It's blue. It's a Norsaq. "Traditionally the Norsaq (=throwing board) was used by the Inuit to add power to the throw when harpooning prey. A throwing board is well suited to train Greenland rolls and a great passing stage to learn hand rolling. Looks great on the fore deck."

Awaiting a traditional design wooden Norsaq, this little blue instrument does a surprising good job in training the Norsaq-rolls.

And it is multipurpose too. Also a great tool to dig a hole on the beach for wind shelter ;-).

Hi Tom! Good suggestion. Anyway: digging holes in the beach suits me better than hunting Narwhals ;-)
