Lonnie - An Inspirational Story

You almost always know the moment when you have met someone special. There is a sense of humility and ease that begs the question, "how did this person get this way?"

Lonnie will be one of those people I will recall, not only because of his sense of ease, but also his humor and…

Uganda 2012 Round 2!

Trent Lock Wave – Nottingham UK’s Secret Gem

We have had a lot of rain recently in the UK, especially over the midlands area. Being based in Nottingham sometimes has its advantages. Most UK paddlers know that the River Thames has a range of weirs that at different levels can provide some great paddling. Well some of you may not know that so does the River Trent! The only problem is that it requires not only some consistent rain but some flash flooding!

Trent Lock is one of the myths of UK play boating, a wave that forms when the…

and better. Last year, they had only 4

features and this year they added one new feature, a wave making it the fifth

feature in this already exciting park. That wave…
