Three cheers for NRS!

Just before the holidays, Laura and I received some exciting news. NRS is contributing to our expedition to Taiwan!

In our home waters of northern California, 4/3 full sleeve wetsuits and drysuits are standard immersion attire even in the summer. One of the many appealing aspects of sea kayaking in Taiwan is the sub-tropical to tropical climate. Springtime in Taiwan is warm and humid, with air and water temperatures in the upper 70's to low 80's. When planning our trip, Laura and I quickly realized that our customary paddling attire for northern California just would not do! Our new paddling kit will include NRS brand HydroSkin 0.5, H2Core Silkweight, and Beda Board Shorts. H2Core Silkweight for UV protection on all those sunny spring days and HydroSkin for a bit warmth on cooler days.

Laura and I would like to express our gratitude to NRS. For more information on their product line, please visit: Stay tuned for a comprehensive gear review when we return!
