The Great Outdoors are doing a deal with the club at the moment where we can purchase New Wavehoppers for the very small sum of €450 each. This is an unbelievable offer and the club will be purchasing some.
The idea behind this deal is that The Great Outdoors hope to get a league running around the country with a specific class for wavehoppers (Similar to the wavehopper challenge in England)
For those of ye who do not know what a wavehopper is here is some info:
They are a plastic Wildwater racing kayak aimed at people just getting into wildwater racing. These boats are very quick as can be seen by the fact they took 3 of the top 5 places in this years liffey descent. There are currently two of these in the club which people are more than welcome to try out.
Here is a link to the boats, and yes they are ugly but fast (similar characteristics to Micheal McSweeney except for the fast)http://www.greatoutdoors.ie/shopping_admin/product_details/product.cgi?product=CK001&cat=Kayaks%20And%20Equipment&sub=Kayaking--Competition%20Kayaks
If anyone is interested in purchasing one of these kayaks at this ridiculous price please private message me as soon as possible as we have to place our order soon.
A deposit of €100 is required if looking for one of these. They are not in stock at present but once ordered should be delivered within 3-4 weeks
