New Paddler, Brisbane Region!

3 months 3 weeks ago #35167 by Crab Stick
Greetings folks!

Apart from some limited experience as a youth, I'm brand spanking new to
Paddling at the ripe age of 47!  I've just purchased a Surf Ski 2nd Hand - my budget was
meager - but I think for the money it will be sufficient for a start up.
The Ski is likely so old nobody has heard of it ... CHD (Cory Hutchings
Designs) Sonic Ocean Style - NZ  - Carbon Hull and Honeycomb Lid. I'm
currently getting roof racks and accessories together, have yet to buy a
Paddle --- these are more expensive than my Boat!

Looking to connect with other Paddlers in my area - or those willing to
help or share knowledge. If there are any locals happy to kick skegs and
have a chat, shoot me a line. Advice on best places to buy gear etc
would be appreciated also.

Best, CS;

Cheers Woody!

I'm on the South Side actually - Mt Gravatt area, but any heads up on local groups is useful as people generally tend to migrate about.
