I got a phone call this afternoon from Sam at Kent Canoes, the Peak Surfskin that I had ordered had turned up. I had planned to paddle at Yalding anyway so popped in to pick it up when I finished work.
Just to make sure I tried it on in the shop, super soft and stretchy breathable waterproof fabric stitched to Peak’s Freeride deck. As usual wit Peak Paddling gear it fitted perfectly, so I headed to Yalding.
On the water performance was great allowing free movement, my only criticism is the pull cords that you use to tighten the arms flap around and have to be tucked away, I think a piece of velcro would be a neat solution to this.
