My Shad was launched on Lake Illawarra about six weeks ago. Lake Illawarra is a large lake that can become quite bumpy but I managed to launch on a day when the water was like glass. It was tippy when I first got in (bum first entry) but I find it quite stable when I am under way. I have had the Shad out a few times now and have tried it in small surf near where the lake enters the ocean - it tracks well and catches and rides waves very nicely. I think my next build will be the Short Shot - any thoughts?

Cheers, Denis

No crocs even-keeled - we are too far south. But we have plenty of wallabies and kangaroos and snakes - they all swim very well. Here is a YouTube clip of a swimming kanagaroo
