2016/2017 Chasis & Suspension Completion

2015/2016 was based primarily around the front suspension and some other chasis aspects. 2017 was based around wrapping up the rear suspension and chasis, getting big tires, and fixing the sloppy work done on the front (note to self: Stick to Carl's Alignment here in Vancouver for quality work).

The Antix and my ACA Instructor Training

Per the encouragmenet of a friend, I ponied up the funds for a last minute entry into the ACA Instructor training. I'd been wanting to do it for some time, but was concerned some local politics might play a factor into things (I can't get to level X because someone's homie is level Y and the comparison blah blah blah), and then had monetary concerns. The timing wound up perfect though. I had the free time, I had the funds, and my local politics concerns had quelled. I decided to sign up and go for it.

2017 Antix Large review | Jackson Kayak

The short version goes like this:

At Eddy Paddle

The AT Eddy has been my primary paddle since I really got into paddling, and remains my primary paddle of choice. I picked my first one up with my first boat years ago. I got a heck of a deal on it from Next Adventure, and I have to say I was impressed by the quality of the paddle for the price. Fast forward some years and I have paddled many days of creeks, rivers and playboating on two sides of the country... and I feel I can safely report that the AT Eddy is a solid paddle!

Werner Sidekick Review

While traveling back east to visit family, I decided to go paddle some whitewater with my girlfriend. Unfortunately, we not only had to pay to demo kayaks, but if wanted a paddle worth a damn we had to pay to demo them. Rather than put money towards nothing, I instead put the money towards the purchase of a new paddle. Having wanted to try a playboat specific paddle for a while now, while also being in a 2016 Jackson Rockstar... I decided I would I pick up a Werner Sidekick.
