Re: Scary pic...

“I anticipated having Gerd in the foreground of the photo punching this huge hydraulic at its weakest point. Instead, he was thrown off-line by a large lateral upstream and dropped into the meat of the hole, backwards,” says Young. Can't imagine the oh shit feeling when you're about to drop into a h...

[Lost] Nookie Dry Pack

I lost my 80L nookie dry bag on Sunday 9th June in Langland, South Wales with all my kit including: Sweet Rocker (lime green), Palm Amp BA (lime green) and Palm Zenith (yellow). If anybody happens to come across it, I would very much appreciate it back.

Thanks

Matt
