Re: KS INUKSUK Greenland Paddle

No, paid almost $600, a big upgrade for me from a $50 BCF one. Consider it is 100% graphite and not made in China, I consider it of good value.

KS INUKSUK Greenland Paddle

8429.jpeg Finally took the newly purchased Greenland style paddle for a run. Less effort to achieve the same speed apparently. Much less wrist movement. The "shoulder" shaft gives more awareness on the paddling position. Very light and rigid. If I learnt to paddle again, I would definitely choose t...

Re: Helloo anyone still here?

not many people from Townsville post recently. Which bay and which jetty you are talking about. Now is the reef fish closure period although you can target other fish.

Re: Bit of a rescue needed - New Years Eve

Totally agree. I always take a roll of duct tape and some dry rags in a zip lock bag plus a "sea to summit" pump. Duct taping externally works surprising well for small cracks and holes. Being able to repair a damaged hull and pump out water manually is always in the back of my mind. Of course, prac...

Re: 2018

Yep, still got the Duo but son is too busy at the moment. Thank you for very helpful info about GP. I am seriously considering one for my wife because she does not need to unlearn Euro paddling. It serves well as a spare paddle because it should be easily fitted inside the hatch if it can come in as...

Re: 2018

I really enjoy watching it. Well done
It provides incentive to fix the rudder of my Dorado which was broken couple of months ago.

Also, what made you switch to a Greenland pole?

Re: Lucinda-Townsville 29/10-2/11

Not expert advice: 1. Lucinda Jetty (not the 6km one, I mean the one open for public): been there 2 times, no fish caught one time, the other time, grunter after grunter on Coles prawns (just about 50m from shore). 2. Tully River: upper reach (I mean below the hydro-power building) where a rafting o...

Re: Upcoming Paddle Sun 12/8

important idea. I got the big "sock"(remember?), to put on next time. A DIY kayak trailer stone guard is on the drawing board already.

Lockracks are still on the roof for flexibility at places where trailer is out of question.

Re: Tide (Current) directions between Pallarenda and Maggie

Well, you guys are getting serious in bringing in oceanography. :lek: I always thought the wind has much more effect on me.

Re: Upcoming Paddle Sun 12/8

what a great golden trevally. We just did a short paddle on that day, mainly to commission the trailer.

Re: Upcoming Paddle Sun 12/8

Just got my kayak trailer registered. Forcast is getting better. The issue is it is just getting too good. Now the Misus will be taking the opportunity for a short trip around Pallarenda/Virago in the Duo with me. Mostly likely will be launching (literally) at the ramp at around 7:00 am. Good luck w...

Re: Back again

Finally looked it up. It is torn shoulder rotator cuff which happened 5 years ago after flying over a bike's handle bar. Recovery has been slow by lack of blood flow around those tendons. I could not cast a rod for 3 months. It got much better afterwards that paddling is not affected at all. It stil...

Back again

After several months without kayaking, took Dorado out to Mag yesterday. Trolling a hard body for 2 hours for nothing. Then used plastics at Picnic reef, only bommie cods, good fun anyway. Then hooked the Halco to the rudder mechanism. Didn’t want to jump into the water to untangle it. Headed to sha...
