      We had some days with North East Wind and Waves. This is Falshöft Beach on the coastline from Flensburg to Kappeln. On the open baltic sea.
      As a child I spent my time there playing in the sand and now it was even better playing in the Waves.
      Unfortunately North Wind brings low temperatures with 10 degrees. But Eastwind brings always the Sun :-)
      I assume this was the last day without the dry suit and long undertrousers.

      A Chennai environmentalist, who uses paddling as a means to sensitise about conservation of water bodies, has donned another successful tag by paddling on a lake near the world’s third highest motorable pass last week.

      The three-time Limca book recorder is now the first person in the world to have paddled on Tsoltak Lake, situated at an altitude of 16,618 feet.

      M. Kumaran, a geologist and a paddler, had to battle acute mountain sickness to perform stand up paddling at a Himalayan lake, Tsoltak near Chang La pass.

      He has thus surpassed a previous record attempt of paddling at Suraj Tal Lake, which is at the altitude of 16,000 feet. His plan to paddle at Pangong and Tsomoriri in Ladakh region faced many obstacles due to curfew in Srinagar.

      “We could not follow the initial plan of flying to Srinagar due to curfew there. We took a road trip from Delhi to Leh via Manali by crossing world’s three highest motorable passes,” Kumaran said.

      “Even though we took proper breaks, we suffered mild to moderate acute mountain sickness, feeling headache and shortness of breath,” he added.
      The clear September weather and non-frozen waters of the crystal blue lake near Chang La pass facilitated Kumaran to paddle for 45 minutes.. It was risky as a fall in glacier water could result in hypothermia, a dangerous drop in body temperature.

      “My previous paddling experiences on choppy sea waters at Chennai coast and on other water bodies helped me to paddle without a fall,” he said. Paddling in Himalayan lakes is often met with many challenges – both climatological and religious.

      “Many high altitude lakes have a religious connection and do not allow human intervention. A few of the high altitude lakes are at Indo-China border, making it difficult to obtain permission,” he said.

      M Kumaran, an eco conservationist and stand-up paddler from Chennai has added another feather to his cap after he paddled in Tsoltak Lake in Leh which is at a height of 16,618 feet from the sea level. But that was not all — he immediately followed it up with another paddling attempt in Nubra Valley, which is near to Khardung La Pass, one of the highest motorable roads in the world. Kumaran is already a three-time Limca Book of Records holder in stand-up paddling and he says that all his efforts are to promote the sport and also sensitise people about our water bodies.
      Kumaran, who currently works in Gurgaon, started off from Delhi to Leh via Manali by road early this month. "The first challenge was to fight the altitude sickness leaving me with headache and shortness of breath. First, I got acclimatized to the conditions at Leh for a few days before I went on to do stand-up paddling in Tsoltak Lake. A few days later, I paddled for about 45 minutes and thus became the first person to paddle in Tsoltak Lake," says Kumaran, who is now in Chennai.
      The successful attempt in Tsoltak Lake gave him confidence to try out paddling in Nubra Valley. It is where the Shyok River meets the Nubra River. He says, "From the valley, I paddled 5km downstream in Shyok River, which originates from the Rimo Glacier, one of the tongues of Siachen Glacier. From the origin, the river flows towards south east. But at one point it kind of takes a U-turn and flows to north west and goes to Pakistan."
      The Shyok River is also called the river of death because of treacherous currents. "There were rapids and that was really challenging. This apart, the temperature of the water always remains very low as the river originates from a glacier. That keeps the water extremely cold and a fall in the water would result in hypothermia, a dangerous drop in body temperature. But my experience paddling in choppy sea waters helped me maintain balance and ensured that I didn't fall off the paddle board. This is again a first-time attempt by anyone in Shyok River. I have documented both the attempts and I will be soon applying for Limca Book of Records and Guinness World Records," says Kumaran.
      So, what's next? "I am going for a continuous 75-day expedition from Devprayag to the mouth of Ganges. I will be paddling with an international team and the expedition will start on October 16. Of course, we're trying to create a record, but more than that we're looking to create awareness about the need to save Ganges from pollution," concludes Kumaran.

      I was out for an early one morning SUP when this one single dusky dolphin came to play. There is some footage of a small reef and then as I head out into the bay, this dolphin came to say hi.
