It's yellow, 17 feet in length, good overall condition, compartments are dry, and the hatches are sound. There's some wear on the backrest but it's p...

Re: Beginner Kayaking

You don't say what experience you have. If you're a complete novice I would get some tuition first. Plans Brennin is very good but you should also consider speaking to Liverpool Canoe Club as they are an active club that holds training sessions

Re: Which kayak should I buy?

If you' re going to do lea valley and flat water then you should look at a crossover that good for up to grade 3. The Fusion, Ethos, or Katana would be okay. What I would say is that there's a trade off with crossovers on WW.

Does anyone have either a standard karitek j cradle or the karitek canoe/sot carrier lying around their garage that they want rid of?. I specifically want the karitek brand as I don't want the agro of drilling and trying to make things fit

Re: Rolling - newbie help

The trick is not to rush it. The DVD I found most useful was one called 'this is the roll' it was about breaking it into sections and control.

Re: B2, karnali or axiom? Please help

I have a karnali, had it for 3 years and am now thinking of upgrading, although at the moment the jury is out as to what. The karnali is great at confidence building, it's very forgiving but not that great for playing. I have to agree with the reply above in respect of the Burn, tried it for a weeke...

Views of the Dagger Axiom

What are people's experiences of the Dagger Axiom? I currently have a creeker but want something that planes a little better and low at the back (as rolling with arthritis can be awkward) any comments good or bad would be appreciated

Re: The problem with BA sizing...

I have the same issue, weighing at 82 kg, but what Dave says is valid. That said I find Palm BAs loose, even with a drysuit. However I did find that the peakUk BAs were a good fit. Also depends on your torso shape

I've been trying to find out the spec for the boat. Have you any idea of the paddler weight for the boat, and to judge the size, what size is your son... Inside leg would be helpful
