About Me
I have been paddling steady since 1988. I paddle around kamloops BC Canada Adams Clearwater Shuswap and Thompson rivers.
I weigh 160 lbs and stand 5 11
Pros / The Good
This thing surfs anything! From small pourvers to big green waves . In the past week i have surfed all the big waves that i have never been able to catch with my playboat......especially the big steep waves that move around a lot. It is easy to change direction to stay on the wave while surfing and the nose never pearls.
