First Impressions: The Mobius

Being July in the Northwest, we're a tad short on water and play, but we're still high on stoke (did I really just say that?)! My shoulder rehab has been a long process, but I'm officially back in my boat, and able to do the important things like boof, cartwheel, and wave wheel! YES!…

WWGP -Head To Head Race

Once the Gladiator event was finished the giant migration of athletes started. Our next stop would take us to the province of Quebec and the Rouge River to compete in a Head to Head boater cross event. We all arrived to bleak rainy weather and traces of snow still on the ground. The spring rains had…

Road Rules: Staying Healthy & Keeping it Cheap while Traveling

We’ve been spending (a lot of) time on the road lately, and it has been an adjustment to stay healthy and present without blowing our budget or dirtbagging it too severely. With a bit of planning and a little resolve, you can keep your travels relatively cheap and fairly healthy if you keep your on-the-road lifestyle flexible. Here’s a few tips & observations from our spring and summer travels that allow us to make the most of our time on the road in a positive way.…

West Branching with Team Z and a new sponsor

Living in Readsboro, VT has so many whitewater options.  My favorite is the WB of the Deerfield.  This section runs with snow melt and rain.  A big thunderstorm rolled in Wednesday night and dropped like 5 inches of rain in the area.  I checked the level first thing in the morning and it was running at a great medium level.  We put on and it was 2 feet.  My Recon 70 kills it on this run!  Check out the video of my Recon 70 in action!…

The Gladiator -WWGP

After my warm up day and first day in a kayak in over 6 months it was time to get the Whitewater Grand Prix going.

The water levels on the Ottawa River turned out to be perfect for one of the biggest surf waves being surfed today…GLADIATOR. The sun was shining and the energy level of the…

Video update

I put together a video of a day paddling at Hole Brothers in NY using my Wave Sport Mobius 49 and some squirt boating at Consumption Junction on the Deerfield River in MA.  I'm finally getting this squirt boating thing sorted out.  I wish I started this years ago because I live like 30 minutes  away from an amazing squirt spot.  

The Zoar Outdoor Demo Fest begins tomorrow so I'll be there in the Wave Sport booth and will be helping out with mini clinics.  There's still some…

Game On 2014

After a more than successful 2013 season, I finally put my paddle gear away for the long winter months, which I would spend out of my kayak and exploring the world of winter and snow.

It always seems to be around the middle of March when I start to see the mad push from kayakers on social media.…

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…

Stakeout !

Excited to be part of the Wave sport Team and loving my new Mobius.  I have had a chance to paddle some very big water this spring on the Ottawa River. First competition for me was The Ottawa XL where we were challenged with a big wave freestyle comp on Gladiator and the second day was a Boater Cross race through Coliseum . The levels were at 25 + and were not perfect Gladiator levels making it very difficult to catch and even harder to throw a trick. The wave behind Gladiator made for some…

Dare to Kayak, dare to live!- Graden 6th gr.

We kicked off our Dare to Kayak season at Mundo Hot Springs.  Thanks Wave Sport for supporting my program and helping so many kids experience kayaking for the first time. Many of these kids will participate this summer in Dare to Kayak on the Salmon River this summer.  Enjoy the video. The quality is not the best as our school has older computers, but you can still see all the fun the kids had. …

May Travels

May has been a pretty fun month for me.  I got to paddle a bunch so that was pretty sweet, I turned 34, found out I'm going to be an aunt, and my best friends had a beautiful baby girl!  It's been a good month!    

The month started off with working a few events. I went to the Saratoga Springs and Old Forge, NY Paddle Festivals. It was fun talking to people about the sport of kayaking and getting them into the right kayak that best suits their needs. There was a SUP race at…

Turning the Corner- Running home

The Salmon River runs to my home in Riggins, Idaho. 208.1 miles upstream is the launch ramp for the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Over the last twenty plus years of kayaking I’ve waxed and waned between running multi-day self-support kayak trips to park and play kayak surfing, but I am slipping back to my roots: wilderness river trips.  I’m happiest unplugged in the middle of the largest wilderness in the lower 48, Frank Church River of No Return…

Coosa River Whitewater Festival 2014

Big thanks to the Coosa Paddling Club for hosting the 29th Coosa River Whitewater Festival and to all the sponsors donating prizes and cash awards for the Pro Freestyle event.  I learned how to kayak on this river and competing this weekend brought back some fond memories.  The Festival is fun for spectators and paddlers.  There were lots of competitions open for all level athletes to enter in at Moccasin Gap rapid.  King of the Wave is one of the most popular events with Dan…

Spring has sprung

Here's what's been going on in the world of the Campbell's.  

We went to the New England Triple Crown a couple of weeks ago. The Triple Crown has usually been a successful event for me but not this year.  I'm not sure if it was lack of paddling or if I just wasn't into competing that day or if it was the swim in cold ass water.  Whatever it was, it was not a good day for me. I took a swim out of my wild water boat with my wing paddle, towards the end of the race. I wound up…

A Kayaker's Guide to Making Friends

Believe it or not, the topic of making friends will perplex even the most sociable of kayakers at some point in their paddling career. This is not because we are weird, many of us are in fact relatively normal. It’s because we rely on our paddling buddies in a very different way to how we rely on our boozy weekend buddies.…
