Battle to be King or Queen - Road Tripping

It's that time of year when the UK paddlers make their way over the border for some sun, snow melt paddling and local culture (ahem beer).
The Nookie Team have been traversing the continent in search of sweet lines already this season.

Tom Wah has been putting the NEW Nookie Short Sleeve Ti Vest through its paces out in Slovenia.

Go Pro - King Of The Alps- 9/10/11 June 2017

The most exciting mass start marathon whitewater race is due to start this Saturday in Moos, Italy. Nookie Team Rider Bobby McKee (King Bob to his friends) will be there to defend his title, and local boy and Nookie Team Rider, Daniel Klotzner will be looking to regain his royal status once more.
With an incredible atmosphere, and great prizes this is an event not to miss.

NEW Ti Vest - Navy Yellow

What the team wears

The new Rush Jacket and 1.0mm neoprene Ti Vest have been a huge hit with the Nookie Team this season.

The UK made Rush Jacket is a fully spec'd jacket with an adjustable neo neck. Perfect balance for ice cold water and sunny skies.

The Ti Vest is a firm favourite due to its comfortable flexible nature and super quick drying properties.
