Breaking out?

I agree with both Adrian and Simon a breakout is quite complex so Simons simple start point is the best (its what we slalom coaches call an ideal approach). Something I see quite often when coaching non slalom paddlers is that the paddler sees the getting in to the eddy as the end of the breakout ma...

White Water in Sussex?

I heard about this a few days a go but missed the date for voting

http://www.eastgrinstead.gov.uk/news/#161

I can't find any mention of the result of the competition and I would love to know where the water would be coming from?
From the fire station across the road perhaps?

Yep, River Mole is in Surrey its my local and I have been paddling it for 20 years or so. I have mainly (but not always) paddled it out of the fishing season and I have never had any real problems, the odd catapult of maggots from fishermen, lines for slalom gates cut down depite having permision to...

camera cases

I use an Otterbox 9000 its a real snug fit on my camera and has space for extra bits. I chose this style because its long and thin and fits in to the drinks bottle holder between my legs in my Lil'joe. Also smaller seal area, less likley to leak maybe? It also comes with belt clips so you can attach...

Pavlov's Dog Theory - Conditioning

Lil'Joe

Bought a LilJoe earlyer this year for pretty much the same reasons. I would agree with Ol the LilJoe is not an out and out creeker more of a river runner. Your description of yourself could be me and I have found that the LilJoe has plenty of volume to handle any G4 in the UK. The flat bottom has ta...

The Yellow is bright isn't it. http://community.webshots.com/s/image14/7/53/74/168375374ypDUQX_ph.jpg Good for finding when its goes of down the river on its own, and good in a group in hot sunny places as all the flys and stingy things go for the yellow and leave everybody else alone.
