I've been using VE paddles for around 3 years now and other competitors such as Werner, Select, Lettmann or AT seem inferior. I think VE have nailed the weight to surface area of the blades which allow you to transfer so much power into each stroke, making these paddles perfect for all disciplines of whitewater kayaking. I've never had any issues with durability either and would easily trust VE in any grade of whitewater. One of my favourite things about VE paddles is the fact that they are custom built to any feather, length or hand you could wish for(there's even a chart to tell you which size would be best for you depending on your height and discipline of paddling!) Also, there is an option to convert the paddles into either 2 or 4 way splits if need be. This is great if you're trying to space save for trips abroad or just as an emergency pair! Combinations of Carbon blades/shaft or Glass blades/shaft are available if you don't want to splash out on full carbon blades or want something a bit more durable.
Bones shirts are great to skate in because they're made really thin so your skin can breath while you skate on a hot day. The last thing you want to do is skate in 90 degree weather with a heavy shirt on.
I've never worn a warmer jacket in my life. On the mountain, this thing protects you and keeps you cozy in absolutely any weather. I usually just wear a t-shirt on underneath, so best for colder riding. It also has a wicked seasons pass holder on the left sleeve for easy convenience. Highly recommend Superdry when it comes to snow gear. The retro look and style is rad too.
The best babolat frame that I have used before. Offers great control and spin while still giving the pop that everyone expects from babolat. Balanced well also so hitting balls on the run seems just as easy as if you're standing still, a large sweet spot also helps.
These shoes are awesome because you can use them for bouldering, route climbing and lead climbing. So you can do different climbs and you don't need to switch shoes. I also really like how comfortable they are, especially when I do heel hooks!
My Ron Jon wet suit has lasted me years and years! They are a local shop that has exploded in the past decade due to their great quality and great costumer service. I recommend this brand over anything else.
