hi anyone. just wondering if anybody could tell me the ideal paddler weight for a blitz special? and maybe the absolute maximum weight a person could paddle this boat coz I'm looking at buying one depending on some advice. I'm 85kg but have easily dropped my weight to 80kg in a few weeks. Also height is no factor i'm only a shorty at 5.7ft. Any info is much appreciated. thanks.
