Not known for kayaking.... but in a kayak!

Post by waverley610 » Sun Jan 15, 2017 11:28 am

Photos or videos of famous folk out kayaking?!

I'll start the ball rolling with the letter 'J' Muppeteer Jim Henson and claim a bonus point for awesome retro-ness.....can ayone possibly top that? Bring it on!!!

This one is an easy guess, you get bonus points if you can name the photographer! (Also a boater)

Canoes, kayaks, they all look the same!

Not Mr Dart. He's on the Tele but he likes the great outdoors.

I'm sure I saw Ed Smith linked with the Ed Byrne thing on facebook; photography being his main line of work would have led me down the thinking that it could be his photo, but then I notice you have already linked to the full article, where all doubt is taken away....

Sort of, more a case of wanting to link Ed's cracking photo article for paddlers to see :D



You are getting no clues on this one then, well maybe I'll give a second photo if nobody gets it in a few days...
