To purchase a carbon freestyle kayak. Alex has been training in a plastic kayak for 3 years entering national youth freestyle competitions, often coming in the top 3 for his age group. He will be entering selections in January 2016 for a place on the Junior GB freestyle kayaking Team to represent the UK in the European Championships in Germany in May 2016. Alex would really benefit from having a carbon kayak as these are much lighter and easier to perform the moves he needs to do in competition. We have managed to secure some funding but still need to find £1,600 to pay for the kayak and shipping costs, any help would be very much appreciated

After receiving my new boat I have been absolutely thrilled with the boost it has given my kayaking. After a few weeks of getting used to I was competing in the GB selection events. Overall I managed to get a reserve place on the GB Team. The fact the the boat is faster, lighter and, more rigid allows me to put more power into each trick I do. It has helped me get to the place I am now so I am very grateful to everyone that has donated to my campaign on podium partners. Thank you!
