The New Project X:

I have been paddling a Wave Sport Project 45 since 2007, and never thought I would make the switch to any other boat; I love my Project 45!…Continue

I have had my Project X for a couple of weeks now and I had yet to get it out other than for some very mediocre surf in Charleston and some flatwater. I had paddled the proto last fall quite a bit but I could not wait to get this freshie out on the water.
I spent the past weekend out paddling, the first real…Continue

So it's this time of the year again....cold temps, not a whole lot of water, and a handful of small playspots. I've found the ultimate cure for the winter timer blues - the Project X! This new design has allowed me to look at the low-water Gauley in a whole new light, and I am stoked to get this new boat on the river any chance I can get!
Canyon Doors at 2100 cfs!…Continue

I’d never thought in a million years kayaking would take me where it has and now I’ve ended up in the wilderness of Africa on this amazingly magical island named interestingly enough, the Hairy Lemon. The White Nile has some sick playboating features for right on our doorstep. All we have to do is make a short paddle up the river and assume your place in line for surfs on either the Nile Special or Club Wave depending on the…Continue

After unfortunate cancelling trip to Mexico for kayaking and keeping the ticket for this year, our plan B was for some reason Colorado right away. Beautiful mountains, good lifestyle, friendly people and a lot of snow. I totally loved Colorado and its lifestyle anytime I was here kayaking so it was probably time to check what is going on here in winter. I know its unusual for a whitewater athlete to post pictures from ski&snb sessions but thats whats going on…Continue
This past weekend, the Northwest experienced the largest storm since three years ago.
The Hood River flooded at 13.5 feet, relative to a normal 6.0 this time of year. The White Salmon gauge was underwater, and reached levels of what we estimate to be 8 feet and above. The Washougal reached 22,000 cfs, compared to 3500 cfs normally. Did I mention we had a ton of water?
On Saturday, a group of us made it out to one of the gem's of the Gorge: The Little…Continue

The Chronicles of Gnarnia is here to save the day. Are you tired of how hardcore all of these webcast and paddling porn videos have become? Are you sick of superhero pirate music blaring every time someone drops over a waterfall? Not to mention all of that rap music. Every…

Just sharing a little teaser for some instructional film that I will be providing for the public soon, the X is not disappointing so far. Check out the huge flat water loop, no over thruster, beach ball or anything. It likes to pop! More coming…Continue

Now that winter is in full force I am sorting through all my photos from the past season and I am quickly getting very excited for the 2011 paddling season.
I will post some of the best images I captured throughout 2010 in the next few days, but for now I though I would share a few images…Continue

Here is a short edit of some paddling from Northern Sweden. This place has some epic whitewater and a ton of unexplored stuff. I will be spending some time in the 2011 season exploring more.

I am continuing to have rolling troubles.
For a while I was about 60 to 70 percent of the time effective and able to roll on the river. Last year grad school kicked my butt and I was unable to practice until late in the year and since then I haven't been able to roll.
At practice last night I almost had it going but was bring the head up and killing the momentum. Then I started thinking about my paddle and head movement and didn't keep my hip snap…Continue
The huge storms of December, 2010 gave me one big problem: how to dry gear? It just kept raining down low and snowing up high. I saw the biggest flows since I moved to CA in 2007. I got a streak of 7 straight days on the water. It was good.
This video shows a ride at the Gay Wave on the Confluence Run of the North Fork American River. The Confluence Run gets the flow of the North Fork and Middle Fork American, making it one of the bigger volume options in the Sierra. It was so…Continue

When most people talk about running Manns Creek in WV, they almost always refer to running Glade Creek to the confluence of Manns Creek and continuing down to the New River. This in itself is arguably the best all-around, most 'classic' West Virginia creek.
'Real Manns Creek' refers to Manns Creek proper, which starts near the horse stables in Babcock State Park and continues to the confluence of Glade Creek. On the map below, the differentiation between the two different…Continue
