Pyranha US Tour 2017

From Pyranha:

Team Pyranha is back on the road! I (David Fusilli) will be rocking the West while D Eric Dill (Big D) and company will be holding it down on the East coast. I know this is a bit cocky, but right now we have the best boats in the business and NEW OUTFITTING! Softer/bigger hip pads and stout new thigh braces to go with it. The year of the Angry Fish is upon us! Thanks for all your love and support.

Getting Water Out Of My Paddle

It is possible to get water inside your paddle. This can happen when there is a break in the seal on one of joints and water finds its way in or if a blade has been damaged/punctured. There are a number of solutions for “getting water out of my paddle” ranging from the simple to the extreme.

Getting Water Out Of My Paddle

In most cases if water is a problem then it would have found its way into the paddle shaft. However some paddle blades have a hollow or foam core. If punctured a hole can be created that allows the blade to also take on water.

Black Rapid Sport Breathe Camera Strap – First Look

Since making a move to a new Nikon Camera five years ago I have been using Black Rapid camera straps. The strap of choice to date has been the RS Sport 2 camera strap. The strap is designed to be worn across the body and allows the camera to be carried to the side yet be easily brought up to the eye to take photos. The big advantage of such a system is that the shoulders take the weight of camera gear rather than the neck. I have found this to be a really critical factor when I have been taking photos at an all day event.

Black Rapid Sport Breathe Camera Strap - First Look

The RS Sport 2 has performed faultlessly over the last few years. The Sport strap has been recently updated with a new profile and new materials therefore we have just made the switch to the new Sport Breathe.
