Pelicase 1200

Pelicase 1200 Waterproof case for...well, anything really. These are the leading waterproof cases. I trusted this one with my small digital SLR camera (Nikon D40) on multiple kayaking trips where it was stashed in the back of my boat. As a result, it's a little scuffed but generally pretty good. The...

Wavesport Zero Gravity 48 in Red for sale

Hi, I have for sale this lovely Wavesport Zero Gravity 48 playboat as sadly I just don't seem to get out in it anymore. In fact, it's not been used for around two years and has just been stored. Because of this, the ratchets need some TLC. One ratchet is missing, the other works fine but has rust sp...

Re: Canoeists missing on Usk

I used to live with Gareth in Leamington. Really lovely bloke. Totally gutted to hear about this, and on a river I've paddled a few times with the same club.
Thoughts are with his girlfriend, family and friends.

Re: GoPro helmet mount advice

That mount is still an adhesive mount. It's a pretty standard mount but you use the various arms and elbows available to achieve the angle you want. You could still mount it how you want with a peak but you would need to use a couple off extension sections. It can always get knocked off, it's a risk...

Lendal 4-way split paddles, missing right blade

Ok, I have for sale my very nearly complete lendal 4-way splits. As you can probably guess, the right hand blade parted company from me and my boat on some river somewhere.

Re: Need a new backband for a wavesport,any advice?

Hmmm, the backband on a Habitat passes through the cockpit rim, if you want the original set-up I'd say contact a Wavesport dealer, otherwise probably one of the Immersion Research aftermarket backrests would work.
