Keen to get out somewhere on the peninsula Saturday. Perhaps Little Akaloa sea conditions permitting. Any takers?

How'd you get on Grant?

I'm contemplating a trip up Kaikoura way this week, weather looking good Weds - Fri. Thought I'd stay at the DOC site at Okiwi Bay and do a bit of wandering north of the peninsula. Give us a yell if you're free and keen, its always more fun with a bit of company.

Thanks Al, It'll be another epic adventure I'm sure. I sent you & Thomas a pm coz i thought you might like to join us, but didn't hear back. If we head a further 7.5 ks out from Open Bay Islands we'll hopefully come across the drop off from 35m to 100-160 The weather should suit such a paddle.

viking profish 400 is a good kayak to start, paddlerzone is a good place to look at, if you know what you want already there may be cheaper ways to get one, but you wont get something rubbish from there.

the rod i use 95% of the time is a shimano tekota 600 mounted on a backbone elite 200gr jig rod. cost a bit but its great to use. could save a few dollars by swapping the backbone down to a aqua tip or similar, h&f do combos with the tekota and maybe a 6' raider rod for $260 to $299. there are plenty of other options, just depends what your budget is.
