It’s not often we hope for windy weather but today was one of those days when we had Tanja and Svein joining us to demo a Romany Surf and Pilgrim Expedition. And as luck would have it, it was windy …. and wet!
We are lucky to have a variety of locations that we use for our demo days as it is always best to try the boats out in a range of conditions, particularly wind. Today we were launching from Ganavan Sands, near Oban which is great as it offers a reasonably sheltered bay but very easy access to the open water and a pleasant paddle along the coast to put the boats through their paces. The large car park and toilet block that can be used for getting changed in just add to the benefits!
It is worth spending your time making sure a new sea kayak is right for you, so we are happy for you to demo a boat over a day or half-day if required.
(thank you to Tanja and Svein for letting me take so many photos of them demoing the boats!)
