November kayaking in Graz

In these cold days sun showed up just once and made weather warmer little bit. We took this opportunity and traveled to Graz. It was closest play spot where water level was ok. Saturday morning we, me, Peter and Vlado packed our kayaks to car and drove 250km to Austrian most cultural city Graz. It took 3hours to get there and half hour to find a park palace. The hole T3 is situated in the middle of city under the bridge. We had many spectators and they were looking on us and thinking what a crazy people are in the water when out is 8 degrees. But we were so happy that we can be in water again. We had awesome 2hours session. Hole was a bit flashy but every move was possible to do there. After first 30min when we felt like beginners we found a right energy and improved our rides. In every ride we got better and better. In the end of our training Peter could make everything there on both sides, Vlado learned a new trick- back loop and I scored some nice fenixmonkey's and ‘almost trickywoo’s. After this we went to buy the best kebab in Graz and tired but satisfied traveled back home. I hope that weather surprise us one more again and we will have a chance to make the trip like this again.
