Re: Paddling partners wanted to do White water with.

I'd be up for that!
Living mid Hampshire. Also, just getting back into it and happy to do any white water up to class 4.
Former L4 coach, so at least I used to know what I was doing!!!

PM me.

Re: Gath Helmets

Thankyou Denzil!

I was kind of thinking along the same lines - having previously owned a SR lid - never used the ear covers due to the fiddliness.

Probably going for the basic surf hat - keeping it simple!

Re: Gath Helmets

Thankyou Mr The Ski! I already have lids for the river - if I go for the Gath it will only be for surfing - don't want to wreck my nice river ones in salt water, and they're a little over the top for wave riding! I like the orignal surf hat, and I like the convertable - but which is best? Is there o...

Gath Helmets

Anyone use a Gath Surf Convertable helmet (with the removable ear thingy's)?

Opinions?

Thinking about getting one - or should I just go for the standard jobbie?

Thanks Denzil - I'll look into it!

Is this some kind of clever ploy by Mega - to get you hooked on surf boats, but frustrated with the cheap stuff so you buy a nice new composite one? Like some kind of evil pusher!!

Re: Surf Kayak lap / thigh belts ?

You mention your boat is a Neutron, if it is the original model rather than the RV then it will have those rubber thigh braces and the rubber will probably be past its best around the bolts by now if it has had reasonable use so these are probably not aiding you in staying braced in the boat. It ma...

Re: Expanding foam???

Glad I asked!!! Just thought I'd be lazy! (having used it for DIY purposes)

Guess I'll have to get the minicell foam and EVO impact out!

I have got a Jackson footbag, but need to pack out the bow a bit for a better fit = the bag sits just a little too far forward.

After many years of sliding down waves in a playboat, I decided it was time for rails and fins - so got a plastic Neutron. Went out in it for the first time time the other day - poo surf - 1 to 2 ft wind blown, but the occasional nice set coming through. Had some really awesome rides which totally c...

Re: Kayak theft caught on CCTV Camera and now on you tube

Have you tried linking this to the main Inland forum - stacks more people looking in there. The thief looks like an outdoor type, and very probably local - if someone knows him they will instantly recognise him.

Best Spraydeck for Surf?

I had a 'blow out' today at Boscombe artificial reef - which resulted in a very long swim back to the beach.
This was a good work out, but I really didn't enjoy it very much!
What deck are you kayak surfers using?
