The Kynshi – The Best River in the World?

When I booked my flights to Meghalaya 6 months ago the Kynshi seemed like a thing of legends. Tales of an amazing river with hard white water, which had previously handed out a few beat-downs to some pretty good paddlers, made me both excited and apprehensive for the trip.

9R L Review

This new white water kayak from Pyranha has just dominated the un-official Whitewater World Championships, Sickline! It truly is fast, it plains well but tracks like a dream, holding its line when driven. The 9R L carves across laterals like they’re not there.

The 9R: So much more than a race boat.

When the 9R was released this spring, extreme racers flocked to the design to go big, go fast, and win races. The second I saw it, I knew I needed it, and when I sat in my friend’s, I immediately felt at home in the boat. I borrowed it for a run down my local …

Pyranha Burn III L vs XL

Over the past few months, I have put a lot of seat time in the Burn III. I have paddled both the Large and the XL on a number of runs, from Class III to V. I have run rivers, creeked, surfed, and played in both sizes, and I have to say, they are two …
