GREAT SURF! - NEW MEGA IC ON THE WAVES



Chris Hobson (Irlanda Norte), continua a dar show com o novo IC da MEGA. Ao que parece, tem aprendido cada vez mais com Dessie McGlinchey!
É este o tal surfkayak que ainda está em concurso na MEGA. O nome mais original recebe um à borla!


Segundo palavras do próprio Malcolm,

"Location, Porth Towan, and Fistral
Paddlers ,Darren Bason, James Hawker, Chris Hobson.
conditions, 1-4' from messy to clean
Ok, So the 1st thing you say is that they are all members of "The Flying
Squad" so their comments are bound to be good. Nothing could be further
from the truth. Well, in fact, aside from being the Worlds top paddlers they are also
very good at assesing a boats characteristics and potential , and if
something is not right they will say so, afterall these guys want to
Win, so they are not going to settle for 2nd best when it comes to their
kit. Honest feedback is a definate requirement for "Flying Squad" members.


1st to try it out was Chris, Friday at Fistral in nothing much more than
1ft, but his immediate impression, Faster than he Trident, more
manoeverable, more comfortable, easier to do those big tail slashes,
Darren next in same conditions, very simple ,"When do I get mine"

Sat AM, James hops into it, "Think you got it right, Like the seating
posn, more like what i'm used to, Sunday AM, "Can I get one!"

Chris Hobson probably had more boat time in it than anyone over the
weekend, which is why most of the shots are of him, Mondays comment "Can
Dad change his order from Trident to New Boat?"

There will be a demo boat at Simon Hammonds contest next weekend, 14th
April and also at Mundaka the following weekend.
