A Very Young Presenter, Stand Up Paddleboarding, and Photos from Cape Town
Presentations You're never too young to do a PechaKucha presentation! Meet Archie, aged 7, who takes the opportunity in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 5) to introduce us to his friend Jeremiah, aged 6, who lives in Kenya. As we learn in Henrik Fahlen's presentation (in Swedish, from PKN Varberg Vol. 2), SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. Posters We kick off the week on the Tumblr blog with this new poster from Aalborg, for the city's upcoming Vol. 10. It was designed by Helena Sokol. You'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Photos Cape Town had its Vol. 21 just a few days ago, and here's a post from someone who attended the event that includes some rather nice photos from the event. Calendar There are no PKNs on the agenda for tonight, but tomorrow (November 13) you'll find the following four events: PKN Brighton Vol. 17, PKN Leksand Vol. 5, PKN Denver Vol. 15, and PKN San Diego Vol. 16.
