Introduction from a rookie paddler

2 years 11 months ago #32483 by Gil
I found this forum while poking around on the web. Up to a few weeks ago I was simply a Sea Kayaker. I am an ACA L4 coach for kayak and canoes. After participating in the Everglades Challenge race earlier this year I realized I needed a fast boat. I purchased a Stellar S18R and it seems I am now hooked on fast kayaks! I am mentored by Greg Stamer who has helped me make the transition from Greenland paddle to wing paddle. I purchased a Z&J 60/40 paddle, mid wind and It’s OK but what I really like is the Onno paddle which is out fo business and of course, The Gara Odin small which is likely going to be my paddle of choice after trying multiple brands.
Looking forward to any tips or advice from the rest of the paddlers.

Best,

Gil
