Here’s Patti with a big smile after a day of instructing on how to handle a kayak in surf at Tofino with Yves Aqin/www.Go Patti phoned me after their session to thank me for the paddle and tell me she loved her new VIPaddle Rock N’ Roller. She’ll be able to retire the previous paddle that I gave her several years ago; it’s pretty beat up and the dimensions have been reduces a little from re-working it to remove dents and dings. Her new Rock N’ Roller is a lot tougher with Purple Heart tips and ash reinforced.
