A few months ago I sent this picture below to Ocean Paddler Magazine to try my luck at winning a Valley Etain. I was quietly optimistic in the same way as I used to be back when I used to buy lottery tickets but as time passed I assumed someone else had won & I was keen to see their winning picture.
Then one day I got a message on my phone from Richard at Ocean Paddler saying that he had some good news for me, I was intrigued as I assumed the competition would have been drawn before then.
I returned the call with a text as it was in the evening & seemed rude to call him out of hours but he called straight back & gave me the good news.
I spent the rest of the evening grinning like an idiot :D
I just need to blag my Mum's car to get to the beach for a shakedown.
A big THANKS to Ocean Paddler Magazine & Valley Kayaks for making me such a happy bunny ;D
