We got a really awesome email from a guy named Tim who is a Kayaker. Here is what he wrote about Darkfin gloves in short.
“ I was was excited to get a pair of Darkfin gloves in the mail this week and even more so to try them out at my biweekly winter whitewater kayak pool session today. I have to say, I\’m impressed with your gloves and everyone else that tried them out today was too.
we have hand rolls competitions to see who can do the most consecutive hand rolls in quick succession. Previously my best was 17, but I topped that today with 21 wearing your darkfin gloves. The difference was that I had more power on my handrolls and was able to perform them faster
A beginner kayaker with a weak handroll was nailing every single handroll wearing your gloves
I can wear darkfin gloves while I\’m using my paddle without any hindrance – in fact I had more grip than I have with my normal kayak specific gloves, and dexterity was never an issue. The fact that I can use a paddle and know that if I lose it I have the extra power of the darkfin gloves to give my handroll a boost if I need it – thats incredible.
Aside from the improvement in handrolls, I found a greater freedom to play around in my boat without a paddle. This is something that I work on anyways, but without the extra power of the darkfin gloves, you\’re limited in what you can do before you roll over.
This ability to work on skills without a paddle was a big selling point for another of the intermediate kayakers in the group – she was grinning from ear to ear the whole time she was wearing them, clearly impressed with the freedom to work on her edging skills without a paddle
Anyways, great product. It seems to sell itself once someone gets a chance to try them. ”
We thanked Tim and bribed him to send us his best shots Kayaking while wearing Darkfin Gloves and we would send him another pair free! Thanks again Tim, you just opened up a whole new market we didn’t even know we had!
