1st Descent Waihi Stream, NZ's sickest

Waihi Stream is a Kayaker's dream, a 1km stretch of whitewater that drops 100m's over smooth Papa (A soft, clay like rock found in abundance on NZ's east coast), with road acess put-in and take-out. Josh Neilson and Matt Danes had scouted this Jem a couple years back and have been waiting for a rain event big enough to over-flow the dam at the put-in.

I had arrived in New Zealand the day before and as always the boys were fired up to see another familar face back in…

First Descents in Thailand

One of the biggest appeals of going to Thailand, for myself, was the fact that not much was really known about paddling there. Several crews of paddlers have ventured here in the past, but there seemed to be so much more whitewater to discover. And one of my big drives for this season was to get out into these “unknown” areas and do… Continue

Thailand's Mae Sa River

The Mae Sa River is a quality stretch of white water within 30 min’s of the city limits of Chiang Mai. The put in is located at the Queens Botanical Garden and is literally on the side of the road, so much so, that it is more reminiscent of a ditch then a river. However, the river quickly veers away from the road and starts it descent.… Continue
