Re: Midges

Midges are a pest. If you let them be. As has been said already. Use Skin so soft dry oil spray. on bare skin only. keep away from neck and wrist seals as it'll wreck them. If you keep on the move they are less of a problem.

Re: Throwing a large Molan..?

Hi,
A friend of mine has just bought a L Molan. It's just too much boat to throw around if your not high in the weight range. That extra volume is proving hard for him. I wouldn't have one.

I have a friend who has one for sale. It has only been paddled 5 times and is in immaculate condition. I can put you in contact with him if you like. He has decided to go for a slalom boat hence the sale. PM me if interested.

Is this a sea based event or is it for all water users? Being held on the Clyde coast It's catering well for the sea paddling fraternity.

Re: Which helmet to go for?

How much do you value your head when you start pushing grades?

Get the Rocker. The fit is awesome. I won't bore you with faff about foam and stuff. Go to a shop try one on. Then work out how to buy it because it's so comfy.
