Wanted: broken AT Eddys

I've figured this has to be worth a try.

I'm after a set of broken AT Eddys, or to be more precise the right hand half (blade and shaft). Must be from a 194cm set of paddles. Anyone got any damaged ones kicking around that they wish to sell?

Cheers

Re: boat sizing

I've recently bought a burn. Weight wise I am bang on the middle between a small and a medium, a small fit me better and the medium felt too big. After having a think about the extra kit I'd have in the back for coaching etc I decided to go for the medium. After raising the seating position(which I ...

If you go to the contacts list in my mobile (which is always with me) and call Ice it will ring my wife, what she does not know about me is not worth knowing, apparently. is your phone secured with an access number/password? Mine is, meaning that people won't be able to access my contatcts, so I ha...

Re: Changes to Level 2 from 1st January

Don't panic mark. As far as I understand, the original ukcc scheme will still be in place so you'll be able to do it after the new year which will mean you are a L2 coach in paddle sport rather then being discipline specific

Re: Comfy drysuit

It is generally cheaper than the Multisport 4, which doesn't seem to carry any real advantages. What about the twin waist seal allowing a better seal with your spray deck and stops water running down your drysuit and in to your boat. In my opinion a twin waist is a must on a drysuit used for kayaki...

This is the first I have heard about this. They are bringing so many awards and qualifications out now that I feel it is becoming far to confusing for people. To add to the confusion Canoe wales are bringing out their own qualifications that have a lot in common woth the old instructor and senior in...

Re: Comfy drysuit

If you get a drysuit with a diagonal front zip you will not be able to get a twin waist seal allowing a better seal with your spray deck. I would recommend a pee zip. If you can stretch the budget I highly recommend a typhoon multisport 4 if not then my second recommendation is a lomo drysuit

Re: FS: Vauxhall Astra Estate 1.7 cdti (100) in Cornwall

I've never tried, but probably not. If you wish to test it I will require a deposit for the full amount in case you cannot return it in the fully working, clean and dry (I'll let you off if it's just the outside that's wet) condition that it is currently in. Don't forget to bring cash...I don't want...

Hi all,

Does anyone know of any MWE training courses running and where's the best place to keep out for them? I've tried BCU's website but, as usual, it's pants.

Yes I would accept £300, but I have a friend interested in the boat at that price too. He's said he wants to make sure he fits in it first, so is trying it towards the end of the week. I will get back to you then.
