I use Safeguard, but I have a campervan. I used NFU for my old van and probably still would if they did campervan insurance.

Re: Emergency breathing when pinned

The problem with taking air from the boat is you soon create a partial vacuum that prevents you drawing any more air. You can probably get 5-10 deep breaths (unless you exhale into the kayak). This is what we could manage from the DragoRossi system. This is hopefully enough in most situations though...

Re: board bags

2nd vote for Canyon Gear. I have one and have used it when travelling on non-kayak friendly airlines. On kayak friendly airlines I don't bother with anything as the bag obviously adds unnecessary weight.

Re: Commercial provider charge at Tryweryn

To be honest with you, I never had an issue with paying to paddle at the Tryweryn, I felt I was paying for the use of the facilities rather than actually paddling the river (dam releases cost money?). I almost feel guilty using their changing facilities these days. It was just easier popping into th...

Apparently you can buy the parts required to make it foldable from VW.

My votes for Best line would go to Ben Marr for the first descent of Site Zed and Best Drop would have to go to Sam Ellis for Cauldrons Snout. Agreed.
