Re: Pyranha S6

Contact your local shop and depending on the severity of the crack see if they are able to weld the seat. Alternatively buy another s6 and salvage the seat, i very much doubt if you could buy a new seat. A final option would be to either reinforce your seat with dense foam or entirely replace it and...

Re: 9r II Thoughts

Paddled the 9r II yesterday evening at CIWW on 10 cumecs. Its obviously not a creek but probably the easist and best demo location available especially for £15. I'm 90kg and a consider myself a competent G4 paddler, for example i would happily solo the upper dart at a medium level. I had about 5 run...

Re: 9r II Thoughts

I've got a Tuna 2.0 so it would be good to run them alternatively.

9r II Thoughts

I really liked the original 9r but at just under 90kg dressed i was just too heavy.
So with the increased volume of the new 9r II my hopes are raised again!
I will demo it at CIWW but has anyone got one at my weight and can share their experiences/thoughts.
Cheers Simon.

Re: Weird and unusual rapids

At the start of the Sesia Gorge section there is hole that surges from flat to 5ft deep hell which I've never fancied running.
I've only ever seen a similar feature at the Bitches which is understandable but never in a river to such a dramatic degree.

I have a Riot Trickster and it's surfs better than in river paddles although at 85kg im pushing its capacity on the river.
Incidentally it's for sale if your interested.

Re: Dagger Nomad deck advice

I had the same issue, i think part of the problem is the cockpit rim design as the water around the rim cannot drain away so your constantly sat in a puddle.
I used a snap dragon deck which is great on every other boat i have owned but very wet on a nomad.
Sorry i cant offer a solution.

European fishermen happily share the rivers. The BCU try and good on them but I am not aware that they have made ch...

Re: pyranha dagger max 8.10

No boat is designed with an undulating bottom, its what happens to older boats that have had a hard life.
It will effect the boats performance personally I would look elsewhere.

Re: Broken nerve

We all have self doubt and come through it in different ways.
My advice would be to have a 1 to 1 with a coach ideally one that you don't know and doesn't know your peers.
Hopefully a new prospective on your paddling will improve your ability, confidence and put a smile on your face.
Keep paddling!

Re: Your best cock-up (not carnage)

I clambered over the central rock at the bitches to drop onto the play wave and dropped my boat into the pool only to see it skip around the corner and shoot off downstream without me.
Luckily someone rescued it for me.

Re: Difference between Stout + connect river

I think stout is the latest design of connect + for the internal fittings and is the top end spec rather than the cheaper more basic club spec.
Hence a lot of connect + fitted boats are reduced...but i could be wrong I'm sure someone will confirm.
