Re: 30 vs.45 paddle angle

I went to zero for that (and other) reasons, took about 15 mins to adapt and solved the problem.

Just a thought?

Watch what EJ does rather than what he suggests you should do?

Re: Tight spraydecks

Rather than pulling back towards you, try pulling towards the front of the boat, then pull up rather than back?

Re: Where did all the banter go?

I gave up because my sense of humour obviously wasn't and that people tended to assume I was being serious.
Issues regarding the bcu and access became quite regular and although often interesting were/are not really banter fodder.

Re: Bicep tendinosis and kayaking

Amazing how myths continue to be promoted by professionals who should know better? How does restricting the blood flow to an area help healing? There was a full blown clinical trial performed regarding ice baths a while ago. Conclusion was "that on multi day events such as Le Tour, it was worth the ...

Re: BCU Rebranded - British Canoeing

I was considering rejoining the BCU until I became aware (thanks to this forum) of the rebranding and decided I'd be better off using the money to pay for using CT's facilities if and when I go. I have looked at the logo from every direction and still don't get it? Why the emphasis on the 'R'? My ow...

Re: Wavesport Project X 64 for sale.

Large piece of humble being chewed as I type! Sir is back from paddling the alps and would be happy to accept £450 for this 'ere boat. To anyone who made an offer around that figure and was turned down I can only apologise :(

So £450 anyone?

Re: River Kent egress request

Interesting post in every respect! Last year I completely forgot that it was the last day of the fishing season and got a fair amount of Anglo Saxon hurled in my direction, hardly surprising under the circs but nonetheless it was nothing more dangerous than loud grumbling. Later in the week I was ch...

To those people who have made silly offers (£250 delivered for god's sake!!!) please don't expect me to take you seriously. If you're are genuinely interested in this boat, please don't expect the price to drop. I'm in no rush to sell and it really is worth the asking price. I am prepared to deliver...
