Re: French Alps levels

The Alps is a big place. The whole of the alps isn't generally shut, just regions. If regions are closed by the authorities, find rivers out of the area to paddle. Or spend a couple of days doing non boating activities whilst the levels calm. And help the raft companies clearing rivers. Or just drin...

Re: Sue's Canoes?

This sucks, and not the first friend who has had to close their canoe shop. Friends and local paddlers see the amount of support shops give, like turning up with vans full of demo boats to club nights, running demo days, supporting up and coming paddlers, giving time to judge, ref, help out at event...

Re: Paddling into your thirties

Do you like paddling? Do you want to put time and effort into increasing your fitness and rebuilding your paddling? If yes, then the barriers you describe will soon come down. Is it possible/feasible? Of course. I could describe my motivation, but that comes from within, is my motivation and from as...

Re: Are you better at kayaking if you do other adventure sports?

The biggest transferable skills for kayakers comes from canoeing, but kayakers get the hump when you suggest it! That, and those who are good kayakers are good because they dedicate time and effort to it, they'll also do the same in other activities and the get through the initial learning curves. T...

Just mess about and do what you like with your camera. And do slow mo's for no reason. Never stop filming. Always charge the batteries. Get a Hashtag, and beat it to within an inch of it's existence.

Re: Small or Medium Machno????? (or Zet Five)

Paddled the small and medium Machno. They are very similar, just a matter of scaling size. I'd say 73Kg is too big for the small Machno. Probably about 10kg over to be fair. Fun doesn't really describe very much to be fair. Machno's are fun, you can stick them in any eddy you want. They play well in...
