Now I have sat on this article for some time as no matter what kayaks I list I know that there are a whole load more that would suit the bill. So here it goes, popping the the lid on this virtual can of kayak worms. Let us know your thoughts on the post’s comment section on the site.
Slicey kayaks are on the way back into vogue. After years of super short and relatively high volume playboats the “old school” makes a return.
Now old school is relative, for some of you out there it may be a blast all the way back to 2010! However for this journey back in time we are going back to the 1990s and early 2000s.
So lets say you were in the market for an old school slicey kayak to rip it up with the new crop of slicey kayaks currently being developed. Or you are silly bored with the bobby high volume short length playboats of late and just want something different. What could you go for?
I reckon cold hands are almost worse than cold feet. When my hands get cold they hurt and as they warm back up they really hurt. If the air and water temperature isn’t too bad then I’ll go through the pain barrier as once my hands are warm they’ll stay warm. However if it is super cold then its hard to push through the pain barrier as it takes so much longer. Cold hands will limit your ability to hold stuff. If you aren’t able to hold your paddle then you are pretty stuffed.
As a part of our celebration of the 23rd annual Green Race, and to raise money for the Green Race Conservation Project, Dagger Kayaks is “guessing” off this custom Dagger Green Boat tonight at The Salvage Station in Asheville, NC.
I stumbled across the brand Arcteryx a few years ago before they really hit the UK. I was after a lightweight insulated jacket that wasn’t filled with down so ended up with the Atom LT. I was so impressed with the fit of the Atom LT that I have since managed to create quite a collection of Arcteryx kit. The one thing that was missing was a hardshell. I had been trying to make a decision between an Alpha LT and Alpha SV for months. It didn’t help not having a store locally that actually stocked Arcteryx.
