How To: The Cartwheel


I'm not going to lie...cartwheeling is hard. It's one of those moves that is hard to teach, hard to learn, and requires a lot of technique. It's one of those moves that you have to try and try and try until you get the "Feel" of throwing an end or two. Some people learn in flatwater first, where as others do better starting out in a hole. I, myself, learned in flatwater and it took me a little while before I could even double pump (initiate the bow and stern in flatwater). In other…

Locals Only Intro

Making the intro to Locals Only was one of the funner parts of putting this movie together. Rather than going with a cliche intro that involved mountain time lapse's, water droplets moving in slow motion and athletes sporting gang signs I wanted to do something a little different. Enter Bryan Kirk and his favourite little kayak.

Mixing up my paddling!

Recently I have been mixing my padding up a bit... Surf Kayaking in Pembrokeshire, Sea Kayaking on the Severn Estuary and (of course!) freestyle.


Despite the small surf (about 2 or 3ft all week) at Whitesands beach I still was able to get out on the water to throw some wave moves and work on some of the higher scoring tricks. I have been working hard on my Air Screws, Back Stabs and Helixs. Also did some longer paddles exploring caves and looking for seals!

Competitions and Training!

Rain is lashing the window... finally some water after this dry spell! Despite the low levels I have still been out on the water plenty of times over the last few weeks!


Last weekend was one of the Youth Freestyle events, held at Boulters Weir. With the Club Championship very looking very close we bought along lots of NACC paddlers to try and win the trophy again!


I had agreed with Jacko to run one of the morning coaching sessions, focusing on video analysis.…

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…

Colorado Winter Update

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…

Project X can do it all!

I don't think it's a secret that everyone on the Wave Sport team is really excited about the new Project X. It's super loose, releases off of the water with ease, loops huge and is surprisingly stable and smooth on end. For a boat that is only 5'11" long I was shocked at how well it cartwheeled, much easier than any other short boat I've paddled. Even though it has more volume than the Project 52 it's easier to initiate cartwheels because of the slicy side wall and more retentive because of…

Project X at Diagonal Ledges

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

Gauley River Slots and Project X 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
