Davenport Paddle Surf Contest 2015

Alder Creek Kayak (0 min. ago) - This year Davenport Paddle Surf Contest was one for the record books!

Lee Royle (0 min. ago) - After finishing up on the Zanskar with plenty of time to spare, we started the long trek south to Kerala, the spice garden of India. To save some pennies we decided to take the 3 day train from Delhi, and assumed that getting the kayaks on as luggage would be potentially difficult but people have done it before.
