Kayak-legend Nigel Foster is a true adventurer. No destination is to far away, no region to isolated. The englishman always gets where he wants to. No matter if he has to go by waterplane...


...by jeep...

...or by land and air. No journey is to weary for Foster.

Foster does not care, if he is travelling alone...

...with a paddle mate...

...or with a group of pupils behind him. Kayak sport is his life – and that for almost 50 years.

Next to children Foster also teaches adults. Trust in the boat and the perfect control are part of the important skills that Foster teaches his students.

Change up the routine every now and  then. Foster with his colleague Jahfong on Orchid Island. First a round with a traditional boat, then the tour with his modern kayak.

Sometimes there is no difference between modern or traditional boat. Sometimes only a truck can help. Foster transports all his boats to Orchid Island to the next starting point of his tour.

A room with a view: Nigel Foster and his wife Kristin pitch up their camp in the North of Labrador in Ungava Bay. Nosy neighbors? Impossible...

No five-course-dinner, but warm food in the stomach. Foster cooks a few mushrooms over the open fire. Outdoor dinner a la Labrador...

A bright blue sky and seaweed under the boat. Nigel Foster's tours lead his students into far-away areas.

Not the easiest, but with enough precauting and an experienced tour guide like Nigel Foster no problem. The exploration of Tatoosh Island.

With the flexible kayaks you can even explore the caves along the coastline.

Dreamy weather, beautiful landscape. Nigel Foster leads his group along the coastline of the State of Washington.

Outdoor sports is nothing for wimps. The weather can change quickly. Water coming from all directions – clench the your teeth and pull through with it.

The water streets of Venice are a lot calmer.

Foster and his kayak group are getting ready to go to the Vogalonga festival.

Not as exciting, but just as beautiful. The little canals of Venice are a nice change for the old sea dog Foster. At least until the next wild adventure comes along...
