Re: Delphin 155 or Scorpio LV

Oban sea kayaks. The Virgo will have to be very good to tempt me away from the Stratos, which for the price is a lovely kayak, ok the hatches aren't that great and its only single layer plastic, but its a great sporty little kayak, depends what you want to do though, it would be less than ideal for ...

Re: New P&H model ?

The day hatch behind the cockpit is of limited appeal to me, would rather have a bigger space for trolley etc, the little hatch in front of the cockpit more useful for cameras, snacks etc.

Re: Advice on second hand Kayak please

May be worth looking at the point 65 range of sit ons, these are sectional can be taken apart, so if you have the 2 seater, you can leave one section out to make it a solo kayak.

Re: Why don’t manufacturers update their websites ?

I wouldn’t expect them to have permanent IT staff, but would expect than when introducing a new product that they would try and market it, with the internet being the most obvious way with the widest audience. I did have a reply from P&H regarding the Virgo, they are still finalising certain details...

Why don’t manufacturers update their websites ?

Looking at getting some info on new designs such as the new Northshore evolution range, Rockpool bach and the P&H virgo/glassversion of virgo, we know they are out there so why don’t the manufacturers have up to date info on their new models ? Seems odd that they would not be promoting these models ...

Re: Sea Kayaking Clubs in South Wales?

It is, perfect for pottering around the coast, surfing and easier rivers, though have seem a video of one being used in grade 4, if you have Instagram look at liquidfusion, they use them for fairly extreme rock hopping. I had a mate try mine who had used SOT kayaks and he loved it. You can try mine,...

Re: Sea Kayaking Clubs in South Wales?

I think the FB lot just divided into small groups who just do their own thing, when i was paddling with them it seemed to be going a bit “hardcore” for my tastes, I tried organising a few more relaxed trips but most people seemed to want epic trips, or big distance, so i gave up with them and paddle...

There is sea kayak Cymru on facebook, they organise trips, I would also suggest getting in touch with Escape watersports or Up and under, they both have demo sea kayaks to try. Coming from a Tarpon maybe try something like the Dagger Stratos, not a full on sea kayak but a great design that will do m...

Re: Romany Classic and Atlantic lv, the same but different?

The Atlantic LV started life as the Shoreline, quite a long time ago, it had just two small round hatches, newer versions played with large fibreglass hatches (shoreline fuego) and has now settled on its current deck layout, in my experience the Romany felt very different, unfortunately they seemed ...

Re: An interesting Ebay Kayak.

Obsolete? No, some of the “older” designs are considered classics with good reason, I think Valley have gone back to the original hull on their latest Nordkapp, after years of dicking about with it, and its good to see something other than Valley and P&h on the water !
