Bye Bye Mamba, Hello Burn

Que the Burn. This summer I’m off to India for my first experience of multiday boating, so need something with a little more space for all my luxuries. Ive heard good things about the Burn and I enjoyed paddling one on Swallow falls the other week.

Mine arrived this morning, all wrapped up:

I’m now hoping for some rain this weekend……

    The pyranha are good boats, we’ve got one, but one of our sponsors are fluid kayaks. They also make fluid solo, and expidition solos. It’s got a hole in the back with a mini-me splashdeck with a lid on top. Check out my blog under catogory’s kayaking.
