What to expect when your expecting.....the Recon 83

Here is a link to some sweet shots of the new Recon.  If you are like me, while you are waiting to get a new boat, you want to look at as many videos and pictures as possible.  So I just shot a bunch of angles of the new boat before shredding down the Meadow.  Isn't she pretty....

The Folly of Reaching for Perfect

I have been out teaching a lot lately and sometimes ideas crop up for articles, I was sitting in an eddy recently and giving some feedback and it surprises me the pressure paddlers will put on themselves to strive for perfection. Honestly, I think it is pretty rare to achieve perfection... read more on …

Manns Creek: West Virginia's Class 5 Gem

It took me around a dozen runs down Manns creek before I actually felt like I wasn't lost in its labyrinth of steep chutes. By Manns Creek, I am referring to Glade Creek at the Gristmill in Babcock State Park, past the confluence with Manns Creek(Real Manns) and down to the New River at Cunard, WV.

 

Here is a Manns Creek headcam movie from around 4": …

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…

BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED



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 ). The first… Continue

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

Thailand - Doi Inthanon National Park & Huck

Like most paddlers out there, I deal with the struggle of finding that balance between going on lots of kayaking missions and not being flat broke. I've spent the last 2 months on the Ottawa River raft guiding and instructing kayaking, pretty much everyday so that I could save up…

Colorado Kayak Tour Video

This year marked the first in four that I haven't traveled to Colorado to compete on the pro tour. Instead I decided to stay in Canada, shoot for my upcoming movie Locals Only, and paddle some of the stuff in Western Canada that I've missed out on the past few years. There are a few things that are hard not to miss about Colorado but for the most part it's been a really memorable couple of months and I don't regret mixing it up in the least.


As I was reminiscing about the…

While driving from Ottawa towards the Saguenay area, we were lucky enough to catch some good water levels on a few of the classic runs found along the way. We actually left a full week earlier then we had planned so we could catch dropping water levels on one of my favorite rivers the…

This is my second spring season coming back to Quebec, specifically the Saguenay area, in search of Quebec's amazing whitewater. Last year we had great success in finding / exploring un-run rivers, with 4 first descents, and we had a bunch more on our list that we…

2010 Northwest Creeking Competition





This past weekend was the 2010 Northwest Creeking Competition on the East Fork of the Lewis in South-eastern Washington.





Typically, this event takes place on nearby Canyon Creek, Washington, but due to a massive logjam a couple of years ago, the race was moved to the more-friendly, EF Lewis River, about a half hour away. …
