Hanson Island.

“We all have an opportunity to gain an experience like this in our lifetime”

Welcome to Kuskanax Paddlesports

The kayak above was hand-made by Chuck Kiene of Nakusp BC. It is named Black Pearl designed by Bjorn Thomasson of Sweden and custom designed to fit the owner. ” The satisfaction from making my own kayak, and paddling it for the first time was a very rewarding experience.”

Carving a cedar paddle added a unique sound, that must be seen and felt to be appreciated. as the water cavitates around the blade in the forward stroke, the sound resonates up the wooden shaft, and transmits to a harmonic sound and gentle vibration as the water translates its energy into forward motion, and the red cedar amplifies its sound!”

“Hearing the paddle ‘sing’ further connects me to nature.”
