Editor: Over the last two years, I've lost about 12kg.  With the weight loss and comcommitent fitness increase, my performance has improved.  But I've noticed a slight increase in tippiness over the last year or two that I'd put down to my increasing age...  But is it also perhaps related to my weight?  Angus Gluskie has done some great work on this very issue...

A couple of weeks ago, here in Cape Town, a paddler found himself in trouble on the famous (notorious?) Miller’s Run downwind route.  Some 2km offshore, he fell off and after a number of attempts was unable to remount his surfski.  He activated his McMurdo FastFind 220 Personal Locator Beacon.  An hour and half later he was pulled from the water having swum his ski almost all the way to safety. A happy ending - but not because of the PLB.

[Editor:  Fred Schiess from Santa Barbara, CA, wrote to us about an innovative modification to the rudder pedals in his ski.] Thank you for allowing me to describe and illustrate to you what it is I've achieved and believe to be a great improvement for a more powerful stroke and better overall transfer of power to a surfski... {mosimage}
