New England Triple Crown and NOC Shootout

The Triple Crown was another great event. More paddlers showed up this year which made it a tough competition for all. Saturday starts off with a head to head downriver race.

Viva Mexico !

School's out! Finally, after 11 long semesters of studying excessively, I had all the time to realize this long-cherished wish of mine and go on a proper trip with my kayak. The plan: 5 months of travelling in North, Middle and South America - always in search of the most beautiful pieces of whitewater on the planet. After spending fall 2010 in the Southeast of the USA, playboating all over the place and successfully racing on Russel Fork and Green, the…

Thames Valley Freestylers 4th Birthday Rodeo @ Cardiff (UK)

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…

From West Coast to middle of Europe

 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.…

Mother nature changed her mind! Plus a Project X review

I thought spring was here but was wrong. It only lasted for 3 days and right back to winter! I decided to head south only to PA and NJ which isn't really that south but a little warmer than VT not by much though. The temps here have been in the 40's but we did have 2 days of 50 but windy. The paddling has been good one day at Holtwood and a couple days at Scudders. It's been tough getting back into boating shape but it's all starting to come back to me now.…
