About Me
First of all an introduction…… My name is Dale Mears. I am a keen kayaker both freestyle and river running. I enjoy spending my time paddling with friends in various locations around the UK and further a field or spending time in some of the coolest locations around the world. I have been a member of the UK Wavesport team for 3 years now which allows me to paddle the boats I love and promote them on and off the water. I hold down a career as a D&T Teacher during the week, and by 3:10pm on a Friday I’m usually off on a boating adventure. Perks to the job include 13 weeks a year holidays where I try and paddle as much as possible. I am also a keen photography, and am trying to combining my love for paddling and photography.
Favorite Kayak(s)
Project 52, Mobius 57, Recon 83

My first Recon mission in the UK

After an evening at Nottingham’s Christmas market with the boys from Wavesport UK we made plans to head North in the morning up to the River Tees. Water levels we knew had dropped off in most of the UK, but we were armed with 3 brand new Wavesport Recon kayaks and the Wavesport van.

Trent Lock Wave – Nottingham UK’s Secret Gem

We have had a lot of rain recently in the UK, especially over the midlands area. Being based in Nottingham sometimes has its advantages. Most UK paddlers know that the River Thames has a range of weirs that at different levels can provide some great paddling. Well some of you may not know that so does the River Trent! The only problem is that it requires not only some consistent rain but some flash flooding!

Trent Lock is one of the myths of UK play boating, a wave that forms when the…
