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…

Giving Some Thought To Kayaking Injuries

Just the other day I was reading a post by Andy Maser about his experience with a dislocated shoulder. I thought it was interesting, but didn't think too much about it. Afterall, how likely is it that I would dislocate my shoulder kayaking?




The more I think about it though, the more I realize just how often…

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

Endless River Adventures Blog on Project X - Confessions of a Closet Playboater



About the time that I finally figured out how to get past the third end in a cartwheel, the word on the river was that “cartwheels are out, loops and ariels are in.” Wouldn’t you know once again I would be a move behind when it comes to playboating. But in my quest to figure out cartwheels I had fallen in love with the EZG—partly because I could do flat water cartwheels in it, but also because stability is high on my priority list when it comes… Continue

How to repair a indented nose

Soon or later, everybody will hit the nose of the kayak in this way:



It's not a kayak fault, it's our fault. However this kind of damages, if the plastic is not broken, are really easy to fix. Now we'll learn to make the plastic malleable and reduce the indentation.

First of all you need to warm up the material either in the middle of the indentation and the edges. You need to be careful to do not melt the plastic, but just warm it up until you… Continue

Lake Creek pics

When I posted video called My Home I called Pine creek rapid my home run. It is true but its easy, accessable, convenience and fun run. In this blogpost I would love to introduce you some of my best home runs ever called Lake creek. It flows in valley next to the road no. 82 called Independence Pass. Most of the summer its really high and running bottom section would be pretty hard core. You can run upper section though and it includes some fun class IV-V…

Epicocity Project's expedition on Nat Geo next Monday!

Last year, EP teamed up with National Geographic Monster Fish guru Zeb Hogan and a pair of Brazilian scientists to explore a remote 400-mile-long river — the River of Doubt (now called the Rio Roosevelt) in southwestern Brazil. Our mission: catch the tuna-sized catfish and paddle the Class V whitewater Teddy Roosevelt first described during his exploration of this Amazon tributary in 1914. Like Roosevelt, we walked away with mixed success, but that's the nature of expeditions--especially in the… Continue

Gilman Gorge, CO video and pictures

Week before Teva games I got a phone call from the boss of Timberline tours in Colorado that they are looking for a safety kayaker for this summer. Chance of getting paid, being able to kayak every day doesnt come every day so I said “Yes, of course!”
