The new event in Europe was interesting and it offered good races and very nice alpin style kayaking. All the rivers were quite high and the valley was very nice under the spring sun.
The first edition of the OutdoorMix, the multisport event in the Durance Valley (France), has shown its potential to grow this year. The organization has done a very nice job organizing all the races in time and respecting the expectations of all…Continue

Reno River Fest
I left good ole VT on Wednesday and landed in Reno Wednesday night. I didn't fly with a boat or paddle and this awesome guy Jonas Milton who doesn't know me let me borrow his Project X 48. Pete Delosa helped with getting me the boat and returning it. Stephen Wright and Ruth Gordon let me borrow paddles. A guy let me borrow his really nice slalom boat. NRS let me borrow a SUP and Pau Hana let me borrow a SUP paddle, oh and Pete Delosa let me borrow his wife Amy's…Continue

The Reno River Festival (RRF) this year was a blast. This year marked the 10th annual river festival. Going to Reno, NV to kayak always holds a special twist when it comes to the crowd who comes out to cheer on the paddlers. I was warming up before the freestyle event this year, when I began to hear a saxophone. I kept looking around for who was playing the music but it wasn’t until just before I went downstream to hole five that I saw a man along the shore, in the…Continue

I've been around whitewater for over ten years now and I'm lucky enough to have had amazing experiences due to the incredible paddles. I have met during my paddling career.Weather you're a class five boater with years of experience or a beginner kayaker who signed up for an intro class the river has this energy that can create a bond between anyone who has any sort of interest in whitewater. It's an extraordinary thing to be able to share my love and enthusiasm of white water with…Continue

There is nothing like watching it rain across the New River drainage and slowly the water builds up in the river until it finally dumps through the New River Gorge ending in the Dries. As I am writing this the New is coming through the 30,000 cfs range hopefully peaking at 50,000 tomorrow to create one of the most epic waves I have ever surfed!
The New is a unique big water run. Flowing North from North Carolina through Virginia finally ending in West Virginia when…Continue

In order for me to give you my full experience, I am actually going to insert three different blog posts that I wrote on TadDennis.com. These posts were written before the event, after the prelims, and after the final. Also, I have done many Slalom races but this is my first real Freestyle event. So I may compare many things to Slalom racing. I hope you enjoy!

I am thrilled to be a part of Team Wave Sport! I have had the privilege to meet many of the Team Wave Sport members at Freestyle Team Trials, and I have been very impressed with their kindness and how willing they have been to help me out with my first real freestyle event. They also supported each other at the event and acted as a real Team. Anyway, many of you are wondering who I am, so here you go.
If you want to know all about me, Tad Dennis, then I should start from…Continue
We've had a couple of good weeks on the road. It started off heading to North Conway, NH for the Mount Washington Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon. The Inferno is a 8.3 mile run, 5 mile kayak, 18 mile bike, 3 mile hike, and skiing down Tuckermans Ravine. That's what it usually is. This year it rained the night before and the river rose pretty high and the organizers decided to cancel the race on the river and make the kayak a flat water race. Another change this year was the…Continue

Day 2 of the Northwest Creeking Competition came as racers woke misty eyed from the nearby Macklemore dance-off. Breakfast was cooked for the Hood River Gorge-ians by The Kayak Shed (Special thanks to John Hart and the crew!), and we were off to an early…Continue

The Sea Otter Classic is to mountain biking what the Northwest Creeking Competition is to whitewater paddling. This event draws hundreds of paddlers and spectators alike as folks have the opportunity to compete in three downriver races in two days. It is also the second event of the Western Whitewater Championship Series, the NW's premiere whitewater racing series. This was my fifth year attending the event, and one that will always…Continue

This past weekend was the first down river race on the Lower Millers in MA. It's a class II section with a class III rapid called the Funnel which is a fun rapid that's a big wave train.
It was part of the NECKRA race series so a bunch of racers came to paddle. Jeff has been racing with me so it's been super fun, we are not competing against each other yet since he's paddling in the short boat class and I'm paddling in the long boat class but soon enough that will change. My…Continue

Hello from Russia, where the snow just began to melt and the river is still under ice. In order to open the season, we have to go south, to the Ukraine, where spring comes a little earlier, than we have.Continue
We are now less than 2 weeks away from the US Freestyle Team Trials. This means that there are quite a few freestyle boaters right now who are feeling anxious, excited, focused, and generally fired up to try out for the opportunity to represent the USA in the 2013 Worlds in September.
Worlds and Team Trials are unique this year. They are both held on the Nantahala River in NC, which means Team USA will get quite the home field advantage at Worlds. Our trials should select the…Continue
