Re: WANTED - Kayak repair South Wales (Newport/Cardiff Area)

Theres a Cardiff Canoe Club oldie called bob that runs a plastics company in Caerphilly. I cant remember more than that but i know he still does repairs (exceptionally good ones!) very cheaply. Your best bet is to ask Cardiff Canoe Club for his info or upandunder (the outdoors shop in Cardiff) as he...

Re: BCU Rebranded - British Canoeing

I second that. Its been a long time since there was a body in the UK that represented non competitive paddlers, and concerned itself with its members. The bcu stats suggest that only 36% of paddlers who venture out more than 10 times a year are 'affiliated' ....and this would normally be through clu...

So whats the differ...

Re: Wanted Pyranha rx300s or revenge polo kayaks

Hi, i have 3 Pyranha RX300's for sale.

Only looking for £75 each or £200ish for the 3 as they all have splits in the rear of the cockpit which seems to be a weak point on these boats in general. (no hull damage) if your interested i have pics or your welcome to view in the birmingham.
