Re: choosing a boat

Being of similar height, and weight, I am going to suggest (if you can find one, they are hard to come by) a Bliss Stick Mystic, or even the Mini Mystic if your wanting something just a touch smaller. It is a semi displaced hull, and you get the best of both worlds I fell then

Re: Getting all NZ

No, they are no similarities between the Burn and the Mystic. I paddled one of the original (older) Burns, and I changed it to the Mystic. Ok at the time, the new Mamba/Raptor/Shiva/Stomper weren't available to demo at the time, but apart from that I did demo just about every other boat. But for me,...

Re: Bazner is getting a FLUID SOLO!!!

Lovely little video, but I suspect, that boat is irrelevant, and put that paddler in any modern boat, and it would have looked just as good.............

Re: Will Niagara Falls see a successful kayak descent?

I thought part of Shaun Bakers plan in creating a jet powered Kayak was to enable him to run Niagara?? The idea being using the jet to get enough speed up, to shoot out off the lip far enough, to avoid any tow backs and other associated nastiness

Re: Lessons learnt

This one was a quote from "Skinny"
If online, paddle hard, if off line paddler HARDER
Action is always better than reaction
If in doubt, get forward (I think that one is from Olaf's book, but not totally sure )
And that old adage classic, if in doubt, boof left
