Hi Dave, having paddled with John S twice this week he has pencilled in the hire of one of the Club's Pyranha Burn's, large size.  I just have collect from the store. Rob

Hi Cat.

You would be a 7.6 for a mamba and would fit a small or a med burn but would likely be better in a med.

The club has some med burn 2s you can try for size if you like.


Alternatively I would suggest chatting to the guys at  https://www.roho.co.uk. They’re excellent to deal with and frighteningly knowledgable about all things water!

I believe they do a discount for LCC members as well.

Hi Cat, yea that's no problem. I believe its the Machno for you to take as the other kit is being borrowed tomorrow.

Also if you could let John Speakman know when ever you collect/reserve kit. makes it a bit easier to keep track of things.
