My New Kayak: A Bliss-Stick Flip-Stick

I paddled one of these while I was in New Zealand in April 2004. Back then I didn’t like the boat too much. Only because I was starting out in kayaking and it would flip me too often with the higher class stuff I was running there. But now I am ready to give the Flip-Stick another go.

Here I am in my old Flip-Stick on the Granity Creek run of the Buller River in New Zealand.

The kayak is made by
Bliss-Stick which is based in New Zealand. Justin paddled one of their creek boats, the Huka on the Otaki river and he liked that boat very much as well.

Jennifer will be taking over my old kayak, the Pyranha and my hunt for a creek boat continues…
