Re: On the longer flatter trips.

In my opinion a creeker will be an absolute bore on a flatish water trip. At least with a playboat or a river/play boat you can have some fun along the way with tail squirts on little eddy lines :P

Re: Resourceful safety equipment......

I think that is a good idea that there should be a set of equipment that everyone in the group carrys on them/in their boat, and then there should be another set; drain bungs, first aid, clothes that should be distributed. Surely its a good idea, but it varies between rivers and the group your padd...

Re: Resourceful safety equipment......

Thanks all. I think that is a good idea that there should be a set of equipment that everyone in the group carrys on them/in their boat, and then there should be another set; drain bungs, first aid, clothes that should be distributed.

I think the idea of 'packing' every time is a good idea...

Re: Trimming down Palm Harness

I used the heated knife and found that worked fine. Mine had been cut by the previous owner who was bigger than me; meaning I have miles of the stuff, but I just tuck it away ;) The Palm BA's have about a foot if not more of extra harness webbing, and is important that it is cut down to the right s...

Resourceful safety equipment......

Hi again, All whitewater paddlers tend to carry all the usual safety gear such as; throwlines, knives, sligngs, krabs, sling tape etc, but how important is it that we carry things like duck tape (variable usability in wet) and wine corks (drain bungs)? I remember the time on the lower T that one of ...

I wouldnt tamper with a brand new LL Biscuit by drilling a flaming big hole in it. There must be a reason why the likes of LL, Jackson and most lately, Pyranha arent using drain bungs.

I think its worth noting that the wanderer is way more comfy than both the WRSI and SR standard helmets, mine fits like a glove and everyone who has tried it on agrees.

Hi there. I bought a M/L size legend one (08 spec i believe) which is 56cm and upwards. I have a 54/55 cm head so was unsure if it was going to be too loose.
