Meghalaya 2016

It’s been an absolutely awesome season out here in Meghalaya. A few of us headed out in July, a month or two before the conventional season kicked off, to see what gems were hiding in the monsoon months. During the rainiest part of this year’s relatively weak monsoon we headed to the Jantia Hills, home …

The Pyranha 9R Large: My New Favourite Kayak

For years I have considered the Pyranha Everest the ultimate big water/multi-day whitewater kayak, however, over the last few months I have come to a sad realisation; it is time for me to retire my beloved Everest in favour of my new favourite whitewater kayak, the 9R Large. I initially decided to give Pyranha’s 9R Large …

British Universities Creek Race 2015

This March saw the third annual British Universities Creek Race take place in Glen Etive, Scotland. In the event’s short history the race has seen super low levels in it’s first year and beautiful medium levels last year. Fortunately the river gods have continued this theme of escalation and this year we were treated with …

First Impressions of the 9R

I’ve been back in the UK a few weeks now and have had the chance to get out in the 9R a few times. Long story short: it is my new favourite boat. After a day at CIWW I was sold on it as a great boat for messing around in on easy whitewater but …

Meghalaya 2014

This year’s season in Meghalaya has been absolutely ridiculous. For the past two years we’ve ended up paddling into steep gorges with crazy geography that for the most part have offered up awesome adventures, but often not that great whitewater. This year has delivered on the awesome adventures, but now we’re really starting to make …

Eastern India

This August, after a sweet month of boating in Kerala, we headed to Eastern India – Orissa, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand – on the look out for quality whitewater. Until now there have not been any whitewater paddling trips to this area (as far as we know…), so as you might expect we started off a …

Creeking in Kerala

Kerala has been on my to do list for quite a few years now and this year I finally made it over. As a destination is far surpassed my expectations (and they were already high), with an incredible mix of keen locals, an epic race which draws people from all over India and the world, …

Best day ever in Betws

A few months back I was driving in to work in the heavy rain. I was off to the Alps in less than a week and really didn’t care if I got fired or not, so rather than heading to work I bypassed Gloucester and added 3 more hours to my normal commute and headed …

I’ve just got back from an incredible time in the Alps. If you can’t be bothered reading about it scroll down for the video… It all started out in Italy, which was great fun. Lots of small slides and drops. I was joining Dom Burrow who had already been there for a while so within …
