Singapore Sling?
Thursday, March 02, 2006

OK, so it's a bit cheeky but I thought I'd try to take advantage of this blog network. I'm flying to New Zealand on Monday and I get to spend a whole day in Singapore on Tuesday 7th March. I do have a friend there but he's working most of the day, so I was thinking.... wouldn't it be nice to go paddling in Singapore!?

I know this is pretty late notice - aswell as plain pushy - but if anyone from Singapore would like to take me paddling next Tuesday then please get in touch!! I arrive at 7am and leave again at 9pm.

I'm going to New Zealand to attend the Coastbusters symposium in Aukland, and to do some filming for my next DVD. Yes, there will be 1 more in the 'This is the Sea' series! I'm lukcy enough to be paddling with Paul Caffyn for about a week and filming him for the video, aswell as a fantastic foursome of Greenland-style paddlers - Cheri Perri, Turner Wilson, Greg Stamer and Freya Hoffmeister. I also hope to meet up with Graham Charles, one of the Kiwis who paddled around South Georgia Island last year.

I'm bringing a few copies of Paul Caffyn's book "Obscured by Waves" back with me and am selling them on my website in the UK/ Europe Store. This book is not avaliable anywhere else in the UK or Europe. I'm not offering it for sale in the States because postage will be too much, but if anyone in North America would like one then email me, or reply to this post and providing you are happy to pay for the postage aswell as the book price then I'm sure either myself or Paul will send you one.

Happy Paddling!

The photo follows on from the one in the last blog and shows the aftermarth! The good news is that I got my 'North Face' hat back!

Justine, I'll take you kayaking if you head a little bit further south to Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. It's only an hour and twenty minutes flight away ... and I can assure you that the scenery (and not to mention the company *ahem*) is way much better than anything Singapore can ever hope to offer! :)

That's a very kind offer and if I was flying to Malaysia then I'd definately take you up on it!

Maybe next time!

FH2O told me you are coming to S'pore but I was just back from shanghai today. Absolutely cursed myself for missing what could probably be THE kayaking highlight for me this year.

Hope you swing by again soon, and we can go paddling ard.

Hi Justine,

I would love to obtain a copy of Paul Coffyn's book, if you like, contact me at

Greetings from Brooklyn, Marcus

hi Marcus,
At the moment I am just about to bring back 12 copies of paul's book to the UK, pretty much all of which have already been bought through my UK and Europe website. Unfortunately the books are heavy - 890grams so international postage is expensive. I'm talking to Paul about importing a few hundred into the States to Derrick from Kayak Wisconsin. We'll sell them through CackleTV and Derrick's website. I'll let you know when we have this arranged and have a price for the books which allows for all the shipping. If you can't wait that long then Paul can send you one from new Zealand but postage for 1 book is likely to be NZ$20. I'm in Aukland airport now about to begin the long journey back to the UK. I had a great trip, even if I missed out on a paddle in Singapore, next time..... more later.
