Re: Boat of the Week - Blackfly Option

The Option is my go-to boat, as can be said for a lot of people. Super consistent and always dependable. What I love most about it is that it doesn't do anything weird, it's just stable, fun, and maneuverable. While I'm not going to get into the whole L'Edge vs. Option thing, I will say that in the ...

Re: upper yough

I didn't mean to imply that the UY isn't Class IV, I think it is. While someone has been saying that it is Class III, that guy also swam five times, so... I think from Gap to above Bastard is Class III+ Bastard to National is Class IV+ Tommys to F-Up is Class IV and below F-up is Class III+ again th...

Re: upper yough

What Jim said. There's plenty of good open boaters doing the upper yough, PAC, bob hale, mark zak, etc who can show you down when your ready. What's great about the uy is that while it's class iv, there are classic and class iii+ lines around most rapids. If you can lead down the savage and you can ...

Re: Recall of WSRI helmets: Trident and Moment

It's probably good to go but give the buckle a firm tug. If it pops open, that transcends warranty, you don't want to be wearing something that is going to fail.

WRSI finally replaced my helmet after a couple months of back and forth. Hopefully this one works out

Re: C-Boater Nominated for Canoe &Kayak "Boater of the Year"

Jordan is a great boater and an even better dude, come on guys what he has been doing in the OC1 and C1 world is huge. He crushed the records at the green race in both divisions, running the race in an Ion no less. I voted for him and hope he wins

Re: Recall of WSRI helmets: Trident and Moment

I had a Moment and had the buckle issue, mine came unclipped whilst having a particularly bad swim on the Lower Big Sandy, and has unclipped here and there a few other times. The fact that it was a full face kept it on my head, if it wasn't a full face the lid would have probably come off They're se...

Re: Very sorry to hear this news from yesterday at ALF

I'm sure more details will be forthcoming, for now I think the family should have their time. A bunch of us were there and I can say, having just watched someone die on the river, that I hope I never have to do that again. The rescue effort was heroic, and that goes for everyone involved. A few of t...
