Not The Only Prototype Pyranha 9R On The Water

Last weekend we spied the very obvious black preproduction prototype Pyranha 9R MKII on the water. However there was another 9R prototype on the water that was not quite as conspicuous.

In its classic Pyranha colours this prototype 9R doesn’t look too different to the current production model and didn’t get much attention. Given that I am a bit of a boat geek I knew it looked different from the current model.

New Palm Equipment PFD

When I first saw Paul’s photo (below) I initially thought that the PFD looked like a FX or FX R in a funky new colour. But there is clearly a different zip and an additional zipped side pocket.

Liquidlogic Braaap – Review

A lot of people are hyped about Liquid Logic Kayaks newest boat the Braaap 69. The Braaap is built off of a slalom and creek boat foundation, and is meant to give paddlers a new and improved way to run the river.
