We got a bunch of rain in the northeast and a ton of stuff ran. I hung out at home in VT and paddled some great rivers and then went to NY when stuff in VT got low. I called some friends and told them that they need to come to NY to paddle and they did! We had great days on Inner City Wave and we all got to run a new river which provided a few of us to get beat down. That story will be told soon with a video.…
I've been paddling in WV for the past few weeks throughly enjoying Gauley season and the new Project X! Last weekend I decided to bring my tripod and camera gear to shoot some video for my upcoming movie Locals Only so I paddled the Diesel 80 for a little more luggage space. I took the opportunity to shoot some of the slots and moves on the Gauley with my gopro camera. Along the way I got a few cool shots of Bryan in the Project X too. Check out the… Continue
Rain, rain, and more rain brought the water level of the Ottawa River to the bring of spring flood. The ottawa river locals put themselves on Stakeout watch for the slowly approaching high water Bus Eater Wave. The level never quite got to prime but the 'almost' Bus level had to be surfed.
This was my first time surfing a sizeable wave in the new Project X and good times were certainly had. A small crowd gathered to…
Recently Z-Dam was running in Richmond, and my buddies and I were stoked to get out there and throw some tricks. We weren't expecting to be anything like these guys, but we figured that we would be better than we were last season.
We hadn't been playboating in over 6 months, and instead we spent the summer creeking. I guess it was time to pay the price, and our…
First things first, as much love as I have for day runs like Big Kimshew and backyard runs like the Little White Salmon, paddling a kayak down a beautiful river, sleeping next to it and doing the same the next morning - without having to run shuttle or even see a road - is pretty much the most amazing thing I’ve done with my clothes on.
I've left out most of the normal kayaking gear, but with this list of gear, I have safely and… Continue

Here is a little video I put together for the Aquabatics Film Festival, a fun little season ending get together. Yoho is my favorite river in the Canadian Rockies, Yoho is Cree for Amazing which is one of the best ways to describe the paddling in BC and Alberta. I had a great season from creeking in the Spring while filming for Kelsey Thompson's movie Locals Only all the way up to my trip… Continue
As the water is rising slowly on the Ottawa, I managed to get one last session in at the perfect level 'Push Button' rapid.
If you haven't had the chance to surf at Push Button you have missed out big time. It has two great features so you can manage to perform all the tricks possible. The images were taken when the water was at -2 on the River Level.
Why do I love the Spillimacheen River ? I short but sweet run in a deep canyon that runs late into the year even when nothing else around has water. I have paddled this run in early October when it was on the pushy high side and it has been run as late as the end of October. It often gets to cold to paddle before it gets too low. This past weekend there where a record number 20 boaters divided between three seperate groups on the water, which was really cool to see on a class 5 run. After… Continue
Before you even prepare to compete you have to justify to yourself why you are even competing in the first place. A lot of this thought process will help you determine how you will go about your training and mental preparation for competition.
For example, is it for fun? Or do you have the dogged determination to win it all? Do the two have to be separate?…
About the time that I finally figured out how to get past the third end in a cartwheel, the word on the river was that “cartwheels are out,
loops and ariels are in.” Wouldn’t you know once again I would be a move behind when it comes to playboating. But in my quest to figure out cartwheels I had fallen in love with the EZG—partly because I could do flat water cartwheels in it, but also because stability is high on my priority list when it comes… Continue
