Carbon Fibre Paddle WTB

Hi.

Does anyone have a Carbon fibre paddle that they want to sell? They're not cheap, thought I'll ask on the forum first.

Hope you guys aren’t freezing your arses off.
It’s another day in paradise in Samoa. Fishing isn’t flash but eating heaps of raw fish, tuna sashimi and drinking heaps of cocktails.

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

I like the idea of being able to pedal slowly to hold yourself on sign, and dropping jigs etc. Also being able to safely fish in close to cliff faces while casting softies. And my elbow is munted from too much table tennis... What are you waiting for?!? SUPshed in orewa agreed to sell a demo model ...

Re: Trailers

Hi - I am considering getting a trailer for my kayak, for a variety of reasons. Any recommendations? And are there any out there that can double as a general purpose trailer too, while also being able to tow a kayak? If there are - this would be easier to get sign off on from my wife.... Thanks.

Re: Upolu, Samoa. Recommended fishing charters

Will do. I've been told to go to American Samoa for primo fishing. If I can't find anywhere in Upolu I think i'll be downing cocktails and sunbathing. :y:

I have been there and tried it, the fishing was very poor and sorry I couldn't make a recommendation, so no help at all TBH :y:

Bugger! Thanks AW. I've been told to travel to Savai'i to go fishing but my missus said no. :doh:

Upolu, Samoa. Recommended fishing charters

Hi. Going to Upolu in Samoa for a good week of R&R. Does anyone recommend any good fishing charters in Upolu?

I'm not really keen for Marlin fishing. I prefer to try and catch Tuna, Mahimahi, GT, etc. Any recommendations? :y:

Re: For the love of fish

Man that looks delicious. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts. :y:

I've just finished my first smoking video a few days ago. I don't go fishing much nowadays but I've been making a few videos to keep me occupied.

Re: NEW KAYAK FISHING STORE IN NZ

There is already a Hobie retailer/agent in NZ - http://www.nzwatershed.co.nz/ The best place (most population) would be to base it in Auckland. Sorry Mental, I'm quite surprised by those answers of yours. Firstly, Rob's store, Kayak Adventures sounds much more like what MAXGARCIA has in mind than W...

Re: Speed bumps are fighting back

I hear ya. If my in-laws didn't live in Mangawhai I wouldn't bother going to that s#*thole. The town is a bore and the locals don't seem too bright. The restaurant service is piss poor. The local farmer's markets sell lots of hippy crap, and boating (or kayaking) in the Mangawhai estuary is dicing w...

Re: A cautionary tale

Probably want to keep the drift chute tucked up and stored away if you are riding the waves to the beach.

On one trip I didn't disconnect the chute from the running rig and stow it away. When I turtled the chute tangled around my lower leg and nearly dragged me out to the water.

Great idea! I like.

If we could somehow persuade Viking, Rob Fort and Mental to throw in one of their fine kayaks as a prize I'm in!

Hint, hint. Wink wink ;) :lol:

Re: Weather resources et al.

Good post! There are lots of websites I wasn't aware of.

I'm finding the predict wind app pretty useful. I think the Americas cup syndicates use this app.
