Re: highest waterfall paddled uk

Some great beck bashing there using the ubiquitous Topo, would any other boat cope with that sort of treatment and abuse?

Re: Steve Backshall in Greenland

I have paddled with Steve in the past, but my wife was definatly not impressed when he seperated himself from the rest of the group in the ever changing ice flow, went against all her safety principles. I have to say that with all that ice curning about and the sub-zero temperatures I would have bee...

Re: Big lad Kayak

What about the large Nomad, a cracking creek boat that cannot be faulted in my humble opinion, that just gets better on bigger and more challanging water

Re: How do you break a boat?

With ease, normally via wear and tear on the water. 3 x Nomad's to date, 1 on in the Findhorn Gorge, 1 on the Hindburn and 1 on the Roeburn. Still I was having loads of fun and as usual pushing myself outside of my confort zone in high water.

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.

Small Nomad, you won't get anything better and you will probably pick on up second hand on here.

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?
