We bought a Fenn 4 (used)and Tom used it for the first time last night on a moonlight paddle up a crystal clear spring run (Rainbow River, Dunnellon, FL). He did say it will take some getting used to, but liked it. He said he feels he could use it for touring with a little improvement in technique)as long as there was not a lot of manuvering necessary.
I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. We both think I'll need a small (JR) wing. But I'm game...
Its so much fun to try new things! We hope by the time we're ready to try our next race we'll both have wings and be somewhat proficient in using them.
