I never get used to the feeling of the “what now?” syndrome I suffer from every year. Currently sitting at Lake Chatuge in Georgia with my good friend and training partner Brad McMillan, we are both jittery and restless trying to figure out what to do with ourselves.

Every year it is tradition for Hood River locals to get together for a
Halloween paddle down the Green Truss section of the White Salmon River,
WA. This year there were over 15 paddlers, dressed in everything from bam bam and pebbles to angels, clowns, democrats, nurses and frankenstein.
Myself and Jesse… Continue

This fall has been a very interesting one for water levels on the Ottawa River. In the last 6 weeks we have seen everything from -3 to the high water flow of 15. It has allowed us motivated paddlers time on every feature the Ottawa has to offer and it has also offered us the opportunity to utilize some of our fuelled friends such as the JET SKI.
Oh yes...we had some epic days on the Ottawa using… Continue

This past year has been a very good one for myself. I've been able to paddle pretty much full tilt the entire year in a wide variety of locations, BC, Quebec, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, USA and the giant waves of the Ottawa & Saint Lawrence Rivers.
Throughout the year I've been working with Five 2 Nine productions on a web based TV documentary called "CURRENTS" (to watch episodes of currents visit: www.five2nine.ca

I figured since they turned the river off today, I would become a functioning member of society and actually get to some of my much needed website updates. I recently had my friend Trent Thibodeaux design a new logo for my business, which is sick by the way, and I would accompany it with a…

Just the other day I was reading a post by Andy Maser about his experience with a dislocated shoulder
. I thought it was interesting, but didn't think too much about it. Afterall, how likely is it that I would dislocate my shoulder kayaking?
The more I think about it though, the more I realize just how often… Continue

So if you haven't heard already the Project X is where it's at. This boat is the best playboat I've ever paddled, hands down! Lately I've been paddling a lot with Bryan Kirk on the Upper Gauley and hitting up all of the little holes along the way. Wanting to get the X out on a wave lead us to Diagonal Ledges on the Lower, we liked! Here's a little video I put together of Bryan getting his groove on at Diagonal Ledges,… Continue

We got more rain just as promised! A bunch of us planned on going to the Moose Fest but then we bailed when the rivers around my house in VT came up. A bunch of friends came over including my brother Mark. We paddled the West Branch of the Deerfield River at 3ft on Saturday. We had a great time paddling my home creek. While we were boating Jeff took a ride to the hardware store and picked up some insulation so when we got back everyone was put to work putting up… Continue

Awhile ago, I worked with the fabulous Chris Wing at a sick play spot called “Eternity Hole”. It was great to be able to start working on playboating again and all the fun tricks you can do. During this play session Continue
we worked on loops, eternity hole being one of the friendliest and fun spots to
work on this specific trick. So after working on “plugging” for a bit and how
to make sure your boat doesn’t go off to one side or the other and that it

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… Continue

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… Continue
