First post! I have learnt a bunch from stalking here and can't wait to meet a few of you in person.
Just about to take the plunge and order an alpacka fitted out for white water (white water deck, thigh straps) and keen to do as much basic training as I can during the next 6 months before heading to for a 20 month world trip. I have recently been doing eskimo rolling practice every couple of weeks with the Sydney Uni kayaking club and was wondering if anyone around Sydney would be keen to do some fortnightly rolling practice/ general packraft skills sessions?
I also planning to hit the beach every other week to get my balance and strength up in an environment I am familiar with. Finally, I have been doing alot of practice as bents basin (I cant post url's [spammy apparently] but look up packrafting bents basin) as it is close. If anyone is keen to join me for any of this or has any other great training spots in mind please post or send a PM.
All the best,
P.S. Unlike Chris who ran the first training session, I don't have amazing skills so will try and learn by trial and error, youtube instruction and constantly re-reading Roman's book.
