Sea Kayaking in Newfoundland

I'm looking for somewhere in Newfoundland to hire decent boats and kit. Although this massive coastline has a lot to offer, it seems that there is very little info available (at least on this side of the Atlantic - UK). A number of us would like to organise a 2-week self supported trip but the start...

Re: Lost on conwy

Late last year found 3 trashed boats further down in the estuary and reported them to Holyhead Coastguard. If your paddles have washed out and travelled that far downstream it might be worth giving them a call on 01407 762051

Good luck

Just as the sea paddling world gets used to the Haghighi stroke, it now seems there's a new kid on the block - " The Deep Diggity Dig" Looks like a bit of a high brace / power face turn as compared with the Haghighi which is a low brace / back face turn. Nice one Leon - where will you take us next? ...
