Source to Sea - A Charity Paddle on the Exe

Mo-vember is a charity raising money for and the profile of men's health. Specifically prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is likely to affect 1 in 10 men so its pretty common.
The idea is you grow a moustache and get sponsored. Well obviously kayakings fun to so join them together.

Here is a little video of local man Charlie and friends as they paddle from pretty high on the River Barle on Exmoor (not the true source of the Exe but at the shop we coincided it was the sensible thing to do in regards to levels and time).

Disclaimer: We do not condone some of the activity and behaviour shown in this video, Boys will be boys.....
Bad language and other naughty behaviour.

The guys used Pyranha Fusion and Wavesport Ethos kayaks. These crossover boats were perfect for this job with the ever changing environment and conditions.  Try one for yourself with our free on site demos.
