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.…

Warmups for Freestyle Paddling

Though these exercises are designed for freestyle paddlers in mind, these are exceptional ways to get warmed up in any boat.  This video tutuorial from H2o Dreams has that particular focus in mind.

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.…

Icy Ottawa River


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.

Two Creeks in a Day!

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…

Spring is here!

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…
