I haven't been paddling that much this fall mostly because we haven't had much rain. What I have been doing is a lot of house work. We spend so much time traveling in the spring and summer that fall is a time where we get a lot of stuff done around the house.
I was able to run a new river the North Branch Piscataquog during the fall draw down. It's this cute little scenic class II/III run in NH. I paddled the Ethos nine which was the perfect boat for the 7 mile windy,…Continue

After you learn how to splitwheel you can work on the Tricky Whu, oh, that's a tough one!

After I got back from the WildWater World Championships in Slovenia it was time for me to transition from WildWater training to freestyle training. I went back and forth from home in VT to upstate NY training on the Black River. There was plenty of rain this summer so most of my training was done at high water Hole Brothers which was "fun", since it was a wave, but not really "ideal", since the World Championships was being held in a hole.
I left NY…Continue
