Looking After Your Drysuit

It’s hit the time of year here in the UK that it is time to put the drysuit away and dig the shorts out. It’s been a long and wet winter/spring so the kit has taken a fair bit of abuse.

Looking After Your Drysuit

I’m currently the proud owner of a Palm Spark Surface Immersion suit. When I say proud I mean it. However you need to look after your gear if you want it to last as long as possible. Leaving good gear in a damp state in the back of the car or in the bottom of a gear bag is not going to help it survive.

The suit has been a superb choice and has served me well over the last year+. It’s now time to get it ready for storage.

Dagger’s New Kayak – Katana

Over the last few weeks Dagger have been teasing us with little clues about their new kayak design. The video of the new boat now known to be the Katana will be released tomorrow. From the images of the prototype it looks like it will be a cross-over kayak and will be similar in some respects to the Pyranha Fusion, Liquid Logic XP and Wavesport Ethos.

Outfitting – Examples (2001 ish)

I found this in the archives! I think an updated version is called for.

I have tried to gather together a number of good outfitting examples. They are intended to be a source of ideas or possible options that you may want to consider for your kayak. The best way to look at the information is as a pick & mix. Experiment and take the elements that work best for you and discard the rest.

Getting the outfitting of your boat correct may happen with the first go but more than likely will require both time and patience.
