Kaituna Enduro Race

If I had to pick one river in the entire world that I though hosted the most number of kayak races per year ... it would have to be, without a doubt, the Kaituna River. We have mass starts, time trials, multi-sport, slalom, short boats, long boats, raft, swimming, and even inflatable races down this river ... so when Ben Robson came up with an idea for a totally new style of race to be held on the Kaituna, we were all interested in what he could have possibly thought…

Spring Fever

 

Every spring the immense area know as Quebec gives up its icy and snowy grasp on the land, flooding its many large volume rivers. This huge amount of water combined with Quebec's rugged geography produces some of the World's largest standing waves. With a some patients and a bit of luck this can be everything you've been looking for.

Stakeout ... isn't a new concept, paddlers have been on stakeouts since forever. Its basic concept is, to be in an area waiting for the correct…

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…

CURRENTS - Episode 8 - Thailand



This past August I joined, Louise Urwin, Josh Neilson and Toni George for an incredible adventure thorough Thailand. Our primary goal was to search out and paddle new & old whitewater runs and hidden waterfalls of this jungle paradise, while completely imersing ourselves in the rich culture. However, my trip had a secondary purpose.

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.

First Descents in Thailand

Tyler Fox First Descent of Haew Suwat Falls, Thailand - Photo Josh Neilson



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
