The art of Zen?

<t>In this case not zen as in the sound of one hand clapping, but, as in the model type of a paddle by waterstick. This is the type of paddle I'm currently using but having had it a while I've never seen another one used by any else (have only ever seen one other waterstick set of paddles actually o...

returns

<t>You'd need to speak to whoever you bought them off, a shop, direct or what ever, if you don't ask you'll never know, bearing in mind how old/used they are, you might get away at just that, (think standard returns policy in other shops) realistically reasons for returns usually include defective m...

5:10 water tennie

<t>As part of an on going kit replacement/renewal I've been looking at the 5:10 water tennie, on paper they look great, good sized soul to prevent nasty spearing of my feet, drainage facilities, and two sets of straps to prevent them coming off, not to high around the ankle so fitting in boats shoul...

Oh! sit down your rocking the boat

<t>I once had a girl ask to have a go in the boat I was paddling at the time, seeing as it was padded out for me she struggled to get in and find it comfy, complaining of her child bearing hips, being wider than mine none child bearing hips (yes I'm a bloke, and no sniggering at the back, casting as...

place to stay

<t>A good place is the bunk house in balor, its close, cheap, has showers and a kitchen even has a drying room so gear isn't as unpleastant the next day when you put it on. As you come in to balor from the trywryn, and get to the T junction in front of the tower, turn left, 5-10 mins and your there....

DIY squirt

<t>Jim's right, I once tried to make one out of an old Master, we actually tried to cut bits out of the front as a way of reducing volume, then with a heat gun, soften the plastic to bend it back together, unfortunately due to the age of the boat, the plastic was brittle and cracked, making for a sl...

waterstick

<t>I use waterstick, very light, strong (they've taken a beating no problem) do different styles from the sexy looking all black (topend expensive ones, though apparently the lightest on the market) to a cheaper version (forget the name sorry :rolleyes ) also crankshaft versions. Fairly rare so kudo...

<t>Having just been out paddeling, I've been ill again with gastroenteritis as a result (2nd time in as many weeks!) and it got me to thinking, assuming it was a result of dirty water, how common a complaint is this and what can I do to limit the chances of catching it (other than making sure I stay...
