I finally got my hands on one of the new Think Unos this spring. Because Wisconsin is sort of in the middle of nowhere relative to the commercial transport routes, it seemed like I was about the last person in the world to actually lay my eyes on the ski and I had to bear with the initial reports coming in from Australia, Washington, Rhode Island and elsewhere. Finally, I took delivery of the ski, unwrapped it, and. But, like any other true paddler, I donned my basic paddling attire, snuck past my wife, who's eyes were fixed on "Dancing with the Stars" and her bowl of ice cream, and made it out of the house unseen for the initial test paddle. It was dark, air and water temps were the same - about 38 F 4 C.
Special thanks to Mark Ceconi who has edited all my reviews. When I got home that afternoon and put in on the waters of the Sakonnet River, lo and behold, I discovered I could indeed paddle it in the ocean, with some caveats. What a difference a few months makes. Did my skills improve that much while paddling the V12? Or more to the point were my first impressions 30 minutes of paddling not initially accurate, or did I just need to put more time in the bucket? I have logged 30 hours in the Uno since August 10, in various conditions from flat to 2.

I have been paddling the UNO since 5th may so for soon full 4 weeks. Before this just been out for small test paddle at Allwace cup italy and also at eurochallenge race in spain. Ever since I heard the news about an surski from Think kayaks that was made for small paddlers as me, I have been curious about it. All that Think kayaks said about this new surfski and the dimensions about it made it very very interesting.
