The only two Chinese Team finalists who failed to win a medal were in other manufacturers shells. MMmmm???? Many of these World Cup medal winning shells have already found new homes however we still have a few left. If you want to row a medal winning World Cup Shell give Ron a call on 0416 035 980.
Riverview College have recently put the EasyRider to the test. And here is their verdict.
“Having had the opportunity to test the Easyrider as a double and a pair oar boat, We found it to be very stable and extremely good to teach good technique in both sculling and sweep modes.
Extremely good to get learners to a level where they could progress to a racing double or pair oar boat and have all of the skill levels necessary to row the boats with the utmost confidence.
These boats are also very good for Masters and older rowers to use the boats for really good recreational rowing.
I would have no problem with recommending these boats for both Training and recreational uses”.
