Welcome me

Flat water kayaking, rock climbing, white water kayaking, mountaineering, mountain biking and finally sea kayaking... That is my story, so far. A good amount of rock and water spray.
Grew up in a delta and started kayaking, went to the hills and started climbing rock walls, then I wanted to mix and went down rivers. In the quest of nice rivers I saw high peaks and wanted to climb them.
I've always used the bike as a transport so I decided to use it for fun when I moved to Sydney and mixed again rock and wheels. It was hot and the sea was close to home and mixed again in a plastic sea kayak staying close to the cliffs of our shores so close that the water is not blue or green but white!!!


  1. Welcome Fer, does this mean you might be setting up for photos a bit more on your paddles!

  2. Hi Mark, Thanks for the comment, you are the first!!!
    I don't know of setting up for a photo but I got me a new waterproof camera and intend to used it, so be ware those around me :-)
    I set up this blog to pour down here some anecdotes or thoughs that will happen after doing something, paddling somewhere lately but could be a ride or a climb. We will see what form it takes...

  3. Looks promising Fernando - I find these blogs provide incentive to get out and DO things! I look forward to getting some good shots and footage of you pushing the boundaries as you do!

  4. Welcome to sunny Sydney, Fernando!
    What took you so long to come over?...
    Enjoying reading your blog!
    The shot of "Practicing under the rail bridge" remained me of my own years in cold and noisy Europe.
