Bazooka test paddle

Leave a comment

So I got my hands on a medium Bazooka, the new creek boat from Fluid kayaks. Decided to take it along to the lowveld and paddle the U3/U2 of the Sabie and huck the Elands drops (Dante’s). Will put together a short review of the boat in the next two weeks.

For Dante’s drop. The video shows the lines on a low side of medium level. Note that the set-up of safety below the second drop is super difficult. The water pushes you to the left, but there is an off chances that you can end up on the right. There is a huge cave behind the falls and paddling past the boils can be tricky. You will probably need a safety from the top on the right and then a boat in the water.
