Re: Few chunes

Hehe, that defeats one of the points of the trip playlist altogether.

I'm sure if someone gets tired of the playlist that everyone went to the effort to put together, that person can easily put their headphones in and not get involved..

Re: Paddle Colour Coding System

At least now you can gauge which paddles are suitable for yourself, once you've tried various lengths and have a feel for it.

I'm 5'10" and my Werners are 194s. My next paddles will probably be 198-200s though. Once you're paddling a few years you'll know what works for you.

Re: Website & Forum Upgrade/Update

The webpage, all it really needs is a possible new WordPress theme and a bit more content. The back end of the website itself is fairly current and up to date for web technologies, and can be bleeding edge this summer if needed. It's only short on content and design at the moment, and the current de...
