Kings River Celebrations, Part II- photos

Here are photos to complement Kings River Celebrations: part 1, which took place in early June on the North Fork of the Kings.  This stretch is a wilderness hike-in run above the reservoirs which de-water most of the river's length.  I pirated these photos from the Janney brothers who made up half of…See More

Kings River Celebrations: part 1

The natural flow kayaking season in California this year was comparatively short, but as always the goods are good if you can get them.  Of the local day runs, highlights for me included North Feather (Tobin section), the elusive Gay Wave on the Main American, South Yuba (Purdon's to Bridgeport), three runs on the Golden Gate section of the South American, two runs on South Silver Creek, and a run on the Silver Fork of the American.  A few rivers were in for good long windows, but some did not…See More

Taylor Cavin replied to Robin's discussion Mobius 65 Spraydeck
"I paddle the Mobius 65 and use a Bomber Gear bomb shelter skirt with a Large size deck.  I didn't feel any sloshing water or empty my boat at all during a 1 hour play session the first time I paddled my Mobius a few days ago.  I…"

"Hi, Keith.  Here are a few things you might try in transitioning from the Habitat 80 to the Recon 83.  These suggestions are based on my experience making the transition and the fact that the Recon has slightly…"

"Nice, Shane!  "Scrubby's Falls!"  Classic!  In Duluth, MN there are many micro-creek urban rapids named for their nearest landmark, including: The Zoo, The Food Co-op and The School!"

My first year as a parent/ kayaker + Aulin Cavin 2013 highlights

2013 was my first year as a parent. On 12/12/12 my special lady Keri gave birth to our son Aulin. Aulin was born in between the rainiest and snowiest storms of the winter, amidst great creative energy. His arrival time was fortuitous because we lived at 5,000 feet of elevation at the time and driving to meet the mid-wife mid-snow-storm would have been overly exiting.Aulin is named for Glen Aulin, a place on the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne. "Glen" means "valley" and "Aulin" means "beautiful."…See More

"Good to hear the damage wasn't so bad and recovery is going well.  That mushroom looks like a giant boulder we saw on the way to Dinkey Creek!"

Taylor Cavin replied to edward broekaart's discussion again between recon 83 or 93
"Hi Alan, Interestingly a nomad 8.5 is only 78 gallons.  The fact that the 8.5 has been considered a bench-mark all-around creek-boat for years shows that it is the distribution of the volume and the shape of the hull more so than a…"

Recon 83 or 93 ??? A Comparison

When WS first announced the Recon series, I was keen to see what design features were worked into the new boat, but immediately fired-up about the 93 gallon size.  I loved paddling the Habitat 80 all-around, and especially on creeks.  The main design update I was hoping for was a more lifted nose for gliding away from the base of pour-overs and punching through holes.  I figured an extra 13 gallons of volume would do the trick.  (For frame of reference, I weigh around 185 lbs... anyone will…See More

Devil's Postpile, San Joaquin: 30th birthday present from Mother Nature

I love the Devil's Postpile. Not everybody does. I know one paddler who completed the run this year and has no plans of ever returning. But when I daydream of paddling, often this is the place to which I teleport.The Devil's Postpile section of the San Joaquin has a personality split between thundering whitewater and the quiet reflection of mirror-calm pools. It makes me question why I put myself in inherently dangerous situations, yet readily answers that same question. It presents some of the…See More
