Yak Titan Drysuit 2013 - XL - Red and Black

Great drysuit. Used it twice but it's just a bit too small for my long arms. I'm 6'3" with extra long arms! Material is high quality and very durable. Over shoulder and relief ZIP both more reliable brass type. £350 including delivery and thermal fleece one piece liner. Please grab a bargain so I ca...

Re: Mekong - Information required

Had great fun with these guys in Thailand a couple of summers ago... http://www.siamrivers.com/home/

Still plenty of rivers to be explored and paddled in northern Vietnam around Sapa too.

Or do you think I would be better off just buying a project x now?
If you like your play machine fast I would wait! : )

For your weight and not being able to squirt your current boat, any of the modern designs... Molan, Project X, Rockstar... are probably not going to work for you. Could always try to pick up and older style playboat which are relatively cheap these days. Personally I find the older (longer slicier)...

Re: How many runs of the U. Dart will Rich Brooks do in 24 hrs?

Rich's dedication to training is admirable! He turned down a greasy baguette from burger shack over the road and bought me one instead.

So... 19 runs!

I also heard the sun and moon, on that specially chosen date, align to increase gravity slightly and speed things along!

Awesome work. Is it possible to use the new nested categories feature to bring back the groupings of rivers by plays spots, easy, hard, extreme?
