Re: Custom drysuit for female?

Andi Riley at DAM Watersports will make one to measure for you. Give them a ring on 01234 - 267314 or email: damwatersports@yahoo.co.uk

I have short legs and could not get one off the shelf to fit either. Had mine 10 years now and still going strong, can't fault it.

Re: Isle of Coll - Advice as holiday destination please

Andrew, Coll is beautiful but regged. The beaches on the island are all accessable but some need a walk in to them from where you park your car, not too far in my opinion, 5 or 10 minute maximum. Some need more time, particularly those at the south end of the island. As said the surf on the west coa...

Re: Low Force

It only really goes at high water levels. Why not try the left hand line 'Jacuzzi Pool' on the main fall, its looks more intimidating than it actually is.

Re: Just for fun........

Right hand fall, centre slightly left, ideally with plenty of speed up and a good boof stroke for a soft landing. £100 should do the trick like Banzer but more would be better.

Re: waterproofing

I do the same as Denzil and also check regularly if any of the screws, knuts or bolts have come loose whilst kayaking, particularly if I have been on runs where I have had bumps or scrapes.

Re: Infinity Wezzit

Looking at the image I was thinking the Lower Tees get out river left at Winston Bridge, but if its further north than the Sprint?

I don't think its the Gruinard either, I have run it three or four times and not seen these signs when there.

Is it the Lower Findhorn?

Re: What to wear now it is warming up.

I have been in a short sleeved IR cag with a short sleeved thermal top under it, a pair of IR shorts and my creeking shoes for the last month and will probably be dressed like this for paddling now until the end of September and into October.

Re: Flying with Wizz Air

Make a bag with a draw string at one end to close it and tie shut (or get someone to make one for you), tape the paddle to your boat as suggested above, slide them in a tie shut. Has worked well with a playboat and paddle so should work fine with a longer boat too.
