If you’re planning to go up to, say, Cape Cod to paddle and swim with the seals (yes, Johna, we’re talking to you), you might want to give some thought to your outfit. (It hasn’t been that long since Fashion Week, after all). Why the fuss? See video below:
Disruptive coloration (from a shark’s POV) can make you “invisible” in the water. Also, certain patterns can make you look very unappetizing (again from the shark’s POV), perhaps even poisonous. Read more about it here.
On a happier note—and equally exciting—is the news that Kokatat now lets you customize the colors on your drysuit! Jean’s has just arrived, made-to-measure gaskets and all.
What a relief, to no longer look like a seal. More like… a 5’8″ piece of candy corn. With glasses.
Studies show that sharks prefer bite-size Snickers, so we’re good. And it doesn’t hurt to blend in with your kayak, either. Next up: kayak camping on islands of Penobscot Bay, Maine!
