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…Continue

The next river on my ‘Hit List’ was the Sweden gem Stekkenjokk aka. Gausta. This is the one creek that is the must paddle for all creekers heading to Sweden. If you haven’t considered heading to Sweden to paddle….you should now consider!
The Gausta flows from the highlands…Continue

I love the backstab but I have a habit of neglecting this trick. I tend to land a trick backwards and will spin myself forward right away. When I do that I yell at myself to do a damn backstab you moron! It’s a bad habit that I’m breaking. It really is a sweet trick and when you do it right it’s such an awesome feeling.

Good times and some good lines.
Clips from this years roadtrip with BSI kayak club in Bergen, Norway. Headed north from Bergen to Valldal (The Strawberry Valley) - running some good rivers along the way.
The Recon 93 exceeded all my expectations. What a fantastic boat! And this was before I moved the seat back. Now I'm liking it even more.…Continue

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'…Continue

I use the acronym PASTA to teach peel outs and eddy turns. If you have ever caught yourself, I know I have, on the eddy line or fence, instead of zooming across it, PASTA might help. I first learned this from my ACA instructor, Nate Ostis. I think PASTA while paddling, and I review it with paddlers before asking them to working on peel outs and eddy turns on the river. We did some fun dry land training at Girls on the Gorge this year. Dry land instruction allows for students to absorb the…Continue

August has been an awesome month. Lot's of great paddling and hanging out with family and friends. I've spent most of the month on Lake Ontario and paddling at Hole Brothers.
I split my Labor Day weekend sailing with Jeff and paddling. I went to Beaver Fest to paddle Moshier Falls with a bunch of great friends and Team Z. It's such a fun run that only releases one day a year so it's a big deal and lot's of boaters show up. I was excited to see so many boaters paddling in…Continue

This past Labor Day Weekend I had the opportunity to compete at the Canada Cup / Pre- World's and the Canadian Team Trials event. The levels were perfect for Garb after much help from the Ontario Hydro and Quebec Hydro companies who held water back to ensure a great competition. After a fun and tight competition I have earned myself a spot once again on the Canadian Team in Junior Mens finishing third in the competition and second for the Canadian Team . This was a goal I had set out…Continue

The Northern Paddling Continues
After catching some playboating on the local feature the road trip was on! I had a few drops on my Sweden hit list that I had to check out. With a solid flow I headed on a short drive from Kittelfjall to catch the Skalmodal and a super scenic…Continue

Stennäs –The Hidden Wave
The whitewater goods of Northern Sweden once again provided some quality action. Only a select few paddlers in Scandinavia have heard about the elusive ‘hidden wave’ in the north and even more difficult is knowing when the wave is running and for how long it might stay.…Continue

Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Sometimes shoulder rehabilitation goes well, while other times it's completely and utterly depressing, and feels like you've fallen off the face of the Earth. Maybe not completely, but mostly……Continue
We spent the majority of our summer traveling, presenting and teaching through our Tributaries Tour, presented by Wave Sport Kayaks.

It’s no secret: I love my Diesel 60. Seriously, I’ve spent so much time in that boat, I feel like I think what I want it to do and it responds. It was the boat I learned to roll in and remains my go-to craft any time I’m hopping on something new, namely because I know how to move it better than anything else I paddle. When I found out I was going to be getting in a creek boat for the first time when we headed down to Chile, I was reluctant to hop in something that…Continue
