Hi, We have been kayaking in northern arizona this summer and have really enjoyed the Star Paragon dual that we bought from you at christmas. But we always have trouble deflating it. I'm guessing we are doing something wrong with the valve, as we can only deflate if one of us pushes the stem down. Today we tried to pack up the kayak to move home and there's still too much air in it to get it back into the case, even when we fold it correctly. I can't find anything on line about the valve, other than what it is. Can you talk me through doing a complete deflate, or send me a link showing me how to handle the valve. It looks like the valve is a gray NRS Leafield C7 valve. Thanks, Pam

Hi, We purchased a Paragon Tandem from REI this spring (had to get inflatable, hope it works). Forgot to get the paddles before the stores closed. Can we order them now when your stores are closed? Since we are relative beginners, we want two pairs of Bending Branches paddles. We liked the specs on the Bounce XGrip, but there are no 240cm available, so would have to order the 230cm. The paragon Tandem is 36" wide. Will the Bounce XGrips work okay in such a wide kayak? The BB Whisper comes in a 240 cm length. Do we need to order the Whisper to get the additional length? Or do you have an alternate suggestion for that width kayak. Thank you so much.
