Well I feel like a jack ass..just run my paddle over ,I had a phone call while packing up near a Tree with long grass
and through the board on ,then drove over my paddle ,being brown I thought it was a stick ,it went crunch on the front wheel then crunch on the rear wheel ..after turning ...so two 265 bloody cracks on both sides...one near the handle the other near the blade ...I will fix it ...

after driving over it I looked down and realised my paddle was not near me and broke out in some filthy language ..

shall I wrap the carbon cloth right around it or just on the cracks ??

I've just had to have 3 coronas to settle down Dave ...

looks like I will have to wrap it around ..the cracks are not a lined ......

it will end up a stiffer paddle now ...so will look for another .

Lol, have a couple more it will look better the more you drink?? I painted a fence with a mate once after a few beers and he had to repaint the lot a week later! At the time we thought we had done a great job, until his wife came home that is!!!

Self present or from someone, most expensive present I ever got was a coffee machine so I can make my wife coffees

Hi MD,

So you went for the 9.2 Flow...... excellent choice!

Well played.

Hey Gambler - good to hear from you mate.
Yeah - went the Flow - it was at a price I couldn't say no to.
Was keen for the Creek but that'll have to wait.
Soo stoke with the Flow though - we've got a bit of swell pushing through at the mo' with some monsoonal low pressure so I'm kicking back now with a couple of frosties and will be out for the dawny tomorrow. Hope al's well in the Gambler's neck o' the woods!
Yeeew!!!
