Re: foot pegs - or no pegs?

No foot pegs for me, can't stand them. Ripped them out of my OC1's, raised the back of the saddle until it is at the small of my back and use some high sitting thigh straps with quick release cam buckles, as I do in my C1's. More comfortable for me, more control and more secure fit, too. only drawba...

Re: Boat for Grand Canyon

Good to hear that you had a great trip, PaddlePower. Friendly Big Water it is, at least for me, but then again, I am used to run the Ottawa in the Spring. Someone who's more used to low volume creeking might see this differently. Hermit is the only rapid so far where I got a 14fter just about comple...

Re: East Coast Scale?

My experience from when I was out west for 2 years is that there is not only a difference between East and West, but also on withing the same region. BC seems to rate the same difficulty between 1/2 and one grade lower than Washington. Also types of water seem to factor in. Up in Eastern Canada, whe...

Re: Boat for Grand Canyon

As far as I know your options for rentals are, as Cheeks mentioned, really only down to either the Whitesell Piranha (14ft-er) with a Perception plastic saddle and Jim Michaud's Outrage. As far as I know both the boat at Ceiba as well as the one at Moenkopi are Whitesell Piranha's. I paddled Jim Mic...

Ceemweaver and Riot Groove for sale

These two boats do not get the water time they deserve any more and I am thinking of selling them to a loving home :-)! Plus I need to make some space for a raft (can't fit the little one in a squirt boat ;-) )Both are, as most of you know, rare, the Ceemweaver is the one and only and the Riot Groov...

Re: Where and who?

Keez got it right. It is Vincent Dupont It is the Coaticook Gorge in the Eastern Townships in Quebec. Features in the infamous canadian paddling video H2 HO. The video of the descent is still on youtube. Vince runs it first in a C1 and then at the end of the video in a WOOZ. TGG! https://www.youtube...

Re: AB edge breakdown?

Forgot to mention, keep it in a dry bag if you can, and tape off the joints with one wrap duct take to keep silt and sand out once you use it.

Re: AB edge breakdown?

Werner makes also a 3-piece breakdown now. The Aquabound breakdown is a great paddle, I used one extensively while paddling in Mexico last winter. The only problem I have encountered with them is the fact that sometimes the blade does not want to fit together with the shaft easily. The problem is th...

Re: Ankle Blocks - Knee Pain - Fix?

Knee pain can be due to many things, look, next to ankleblocks and saddle height also at knee spead, lower leg angle, how close or how spread your feet are, knee twist and such things. I for one am in quite a bit of pain really quickly if my feet are up and I have to push against foot pegs, but can,...
