The headaches were so bad that i e...

So say you wanted a boat with elite spec it would cost you £699 for any boat in the range from the smallest to the largest?

Simon

Hey Simon, are you still mountainbiking? had a good laugh chasing you in Mexico a few years ago! You'll probably remember me pucking up Mexican hot chocholate on that long hill climb then getting very dehydrated after a lift to the top. Glad to see your still into the great outdoors.

DB Fusion?

What ever happened to it? I looked at the pics of it when it first came out and it looked a perfect crossover surf boat better than a playboat and maybe not as demanding as a full on surf kayak? I think Nathan Eades designed it but I'm sure he paddles for Mega now. Anyone here buy one or like to giv...

The only place i've had trouble. Best avoided if really busy, like John said Saunton has more room with mellower waves.

It's the hard rails you tend to get stuck on the edge you definately need a good hip flick, back deck rolls seem to work better. There is a vid somewhere on an Irish waveski site that shows an easy way I'll try to find it. The Megas could do with adjustable thigh hooks like Pyranha use. Also surf bo...

Give Reed a ring as they will have a template for this boat and they could probably take in your existing one, or of course you could try Malcom at Mega. Or borrow a C1 deck to try that might fit too.

Center of gravity

Err I think your center of gravity will be higher in the boat making it harder to roll up but far easier to tip over.

Just wait till you get the sciatic nerve nonsense - brilliant I could hardly walk for six months ("yes quite normal it can last longer than that" said my doctor) funny thing was I could still cycle twenty miles a day almost pain free - just couldn't get off when I got to work though.
