This week’s Webisode from Matt Brook Coaching is the fourth in a series of tutorials, mostly centred around playboating, both in modern and oldschool kayaks.Continue reading
Shane gives a run down on how to outfit the new Liquidlogic Homeslice.
Have you ever thought about squashing the tail of a 9R? No, well that was the inspiration behind the Pyranha Kayaks Ripper.
Check out this walk through.
Old school is the new school for 2018. On the back of a number of slicey designs being brought onto the market Jackson Kayak have revealed the new Mix Master kayak.
One of my favourite moves.
The Stern Squirt is a classic move for those of you playing with low volume kayaks. In this video Shane Benedict explains the basic concepts for performing the Stern Squirt.
At last weekend’s National Student Rodeo I took a few minutes of video during the Old School competition.
The raw footage can be seen here.
id10t along with Operation Zulu were (for my money) two of the most influential videos of the late 90s. This was well before POV action cameras like GoPro had hit the market.
It is great that PeakUK have shared this online. The question is will Riot publish Operation Zulu on line?
For kayak instructors everywhere, here is an edit courtesy of Shane Benedict.
I think it was 1995 when Bob Beazley and I did a bunch of videos under the Coriolis Productions title. Unfortunately these tapes went through a fire but were salavaged. Sorry for the quality but if you have ever taught kayaking I think you will find this a little funny. The Clinic was a 45 minute video that I have now broken up into shorter bits. At this point Beaz and I had been teaching kayaking a long time and this was a culmination of all the crazy things we had seen to that point while teaching actual students… with a little embelishment.
Surfing from channel to channel until they passed even Channel No 5, these action heros take the viewer on a whirlwind tour of insane stunts and unbelievable masquerades. Action sequences include surfing Montreal’s massive Mavric wave, hair boating in California and the Southeast as well as an insane freewheel off a huge waterfall.
I managed to get hold of a Pyranha S6 200 a few weeks ago and manged to squeeze myself into it for a quick spin out on my local wave. I’m 6ft 1inch tall and managed to get in the boat with no hassle at all. The S6 comes in two flavours the 190 and 200 versions.
The outfitting will be familiar to anyone who has used any of the other boats in the recent Pyranha range. The quick and easy adjustment of the seat and thigh braces allow you to trim the S6 quickly and the now obligatory ratchet backrest make getting comfortable a breeze.
