Re: Cheap but strong paddle with 0 or 30 degree feathering?

Ive paddled exclusively with zero feather since about 2006 I think. If you've come from a paddle that is around 30 degrees or less it probably takes about 2 paddling sessions to get used to it. The shops sell paddles with feather, so thats what we all buy and because we all buy paddles with feather,...

Re: Ladies paddling

There is a real danger here of creating a monster, then feeding it. I dont feel that a group of women getting together for a ladies paddling event constitutes a monster that we shouldnt feed, the feeling and ethos of the event really isnt like that at all. Its far more about paddling and really isn...

Re: First Boat advice. Riverrunning/riverplay

In the riverrunning/riverplay category the Z.One is awesome and well worth a demo.

The Loki is certainly a really good choice too, but is more playboat than river runner.

Re: Position in a nano question.

I find that at almost the same weight and height as you that the large Nano needs to be in the middle position. The front of the boat doesnt feel too big that you constantly need to be over the front of it and the back end has plenty of volume so you shouldnt be tail squirting all over the place. On...

On top of all of that you can speak direct to Stu and have everything made just as you want it. The price i...
