A throwline is a must have piece of equipment for all kayakers and canoeists. We have had a Nookie Hornet 18m Rescue Throwline 8mm (9kN) in for review at Unsponsored for quite a few months. We are pretty familiar with Nookie’s Throwlines having owned and used quite a few over the last 30+ years of paddling.
This is the third and final installment of our Tibet Trip during the summer of 2019. I tried to approach this video a little bit different than usual, let me know what you think! We go and chase the biggest rapid of our lifes on the Po Tsangpo, Eastern Tibet.
A whitewater boat for paddlers between 30 to 60kg, with characteristics similar to our successful Black Jack. The Queen is closing the gap in the market for a modern whitewater boat ideal for smaller and lighter people. The boat will be light, slender and the cockpit is low enough, so that kids and lighter people can sit and paddle ergonomically correct without the boat getting in the way. The mold is already being milled and we expect to deliver the first Queen of Hearts in February!
For 2020 we are proud to announce Peak Eco. All of our new whitewater and touring jackets are made from fabrics containing recycled plastic. We also no longer use plastic packaging and our milk comes in glass bottles!!
Things are crazy busy at the moment and Adrian’s laptop died with the Tibet 03 project file on it. Which means it’s going to be a minute or so before we manage to get him a new one and get that edit done. In the meantime we are in Oetz, having an absouloute blast on the Upper Wellerbruecke.
