Re: Pembrokeshire family kayaking?

Thanks markflip. Even if I don't get in the kayak in some of these places it's reminded me that after going to this part of the world all my life, there's a few of them I've not visited in a long time. So I'll be putting that right this year.

Re: Pembrokeshire family kayaking?

Re: Pembrokeshire family kayaking?

Re: Inflatable Kayak recommendations ?

I've seen a lot of suggestions for Gumotex when people ask about "budget inflatables" such as Decathlons itiwit. I've read there have been issues with the lighter material they use on the Twist. Does anyone know if that's not a problem now? If the twist is easier to puncture it would put me off. Che...
