Lower Lewis Falls Huck Session, WA

Lower Lewis falls is a sweet park and huck 40 footer I had been wanting to run all summer, but had not worked out until it dropped out. Luckily we had some early fall rain, bringing it back into a prime level for a day. Chris Stafford and Chris Morelli were easy to rally to …

The Stikine

After my first descent in 2010 the time had come to head back. We were lucky enough to enjoy 2 trips down the river. We did the classic 3 day trip followed by the more unconventional 1 day descent. The one day descent was the most incredible day of kayaking I have ever done. We …

Three Seasons in the UK

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE boating in the UK. It might get cold, and levels are never reliable, but when you have a good day out they’re always the best. Also, unlike most other countries we have boating all year round, so long as we get the rain. I’ve …

Eastern gems

it’s been a busy summer, working and teaching. Finally got some days off and time to write about our early trip to Gaspesie. Its a little known region for whitewater, especially because there are almost no active paddlers. Fortunately, I had the chance to meet Simon Roy, the best local to show you the goods, …

The Kynshi

In just over a week I’ll be flying out to India for a return trip to Meghalaya. In an attempt to pass the time I’ve put together a video of our first and second descents of the Kynshi river last year. In my mind the Kynshi holds the best whitewater alonside the most beautiful scenery …

Cispus River, Washington State

Late into the summer after most rivers in the PNW are out of water, one awesome run is just dropping into its prime. The Cispus is a great run that is inaccessible for a lot of the year due to high water and snow covering the pass to get there. It is located in a vast, sasquatch …

The 2013 World Championships

The much anticipated 2013 World championships took place in Nantahalla gorge, North Carolina this past week. The feature was created artificially and whilst being situated on a natural river the competition hole is created by a concrete “wave shaper”. This feature differs massively to that off the last worlds. Smaller, less powerful but far more …
