There Will Be Kayaking Ahead

The weekend just gone I spent at an event called Pyranha Fest organised by the kayak moulding company Pyranha. The event involved mass paddlers (Kayaking people) and their boats (Kayakers refer to their kayaks as boats.) converging on the River Tyweryn in Wales. This grade 3 river was a fantastic kick start motivator for myself, although slightly late as its starting to get chilly, but has made me dream of the potential kayaking mayhem the future could hold for myself. For the event I found my wallet and purchased my first new paddle a Werner Desperado good quality blades that I used first time at the festival they definitely float and I've nearly lost them four times already but luckily I have good friends to pick them up. Also finalised a price on my own kayak this week one year old Fluid Detox M which I'm very eager to get out and use... Lets go!

Return to Uni

The first few weeks of uni have flown by and I think this year is going to be an interesting and tough one. Things I'm looking forward to though are... Expeditions, two of which are planned for us that we are assessed in different aspects of leadership and skills acquisition knowledge. The third is a group planned expedition with a wide scope as to what we can do. Look out for pictures and video of these expeditions once completed and my uni assignments are handed in for them.

Creative computer application, not the course you think you would find on an Adventure course. However this module will enable and guide me to creating my own live website to promote my work and will hopefully end up replacing this blog. Website should be fully complete and made live in January/February.

I'm also looking forward to the kayaking festival, Pyranha Fest next week end then the NSR in March, look out for photos/video.
