Probably ab...

Croatia, plenty of companies will rent boats along the coast.

Quite a few in Dubrovnik. Google it an you'll come up with a few names of companies.

This company was very good but I don't know if they'd rent you boats on their own.

You can park at the bottom near low force and walk up, its not very far to S bends(, dogleg, Salmon Leap). As a uni group we often didn't pay for parking if we were just getting changed and then shuttling, they seemed to be ok with that. They do do maintenance, I assume it is the people you pay that...

I'm not sure if it's in the right area but Wooda Farm in Bude is child friendly if expensive.

I stayed at a campsite at Watergate bay as well. Judging by the number of kids I guess it was child friendly.

Oh, and this will probably disappear as well, you didn't read the rule.

I think there's a reason why most people have Palm Cags, cheap and well put together compared to the competition. Very good customer service as well if you have any problems. I've got a Switch which must be getting on for 5 years old by now.

The NE around Newcastle is pretty short of shops from what I remember. The one we ended up going to was Carlisle Canoes. Certainly there were no local shops present at the Tyne Tour weekend. There's a TISO in the centre that stocks very limited gear. Probably some limited gear available in the surf ...

It happened to my Gorillas after I left them in the sun on an Alps trip. I cut the grips off and left them off on the left hand. On the right side there was a plastic bump to give the grip profile. I epoxied the bump strip back on then went round it with electrical tape. This is still going strong s...
