Andy Wicks Back in a boat...
Andy Wicks - Following my summer trip to Canada I was advised to take a bit of time off paddling to allow my hand to heal (I slipped on a rock inspecting a rapid on the Magpie and caused soft tissue damage to one of my fingers - no heroic story!). At the end of November I had the opportunity to join my old uni kayak club on a trip to North Wales and decided that this would be the ideal way to ease myself back into paddling.
Andy Wicks Sun Kosi 2010 - A journey through time
Andy Wicks - Days 1 and 2 - Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th October 2010. Flying with kayaks is always an interesting experience and this starts from the moment of arrival at the airport. We can really use public transport due to the kayaks so I drove. I dropped Jethro off at the terminal with our boats and all of our luggage before I set off to leave my car at a friends house in Ealing for the duration of our trip.

SUP HQ SUP-ccesfull SURF TRIP
SUP HQ - he week-end has come and gone, but the memory of a quick unplanned trip around the Boland coastline will last a while still. At short notice Dylan was asked by his sponsors for some decent photos of his SUP surf skills. As our local beach break had wind and a flat spell as usual, we had to hit the road. We needed un-crowded good waves and I knew just the spot for the current wind and tide conditions, a bit of a mission, but a sure thing.
