The team took a trip from Ogmore by Sea, to Southerndown, testing out our new Tahe Marine Sea Kayaks.
Tom chose the Tahe Reval Midi PE, a plastic boat that tracks well but responds quickly making it good for surfing back to the beach after a long paddle.
Gareth went for the Tahe Reval Midi. This has a similar design but is a lot lighter, meaning you can get some real speed on the flat water.
A spot of rain brought the rivers up enough to get a quick blast down the local runs, and paddlers were out in force showing what they can do.
Sometimes it's easy to forget what we've got right on our doorstep.
