Re: Dry land rolling practice

The most important part of the roll is the last, the upper part. You can practise it very easily! Work on clean low braces meaning keep your head down. Go deeper and deeper with it until your head touches the water and you still can recover clean and easily. Work on it until it`s 100%. If you have t...

Re: Training For Paddling & Common Paddling Injuries

I do calistenics combined with "some kind of yoga". At first I did it to remove my muscular dysbalances from paddling and to get fit fast after a herniated disc - but now it means a lot of fun to me. Improved my paddling indirectly cause I´m much fitter now.

Re: Pumps

You think so ? A a real discussion with different views, with pro and contra about pumps vs no pumps - where do you find that on FB ? On GDI ? Haven`t seen it being discussed there. I like the "two faces" of the internet but also see also the differences. (generally speaking, without judgement) FB: ...

Re: [Video] Bilge pump installation in an open canoe

you´re absolutely right, the same in my Taureau. But a little bit of lean back solves the problem for me, I don`t know if it works as good with the L`Edge. Put the hole through the hull the best a little bit over the waterline of the an an average filled boat , forgot to mention that. If the boat is...

Re: [Video] Bilge pump installation in an open canoe

thanks for your vid. But i think you can put a pump with much less effort in your boat, just place it behind your seat and fix it with straps. To optimize the performance the hose through the hull (right word?) should have no elbow, the length of the hose should be as short as possible and the hole ...

Re: Pumps

I like to have it all: I paddle a cataract as dry as possible, in the next eddy I put on the pump. Much more confortable for me then climbing out if that is possible at all. If it is possible to hop out easily - then I hop out and empty the boat in the classic way, that`s faster anyway.

We had cold and rainy weather but on the other hand good water levels and much fun on the water. It was so much fun meeting all those nice people, I´m still stoked. With Chris "Ch...

Re: Boat of the Week - Robson Finkenmeister

I never got used to the positioning of the knees and missed my roll to often in it. On the other hand I had lots of fun with it and it never let me down. Clearly a love / hate relationship. And it is fast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOuvlx580zA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (60 ...
