Re: Zero Feather Paddles Campaign

There you go, you can't argue with science! ;-) Ok Dan I won't. My tiny brain is getting addled with all these posts!!! Hee hee. You don't paddle with Clitheroe CC do you?

Certainly not wishing to get involved with Steve and Spyders comms, however, WOW, doesn't a zero feather debate cause some 'fun'!! Whoopeee!!

Re: Zero Feather Paddles Campaign

I have been paddling with 0 feather paddles now for about 12 months or so, my werner sherpas were originally a 45 deg and I tried the 0 feather that my coach was using because I had been considering a lower feather and couldn't decide how low to go with it. It took me literally about 5 minutes to ge...

Re: Confidence loss - Any advice?

As many others, (so very very glad I am not the only one), I was never that confident a paddler to start with, had a fear of water (though now much better) and have suffered massive losses in confidence more than once let's say!!!! But I do love the sport and that, and the support of my paddling fri...

This seems to be an ongoing problem (excuse!!) with pools.
