It’s not enough to have some kayaking skills, you must be the ocean. You must look ahead, feel the surge, know the ocean’s power and become one with it, so that the kayak is no longer your boat, but your body. It is merely an extension of your consciousness, not a thing apart, but one with you. You must make it dance over the waves, skip across the sea and flow with the tides and winds. Only then will you be totally immersed in the fullness of power that is the Earth’s heartbeat.
