This year saw the first Thames Valley Freestylers Birthday Rodeo taking place outside the Valley due to no water about at Hurley Weir. At first I was apprehensive about the decision to hold it at Cardiff but the weather man said sun and with a good crowd heading down I didn’t care less!
I arrived one of the first on the Saturday morning aropund 10am just as they were switching on the pumps for the course. All looked very concerning and first reactions were ouch this is going to be…Continue

After amazing winter in Colorado spent snowborading and working it was time to move on. We flew back to East coast where my parents in law live and soon after that it started to rain. How cool was that. We hit fun creek Wapwalopen and Jared Seiler finally completed descent with burly tight 30 foot drop at the bottom. He was scouting that one for years so I am really happy for him to style it the way he did.…Continue

It hasn't been the warmest here on the Ottawa but after being home for 3 days staring at the frozen river I simply had to go for a paddle.
After spending over an hour getting the truck stuck in the thigh deep snow of the take-out we finally suited up…Continue

With clocks "springing forward" giving us one more hour of daylight, I figured it the perfect time to get on two creeks in a day: Cooper Creek and Canyon Creek, Washington. Separated by a forty minute drive, these two creeks are quality.
Copper Creek is a small tributary to the East Fork of the Lewis, located in Washington state. The section typically paddled is very short, and features one Waterfall (2 ftr, 6 ftr, 15 ftr), followed by the Final Five Gorge, five drops in a…Continue

It was a crazy long winter here in VT. We had a ton of snow and really cold temps. I'm so happy to put the winter sporting gear away and bust out the kayaking gear. It took a few weeks in March to actually be able to get on the water. The ice shelves on the rivers were pretty bad. We now have been having mild temps like 40-50 degrees with some rain and the rivers are flowing ice free! I've only been out a few times since I've been working at a cross country ski shop. This week should be a…Continue
