Steve Cole took his Kole’Gear hydration system down-under to dominate the Men’s 50’s division of the Australian National Title with a win at the Gold Coast Cup.
April 2010, Cole steered the 9 man change race iron, using one and a half bladders during the race. The first he wore in a waistpack, and the second he had stowed in the ‘bento box’ zippered compartment of the canvas. A quick change of the drink tube from one bladder to the next left Steve able to focus on the race and ever changing conditions of the longest change race in Australia.
Steve paddled with Mooloolaba 50’s crew – who he’d steered to victory in the 40’s and 50’s division of the 2009 Molokai Hoe.
Kole’Gear pressurized hydration system is popular with Australian Outrigger Paddlers and available down-under from Andrew Wheatley and his wife Amanda at Paddleshop and their website www.paddleshop.com.au
