Berthold Hinrichs from North Norway collided with with a Humpback whale in his kayak on a daily trip in Gryllefjord at Senja last week. During his tour he hit a 20 ton whale or rather, the whale hit him when the mamal deceided to take an air-brake just underneath his kayak.
Hinrichs told later that he did not understand what was was happening before he was sitting on the whale’s back. Happily the whale slid off and Hinrichs paddeled away as fast as he could, saving his life. At that day the Gryllefjord was packed with herring and so was the number of whales hunting them.
