The Waka Steeze is designed as a river running play boat that you can still take out in bigger water with the addition of extra volume by adding in a pod. Two kayaks in one.
Here is what Waka have to say about the Steeze:
The Steeze is a boat that has been created from our passion to deliver the kayak we as paddlers most want. Our desire is to have a boat that makes kayaking even more fun whilst not having to compromise on the features that a modern-day creek boat brings when that epic run comes in.
The Nevis is an over the head slab PFD with a number of features I have not seen before in a PFD.
The Nevis PFD is the culmination of research from UCLan, design by Barney Caulfield and testing worldwide by Bren Orton. At its core is the Delta Fit adjustment system. Two wings that wrap your ribs, reducing pressure on your abdomen, helping you to breathe and increasing mobility. Set-up to go in five fluid steps, with fewer buckles (including new load tested aircraft grade aluminium hardware). The Nevis has the world’s first Piggyback adjustable quick release chest harness, improving upon the latest research, so that releasing your harness doesn’t affect the fit of your PFD. The Nevis sets a new standard in fit and safety.
This lichen green Kokatat Hustle R PFD arrived last week at Unsponsored HQ. It was purchased here in the UK from North East Kayak and Paddles. It also arrived with a free gift. I choose the Peak UK rescue tape.
The Hustle R is Kokatat’s latest whitewater rescue vest.
The Hellbender is Verus Kayaks first full slice design, and a new addition to our 2020 lineup. This boat was born from a craving for cartwheels and a dream of a slicey boating revolution. Combining a modern hull and outfitting, with classical inspiration from the days of rodeo, this boat is your go-to fun machine. This is the perfect craft to squirt, splat and style up your local run!
Level Six have released a brand new throw line that uses 20m of static Dyneema rope that glows in the dark.
The 3/8” 20 M rope features an 11% stretch threshold and boasts a 1700KG breaking strength. The mesh panels allow quick draining and drying, and the gusseted zipped opening system is designed to make re-packing your throw bag quick and easy.
Last Spring we were running the South Yuba in California, when things went a little sideways. Luckily it didn’t go worse because I was able to rope Evan out before he had to swim some gnarly rapids. In this video I decided to breakdown a few steps I took to allow me to be able to successfully get Evan out, and hopefully they will help you whenever you need to help someone out!
