Re: Warm When Wet

Id ditch the drytrousers for neo bottoms, and then wear a neo top under your drycag. I was paddling today in this and was fine. Drysuit is for 5 degrees celcius and below (well currently not a thing as it needs new neck seal). Thermals from a snowboarding range (ie sweet protection type) or merino w...

Re: Charges at Mile End Mill

I think theres a damn good reason why this isnt already done, and its probably because it would be rediculously warm and you'd get hypothermia from your sweat.

My thought would be you’d need to get on runs like the Wnion, Ogwyn, Middle Conwy, Lledr, Low Llugwy (Swallow Falls to Betws), up north Sprint and the Mint etc, Scotland the Etive, Orchy and Morriston

Re: Flying with Emirates

We had 3 of us, they let us pool our luggage so the girls with slightly heavier boats used some of my luggage allowance, 90kg between 3 was 3 boats, 4 paddles, paddling kit bags and personal kit, maybe 10 pieces of luggage total plus hand luggage

Late 2016, mah have been before the change, and we did only have playboats and summer paddling kit as it was Zambia , but 30kg in weight (take as much as you like baggage wise in as many different pieces up to 30kg) is all you need for Zambia totally !

Hey, you need to cock your front wrist and keep that back elbow tucked in. That and on the first roll, you need to focus on unstacking your spine, so your head is coming up after your body.
