Re: Gd 2-3 in the Oetz area early August

Thanks for the replies. Not seen rivermap before, it's pretty good, with more easier sections marked than riverapp. Any other recommendations anyone? Up to maybe a couple of hours away from Oetz? Cheers If you're looking for something further away, you could try the Eisack/Iscaro in Sud Tirol? Or t...

Re: Jackson Antix in the surf

My gut feeling is that the ripper will be better, as it's got harder rails in the midsection and stern.


If you're looking for a tailsquirting river runner for the surf, I feel your best bet might be the Soul Gonzo, just look at those rails!

Re: Do you need a backband?

"You don't need any back support †, provided you have back support ‡" To be fair, I think he's actually saying you don't need back support provided you have bum support. The question should perhaps be how far up your back does the support need to be / is it best to have it? I experimented when buil...

Re: Do you need a backband?

I fear this may be more of a comment on the quality of Pyranhas backbands. I personally replaced mine with a foam block, however the backbands in Jackson/GuiGui kayaks are much better for freestyle. These do a much better job at transferring force into the boat when cartwheeling, and keeping you sat...

Re: Playboating techniques?

Carlos's book provides some nice pictures, and a pretty good overview of the moves, but like most resources does lack a little with troubleshooting issues with your moves. It's always worth setting up a camera and comparing yourself to other boaters if you can, certainly the most effective way to wo...

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

Being a freestyle kayaker who went skiing for the first time with other boaters, being able to understand edge, weight distribution and similiar certainly helped. However we do tend to lead with our heads, which did make for some entertaining falling over when I was trying to carve

All of the boats you've selected seem suitable for what you want to use them for. Or you could pick something cheap off ebay for use in the river/surf?

Don't forget the Zet Raptor, or even a Dragorossi 88. Personally I feel that in the Creek/River Runner category, the Raptor is one of the better choices you can make, so it's worth a try!

Indeed, this certainly highlights the utility of a legacy/back channels style course, especially when the course is of class 3/4, and much less accessible to beginners to kayak on
