Re: Forgot paddles at the Orchy.

Was there today Murray (wed 10th) and saw no sign of your paddles either at top or in bottom carpark near the falls. Sorry fella.

Any slightly longer Lofoten trips summer 2019 ?

Fellow sea paddlers. I’m keen to do a few weeks in Lofoten next June but am struggling a bit with leads /info. I don’t want to do just a week and I’m keen that the daily distances are beyond the 17-20kms that some commercial trips advertise. Beyond that I’m pretty flexible. I want to see the scenery...

Re: Trouble getting paddles from MEGA KAYAKS??

They confirmed by Facebook weeks ago that they had shafts now in.... Several weeks later and another broken promise to deliver. Peter H himself told me last week that I'd get the goods this week (after 3 months of waiting). Surely the owner of the Company can make this happen if he wants to. I only ...

Re: Small or Medium Machno????? (or Zet Five)

Do the folk that have actual experience of a medium Machno have any view on seat position? My other boats in the shed are all with the seat forward of the midpoint to maximise my reach and power/pull strokes. Also not heard anyone say they have a Zet 5 yet??

Small or Medium Machno????? (or Zet Five)

Guys I have a medium size Machno but find it a bit boring on most local rivers (scotland). However I want a boat for the alps in May/June. Has anyone tried the small size Machno and want to voice an opinion? I'm 73kgs so maybe 80 with gear/BA etc. This is right on Pyranha's top range for small Machn...
