Bryan Kirk commented on Bryan Kirk's blog post The Diesel 80 - Revisited
"All very good feedback guys. I too would love to see another version of the Diesel in the future, and when it happens - it will most likely make you all very pleased according to what you're looking for in the below posts."

"I think in time the Recon might establish itself as the best creeker made to date, but it's still a creeker and I'm still hoping for a tweaked Mk.3 Diesel in the autumn. Maybe, to quote Scotty, 'ye cannae change the laws of…"

"Yeah fair play, the Recon is very much a creek boat :-)"

Simon Wyndham commented on Bryan Kirk's blog post The Diesel 80 - Revisited
"I've tried the Recon, but it is very much a displacement hull. Felt very similar to my old Habitat, which I swapped out for the more sporty Diesel."

Natty Cordon commented on Bryan Kirk's blog post The Diesel 80 - Revisited
"Have you guys tried out the Recon? Sounds like it might be a great choice if you fancy something with softer rails, more volume in the stern and a sweet rocker then it's the way to go :-)"

Simon Wyndham commented on Bryan Kirk's blog post The Diesel 80 - Revisited
"I agree Alan. I love my Diesel, but I too think that it could do with a slight update/tweak. Like you say, soften off the rails at the fore and aft to help prevent them catching on boils, and add some volume at the rear to balance things out a bit…"

Alan W commented on Bryan Kirk's blog post The Diesel 80 - Revisited
"Mmmm, agree with this wholeheartedly and I've owned three Diesels and love that boat BUT as with many things in life it's strength is also it's weakness. That sharpness forcing you to stay on your toes and on your chines can quickly…"

The Diesel 80 - Revisited

If I were told that I could only have one kayak to take with me for a full year to paddle every river in Costa Rica, the choice would be too easy. A destination like Costa Rica - much like Fayetteville, WV - has literally every type of whitewater from ultra high volume powerful runs(Gauley/Reventazon) to medium-sized pushy creek runs(Pacuare/Meadow), to the tiny little micro-creeks like the Orosi(comparable to Wolf Creek, WV).Here's the 80 on a newly discovered micro creek in Beckley, Cranberry…See More

Dialing in the Mobius 6 days from Worlds (with video)

Ive been getting more and more comfortable in the Mobius 57 as we just slipped into the 'Team Training" phase from now until Worlds. The US Team has been training together for an hour slot for the past couple days and it's really brought us all together to support one another and exchange tips like a big family.

A couple weekends ago we had our US Nationals, which was a perfect way of getting back into the groove of competing again. My last comp was way back in June at Fibark…

The Mobius Freestyle Boat

It's exhilarating when a new boat design comes along every once in a while that totally rejuvenates your love for the sport of kayaking. Well, this has happened to me recently, and I am more fired up about freestyle kayaking now than I have been in quite some time - and that's really saying something! 

Clean blunt:…

Training for Freestyle Team Trials & Worlds

We are now less than 2 weeks away from the US Freestyle Team Trials. This means that there are quite a few freestyle boaters right now who are feeling anxious, excited, focused, and generally fired up to try out for the opportunity to represent the USA in the 2013 Worlds in September. 

Worlds and Team Trials are unique this year. They are both held on the Nantahala River in NC, which means Team USA will get quite the home field advantage at Worlds. Our trials should select the…

Bryan, I just sent you a friend request and did not explain. I am from Virginia ( 4 hr drive ) and just looking for some advice on the New. How can I drive in and out for Surprise Wave - park and play ? Is Upper railroad hole really fantastic at 4.5 ft - Fayatteville gauge?

Hey Brian, I just missed you at David's place in Pucon.... I got there the day you left. How are you feeling? I had a great 3 weeks traveling and paddling Chile!

Yeah, they said they'd get in touch with you by Thursday or Friday about setting up a WS-wide passcode that all teamsters could use to easily place prodeal orders. Guess they're a little behind schedule, or could have possibly spaced entirely. If I don't hear back from you or them iby Wednesday, I'll call and remind 'em. The water's cold out here!
