Re: Is it true that.........?

Pyranha, Zet, Lettman, Waka, Exo, Prijon, Kober, VE etc. I think we can live without US kayaking products pretty well.

Re: Not managing to pull a spraydeck

Thats because they are experienced and can effortlessly do what beginners have to really think about I think it's more likely they were looking for an excuse for having swum! What a thing to say! As if they'd want to pass the blame onto some poor helpless equipment......next they are going to be bl...

Re: Not managing to pull a spraydeck

Very very odd! All my friends say, after swimming, that their decks "just opened", or better "exploded", by them selves. Also the tightest ones, I R Royals, Seals Pro Rands, Peakuk Creek decks, just "popped out", "exploded", " opened by them selves" etc.

Pyranha Ripper Small?

Hello!

Has anyone paddled Pyranha Ripper small? My wife is very interested in it, but no possibilities to test. For my eyes it very narrow and long.

Re: Do you need a backband?

It might be possible, that some world class freestylers do not have a backband, but then they for sure have a strong seatbelt (like aero plane seatbelts) in their freestyle boats! So has Bren Orton also, I think. I answer to my own answer. How many of you has been competing in freestyle kayaking la...

Re: Re: WANTED : RAD195 or FUSE 64

Chris, have you tried WS Moebius? It is big as hell. I, 190 cm and 95 kgs, am all a much too small tiny boy for it, I think it needs a man more than 2 meters and 120 kgs to be good.

Re: Pyranha Loki - any good?

A helpful hint for you Loki paddlers: take the pads out from thigh braces. It gives a lot more foot room and better sitting position. Just 4 screws on each side. The thigh braces are comfortable also without the paddings.

Re: Who's had coaching then?

There is no creek boat that will do a pivot turn! Liquid Logic Braap?! I think slalom has a really big correction to river running. The gates are just must make places on the river, and you often have to cross to different gates from very awkward places. So slalom forces you to be able to read and ...

Thank you! Our local Palm dealer can get Gradient shoes, so I ask them to order them to the store, so we can try them with a drysuit. Much better than ordering from some net store without beibg sure about the right size.
