Hi from Tiverton

Post by Hangman3 »

Hi People,
Just found this forum so decided to join and say hello.
I am just making a return to kayaking after 15 years off. I am in my 50s and am looking for people who paddle locally for the safety in numbers. I used to belong to Exeter club and regularly paddled the Exe & Dart. How things have changed since I last paddled, everything is plastic now. Having bought myself a Dagger Axiom, I haven't had chance to try it out yet. Although 15 years & several heart attacks since I last paddled a Kayak I am keen to get back into it for the fitness & fun. So if there are any local paddlers that don't mind hanging with an old boy, then I would be keen to know.

Hi Tim.
As above. Exeter canoe club are still active and a friendly bunch. I joined last year after 20 years out and like you find ...the boats have changed .. in my view for the better.

Hello all
I know this thread goes back a while but I thought I would post something and say hello. I too live near Tiverton and have returned to kayaking after many years out. I'd be interested in a paddle on the Exe if anyone is up for it?
