Last week end I've been for the second time this year in Slovenia.
I went back to Alpin Action store and with great surprise i received for free a new Warp paddle.
Seems that after some months TyWarp reconnaised that the break of my Warp 11 occurred some time ago could be also due by a fabrication defect.
Now they changed the fabrication process (it is no more built in 3 separate parts)
Anyway, i decided to pay for the difference and i got a Warp 10 (a better model) for few Euros.
Thank you very much to the Ty Warp guys, in these days it is not so usual to find honest and professional people.
You got a new supporter.
Last sunday, 20th may I loosed again my paddle.

Last time instead, after doing quite well all the difficult parts, i tilted on a normal passage and i did'nt managed to eskimo... there are lot of rocks on Guisanne...
So i had to swim and the paddle... gone!
