A quick note here for all kayakers, windsurfers, SUPers, and canoeists who make a point of checking BigWaveDave's website for all the low-down on weather, tides, and more. A windsurfer, Andrei Vojakine, who goes by the nickname Russian Dood on the BigWaveDave forum is being treated for brain cancer.
Click on the piratical image in the upper left-hand corner of the homepage for BigWaveDave to learn more about the Russian Dood and his story. The forum has begun collecting donations for the BC Cancer Foundation in his name. There will be a draw much like a raffle, but ya get only one ticket no matter how big the donation, eh? The donated prizes include art, jackets, a GoPro helmet cam and weekends at two of the nicest resorts on Vancouver Island.
Solidarity for the Russian Dood and all people being treated for brain cancer, including a relative of one of the Kayak Yak paddle group.
