I'll be there

I'll be there for a least a few days of boating. Will have the new Esquif Zoom on hand, probably a Detonator, Nitro, and Blast, as well. Stop by the booth to say hello. Will also be camping at Battle Run. Feel free to use the Esquif booth as a C-friendly meeting place at the Fest. ...

Mike, just scrolled down and saw your post, do you want to fix the worn edges on your Nitro? I was on the Gatineau during the festival 2 weeks ago and all the Esquif boaters (as the Gatineau is in QC, there were tons of them) had fixed the worn edges of their boats ...

Congrats!

Hey, good job. I just completed my first OC1 roll last weekend. I have an Esquif Nitro, I'm finding it hard to initiate the roll. I actually completed the roll in an ocoee, a much lighter and more responsive OC1 with respect to rolling (or at least I found that) ...

OC1 ankle blocks

I'm fairly new to ww canoeing and am fine tuning the outfitting on my Esquif Nitro as I go. I recently installed ankle blocks, they are fairly high, 4", I'm 6'5" with a size 11 foot so I figured that I could grind them down if they weren't working for me. I used ...

Two things

I'd really like to try a Nitro and maybe (depending on who I bring with me) a Blast. I've been a little distracted recently and not really keeping up with this place, but I ...

RE: Nitro vs Detonator

Hi Camille Just wanted to make a quick comment - the one performance characteristic you won't get out of the Detonator or Nitro is edginess - that double chine structure has no grab. It's pretty unstable initially and then really stable on secondary, if that's what you were meaning. ...

opinions wanted

... Detonator is a great first boat if you want a nimble, quick turning boat. If you mainly paddle big water, I would probably go slightly bigger (the Nitro or Rival maybe?) but for tight and technical, the Detonator rocks. You won't be able to do everything in it, but it'll definitely help you learn ...
