Re: Wavesport EZG42 - Red £300

Still for sale (& still selling new for £700), so bargain Christmas present for someone at only £300. Little use as my wife retired from WW years ago.

Re: Wet West fiasco

Having had such a long wait last time, I wasnt prepared to chance waiting this time with such a long drive back to Cumbria. The atmosphere & the quality of paddling on the Morriston is the main reason for me making the trip. The guys I've spoken to said it was 11.30 before it was runnable. Don't thi...

Wet West fiasco

Having been to all of the previous events I was happy to forgive & forget when there was no water in the Morriston 2 years ago. Lightening can & does apparently strike twice. I got there early today and gave up at 10.30 when there was no sign of water again! Last time it took at least an hour & a ha...

Re: River Dart tragedy 21/11/9 - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

Having narrowly escaped a similar fate almost exactly a year ago, I really feel for those who were on the scene.

From what I have read above the paddling community has suffered a huge loss.

Sympathies to all family and friends.

Re: river nith, midnight paddler.

Whenever the conditions on our roads deteriorate as they have done lately or as they often do in winter, I see drivers struggling and causing havoc due to their inability to cope with the conditions (and I'm not talking about when roads are impassable). Strangely I don't see campaigns in the media t...

I don't do it as I have seen lots of people who learnt that roll doing it on rivers rather than move on and learn how to roll properly.
Stick to the screw roll and if need be put a swimming float (armband) over the blade to help them understand where the blade should be.

We stayed on the municipal site at Pont de Alleyras which was very basic but clean and quiet with a friendly warden. Unless you are looking for lots of facilities it's the perfect place. You can even use the train to do the shuttle, unless like me you pick the day the railways all went on strike!!
