Joel’s Christmas Wish List
Joel loves nothing better than to get in a kayak and give it a blast! Perhaps Joel has met you whilst instructing, at Deep Cove Kayak, or you’ve seen videos of him giving the waves at Skookumchuck a good old rip! Either way, kayaking is his bag! Joel has put together a short list (all items under $65), that will delight any sea kayaking enthusiast!
Glassfloat Classic Chums $12.95
The Glassfloat Classic fits most frames and will float up to 45g (most sunglasses fall under this mark). Comfortable, durable and quick-drying the Glassfloat Classic does everything you want it to.
Joel ” Kayaking essential, especially if you have prescriptions. Losing glasses or shades whilst kayaking happens. This will save the day, and your glasses. ”
Seal Line 10L Dry Bag $29
Efficient packing and a no-H2O zone. The welded seams on Blocker Sacks add strength and durability. The rectangular shape saves space in a boat or pack. Roll-top closures seal securely for water or landlocked adventures.
Joel ” Keeping everything toasty warm is what I like to do when I kayak. This keeps my extra layers dry and so when I layer up, I stay toasty!”

Made from soft, breathable 200gm merino jersey, it folds really small but provides really big warmth that resists odour and bacteria so it won’t itch, even when you wear it everyday.
Joel “First thing I do as an instructor, if someone capsizes, is to get them back in the boat and throw a tuque right on their head! They warm you right up!”
Mamba Pogie – $65
This thick, 100% stretch 5mm neoprene mitt provides superior insulation and resists abrasion! This mitt also features: raw neoprene on the top surface to prevent evaporative cooling and a cuff snap for you to cuff the mitt up or down. One size fits most.
