Trying out the Jitsu - River Tawe

Finally got to try out my new toy this weekend, the Dagger Jitsu.

The Jistu in action, with me sporting my new Palm Torrent suit and Amp PFD
The rain poured down on Friday and Saturday, so it was decided a blast down the river Tawe was in order to give the Jitsu a true South Wales kayaking baptism.

The Jitsu handled amazingly well down river. It made it easy to eddy hop with great acceleration and quick turning, great for finding the best surfing waves to play in, and when in the wave it was super stable and fantastic to throw about.

Rock slides, pool drops and awesome wave trains reminded me just how fun this river can be.
A really great day out had by all!
