Sceneticker, Europe

After the latest insight on the past, back to current developments. And there is some real cool stuff!

First off, we have to redefine the 'European Scene'. It was meant Packrafters from Europe, obviously, but also Packrafting in Europe by anyone. And now we have a third category: Packrafts from Europe anywhere. Yes, Packrafts from Europe, thats right, our 'Quasi-Packrafts' (page bottom) from communist times made it to America. Offering them in our latest used sales, some were acquired by Americans! See the picture below documenting their journey:

'Quasi Packraft' B73 in Yosemite NP

Ted says: "Took it out for a test run in the Pacific Ocean of La Jolla Shores here in San Diego California. I packed the boat in 9 miles on the Lyle Fork of the Tuolomne River in Yosemite National Park this weekend.  Nice easy float out, with about 6 portages around rapids, falls, and trees. Boat works great! Looking forward to more fun with the boats in the near future!"

Packrafting with handicap in France, first descent for Arthur who is paraplegic, pretty amazing:


Mathieu, Arthur (young blond with pink helmet) and Dom packrafted the Allier River between Saint Etienne du Vigan and Chapeauroux in Lozere, France end of June 2012. The water level was really low but the fun was there anyway. More info on www.capexpe.org/

PackHoping between Canary Islands, Mateuz and Anna on a 6 weeks bikerafting trip:

We packrafted along the coast of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura (short bits), crossed the strait between Lanzarote and La Graciosa (hardcore waves) and back, it was slightly on the edge - going between the islandstook us more than 1,5 hours of hard paddling - against the wind and current. But everything was under control - weather and currents checked, paddles lashed. Went then from Faro the Teno to Los Gigantes, Tenerife, discovering beautiful beaches on the way.
