I Like Big Boats and I Cannot Lie!

I like big boats and I cannot lie...Did you like that play on words? I thought it was cheeky and fun, but the truth is that I really have come to appreciate a large boat as a small paddler. This realization came totally by accident, though, as I screwed up my boat order for our trip to South America this winter. Note to self:…See More

Taming the Lizard Brain, Part II - "Owning It"

We spent the majority of our summer traveling, presenting and teaching through our Tributaries Tour, presented by Wave Sport Kayaks. It has been an absolute treat for us to get back out on the road and meet new communities of paddlers, present ideas, but more importantly listen to their ideas and adapt our practices. …See More

Playin' Hooky

I remember growing up when the weather was nice on a summer day, or my dad had just about enough of work, he would come home early and would tell my brother and I to pack up our fishing gear and go spend the afternoon with us fishing on Lake Erie. This was when I learned the term "playin' hooky." I would say he instilled in us a…See More

"I've been there. It's a tough road for sure and there is nothing worse then that feeling of limbo. I'm glad to hear your back at it Kim!"

GROWING PAINS - Wave Sport presents the Tributaries Tour

Good, original, ideas can be hard to come by. Getting them to actually work can be nothing short of a miracle... Or so we have come to find out. (Short attention span? Skip to the bottom to check out free clinics offered by Wave Sport Kayaks and H2o Dreams)Let me…See More

"Mickey, fantastic assessment and write up of your own there. I think I might have to amend the current post and add your two cents as well. Glad to hear you are enjoying the boat as much as we enjoyed making it!"

Mickey Barry commented on Chris Wing's blog post Lost and Found in the Möbius
"Nice little write up,I'm in my mobius 57 six months now. I came from a Project x56 and have paddled most of the current crop of boats. I've found outfitting and setup to be more critical than ever. So much so that I change it now depending…"

Lost and Found in the Möbius

Athletes tend to spend a lot of time honing in their skill as well as their "feel" when preparing to learn new moves for competition or even fun- so much so that when a company introduces a new boat, we can be a bit skeptical. It's like saying, "Why are you messing with my game, Coach?" This is a tougher sell to even the lay paddler…See More

Young Ripper Spotlight - West Nolen

I get to spend a lot of time working with younger paddlers coaching them on freestyle, creeking etc. It blows me away when I see really young paddlers out on the water getting after it. Kids are great at letting us know when they are scared or don't really want to do something, but once that fear subsides,…See More
