Just back from a 5 hour round trip to pick up a pre-production final prototype. It was a great drive, crystal blue skies and mountain views. Anyway here is the kayak, but what is it?
Jonas Grünewald and Nils Dippon went kayaking in California and hit the Upper Cherry. Big hikes in, big granite and tough whitewater. The ultimate stout whitewater destination.
Over the last few months we’ve had a fair bit of near gear at Unsponsored HQ lined up for testing. One of the hottest pieces of gear this summer has been the VE Explorer Aircore Pro Carbon Bladed paddles.
I had two sets of these paddles to test with different blade areas. These can be seen in the lower part of the image with a whitewater set at the top for comparison.
