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.


Festive Huckin'

As we are sure you all know there has been plenty of white water action to be had over the Christmas period.

Jim has had loads of fun on the Dart and Erme in Devon while Ollie went up to the Lake District to see family. While he was there they went for a trip to launch themselves down some big drops.

Check this out! A super sweet 30 footer on the Coglihn Beck    He's only 18 you know!
