Avoided the whole commercial interest declaration thing nicely there eh mate?
thanks for reminding me Steve but I was not sure if everybody was as interested in my involvement with NLP as you are.
In my blog post (http://gnarlydognews.blogspot.com.au/20 ... arbon.html) I say: I have been appointed as Australian East Coast ambassador for Northern Lights paddles. I have a selection of Greenland and Aleut sectional paddles to try. Feel free to contact me at gnarlydognews(at)gmail.com for a demo paddle.
The extend of the "agreement" with NLP? I received several paddles to test as long as I am also happy to lend them to other interested kayakers too.
It is GnarlyDog News policy however to not accept any payment for any items submitted for review.
More details on how I came across NLP here: http://gnarlydognews.blogspot.com.au/20 ... mment-form
I also have one of Tom's paddles and it is indeed a beautiful paddle with plenty of strenght.
