Jonas Le Morvan / Nicolas Caussanel 2017 Showreel [English]

2017 is over now, so after some New Year celebrations, it’s time to have a look back on what has been my best year of kayaking so far! This season was the richest I’ve had in terms of travelling, starting the year on the Kaituna in New-Zealand and ending it in Tasmania on some insane …

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”; whilst this is often merely a clichéd, pretentious antimetabole that is used to ill-effect to motivate people of larger and softer proportions to stay on the treadmill for a few minutes longer, it is also what I wrote down in my journal during my last trip, …

NSR and Galway Fest

This year, for the first time since I can remember, the National Student Rodeo and Galway Fest were organised to be on different weekends, which meant I had no excuse to not attend both! Galway Fest’s reputation precedes itself, with a rumour of one year someone, *cough* Bren Orton *cough*, getting so wasted they drank a …

Racing Round the Indian Sub-Continent

I have recently returned home after spending 6 months travelling the Indian sub-continent; the trip was one of the best I’ve been on and was full of awesome rivers, people, food, and cultural experiences. One of the highlights was competing in three events – the Malabar River Festival, MeghaKayakFest, and the Himalayan Whitewater Challenge. All …

Cherry Creek Summers

Four years ago, I had a goal of running Cherry Creek. If someone would have told me that for the next few Summers I would be living out of a trailer, running this section almost every day, and even becoming its first female photo kayaker, I would have responded by saying, “a girl can sure …

Dominican Republic – Part IV: Staircase Section of the Rio Jimenoa
