The Forbidden Fruit

Once upon a time in Minnesota, there was rumor of a creek that precariously meandered through the most arduous private property along Lake Superior's North Shore. That river is the Forbidden Fruit.…

A Grand Ethos

Admittedly, I wish it was me that was taking this trip again. But I was happy to see a handful of my friends get their first experiences with the epoch that is a Grand Canyon trip. Dave Hepp, the head of the US National Whitewater Center Paddlesports program, gave me a shout about a month ago asking if he could borrow my Ethos 10 for their 14 day trip.

I was happy to help him out, but once again I can't stress enough, I would have rather been going in this boat. My…

Park Rat - Summertime as the US National Whitewater Center

Rivers have dried up, releases are a bit more sparse and once again I'm basing myself out of Charlotte, NC for the summer. It's not a bad place to be, and with low water nationwide, I don't feel nearly as bad about not taking a trip this summer.

Launching a business and working full time on side projects and…

The Green River: The Forgotten Section

Getting things in order for the upcoming season media wise. Myself and partner Sam Fulbright headed out to our backyard run the Green River. The "miracle mile" which sports the big three rapids that everyone knows has had its share of filming over the years, so we felt compelled to film the section from Sunshine down.

There is a plethora of quality whitewater on this "forgotten section" and it was cool to get out and spend a full day paddling a river and filming. Here are a few of the…

Quick and Dirty Gear Bag - An H2o Dreams Quicktip

I learned this quick whitewater gear tip haphazardly when I did not want to deal with putting wet/dirty gear back in my gear bag that was still full of other gear that had not yet been wet and smelly that day. Turns out when you paddle multiple times in a day you collect a plethora of gear to help stay motivated. I find my motivation dwindles when the thought of climbing into humid, fetid gear becomes a reality, but I digress.

One of the easiest ways to keep things separate until you…

Finally!

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…

P56X First Impressions, and Sizing Considerations

At first glance this boat looks exactly like it acts on the water; fast, loose, maneuverable on waves. The one thing I wasn't expecting was how well it would perform for me in holes.…
