Re: Slalom in the midwest

I'm new to OC1 and white water in this area. I've rowed rafts and dorys on II/-III on trout water in Michigan, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, etc... Most of my local paddling is in the BWCA for injuries and/or casualties. I've got my boat somewhat setup and I'm looking to get it wet, bags should be here th...

Re: Slalom in the midwest

Is there somewhere to catch some surf action on superior this time of year? I'm up on the range.

Re: Newbie from the North Woods

I ended up ordering some 12"x12" 3" thick blocks from NRS, added a new throw rope to the order to make the minimium. Need to source some contact cement locally yet.

Re: Newbie from the North Woods

Worked on it for a few more hours tonight. On the bright side, I'm getting pretty good at getting in and out of it. I have it to the point it's reasonably comfortable in jeans and street shoes.

Re: Newbie from the North Woods

Octane 91 arrived Thursday. Any advice on fitting the bulk head? I started with working the knees, then took about an inch out of the back rest. My nuts are still about 3 inches from the front vertical of the saddle and I can't quite sit on the saddle yet. I feel like my knees could go in further bu...

Re: Newbie from the North Woods

Yeah I stumbled across the rapid riders in my search for information on the Octane. I'm interested but I'm not sure if they will waive the pool night requirement. It'd be about a 4 hour drive for me, one way.

Canoe tripping, IK, rafting both paddle and oar boats, mckenzie boats, K1, C1; not real deep into anything particular but a little bit of each. I have more trainin...
