Re: River Elf Storm Giant

This is for anyone who has or gets a Storm Giant C2. Snap Dragon does indeed make a skirt that fits the Storm Giant just great. However, when I called Snap Dragon about 6 weeks ago, they said that they no longer sell directly to customers. (At least that is what I was told.) You can get Snap Dragon ...

Re: River Elf Storm Giant

Review: River Elf Storm Giant C2 This boat is a dream to paddle! We just finished paddling 50 miles on the Owyee River (Oregon) in this boat. The river was running between 3800 – 4300 cfs during our trip. We had numerous class II rapids, a good number of class III, and two class IV rapids on the str...

Re: River Elf Storm Giant C-2

Mary and I will post a review - or at least our two cents worth - on the boat. However, that won't be until after we get it outfitted - likely sometime later in November as the boat arrives tomorrow (11/8/2018). Seeing as the weather in Wisconsin is now has hi temps anywhere from low 30s to low 40s,...

Re: Two Zealot C1s (slalom) for Sale

As you may know, the original cockpits on the Zealot were not made for anyone but 'skinny dudes and gals'. Thus, I cut out and significantly widened the portion of the cockpit where it hits the outside of your thighs. The back 2/3 of the cockpit are original, and the very front is original. Many yea...

Re: Suggestions for Slalom C1 and C2

Thanks for your response. More info helps. You say, "I'm not sure how many other manufacturers you have in the US ..." **> To the best of my knowledge there aren't any manufacturers in the US or Canada making slalom boats under the current specs. Millbrook boats (in New England) has some slalom mold...

Re: Suggestions for Slalom C1 and C2

Yes, we would be willing to sell the Whupatar. A couple of caveats:

1) We want to get a new (for us) C2 first and that won't happen immediately.

2) We live in Wisconsin.

Suggestions for Slalom C1 and C2

My wife and I are looking to buy new (for us) slalom C1s and a C2 for doing slalom races. We are still debating whether to buy new or used. Here is a little background: * We have raced slalom for 25 plus years, although we haven't raced too much lately. We used to race quite a bit, racing many times...

Paddle Recommendation?

I'm not looking for a paddle recommendation for myself. (FYI I've been using Mitchell paddles for years and really like them.) My wife and I paddle with a university club that has its own canoe and kayak gear. Currently the club has Mohawk canoe paddles that, at least in my opinion, are durable but ...

Re: Kelly-Rand's Storm Chaser

I also have a River Elf Storm Chaser - size L. I had the same problem - I would come loose when I tried to roll and wouldn't get a good hip snap since I couldn't stay tight in the boat. A bit of this was - I'm sure - due to operator error, but I couldn't stay tight enough to make a second attempt at...

Re: Slalom boat outfitting.

I'm way, way late in responding. I have a River Elf Storm Chaser C1. I just ordered a spray skirt from Snap Dragon, and it fits the boat fine and is not hard to get on. Two things here. Snap Dragon has a template for a skirt to specifically fit the Storm Chaser from River Elf. I don't know if you go...

Re: Choosing a boat?

Forgot to mention another (IMHO) advantage of a composite boat - weight. My boat was just under 22 lbs before outfitting with seats and thight straps. Even after that it isn't any more than about 25 lbs.
