Re: CForum Support - subscription?

I've been a 'supporting member' on other forums in the past. I'd suggest doing a 'members only' avatar designation and offer a t-shirt/tuque/towel/sticker/whatever every year with a $20~40 annual subscripton. Something tangible for the money along with the subcription. All members, suscribed or not ...

Re: Crucial tip for having a good roll

Yep, I've played with bolt-on 45degree toe block extensions and lap belts for the same reason. When it come right down to it I think I can accomplish the same thing by setting the factory toe blocks as tight as I can stand. I mean c'mon.. you're not peeling out into that gorge section or drop in the...

Re: Esquif airbags

I think the retailers can spec either vinyl or nylon Esquif bags. I got mine last March with the yellow nylon bags (very similar to Gaia in my opinion). I cut my decks almost immediatley (ie: opened up my bags to harm) and haven't had any issues. I'm not particularly carefull with them either and of...

You can find "surf" and "sailing" brand drysuits on online auction sites for a lot less than "kayak" brand drysuits. I OC1 so I don't need a double tunnel wrap. My drysuit says O'Neill and cost me about $150 That said, I would give-up my fancy paddle for an aluminum raft paddle (+$150), water helmet...

I use the gloves, yes they get sort of soggy but there have drain holes in the finger tips and the mesh back lets go of almost all water instantly. It's really important to get a pair that fit "like a glove" luckily they use a numbered size system so you find a pair that fit perfect and just keep or...

Yup.. THOR impact gloves.

(The Thor Quadrant elbow gards are also some of the best and at $25 a pair can't be beat)
