One of the biggest appeals of going to Thailand, for myself, was the fact that not much was really known about paddling there.

And one of my big drives for this season was to get out into these “unknown” areas and do… Continue

Thailand's Mae Sa River

The Mae Sa River is a quality stretch of white water within 30 min’s of the city limits of Chiang Mai. The put in is located at the Queens Botanical Garden and is literally on the side of the road, so much so, that it is more reminiscent of a ditch then a river. However, the river quickly veers away from the road and starts it descent.… Continue

Beaver River NY

What a great weekend at the Beaver River in NY. The Beaver has three sections to it Taylorville (III/IV), Moshier (IV/V) and Eagle (V). Taylorville and Eagle have a few scheduled releases during the fall but Moshier has one release a year and it's the day before Labor Day. It's too bad it doesn't run more because it's such a fun run! It starts with two really fun waterfalls then some boogy water and then Moshier Falls. The falls is a longer rapid that has four drops. It's really easy to…
