Last sunday, 20th may I loosed again my paddle.
I was on Guisanne, a classic class IV river in France.
It's a river i like very much and i never had problem on it.
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!
It's a Rough Stufff Kinetic
I posted some announce on various forums but hte probability to having back is quite low...
