The Barrenlands region in Arctic Canada is an amazing place. Big skies over green tundra, Canadian shield granite ledges, 24-hour daylight, amazing wildlife, and blue rivers. We paddled the Hood River in Nunavut, Canada for 21 days over 250 miles from the source to the mouth at Arctic Sound. The Hood is a classic Barrenlands …

Skook with Mrs. Jed

Here’s a quick edits with Skook clips of Mrs. Jed on Skookumchuck. I love that wave and the Jed kills it out there! Side grinding the green wave and throwing pan ams are some of the best things on earth.


Why I still love the Burn III

I have paddled the 9R and it is hands down a fantastic boat, but even though the 9R is great, I still paddle my Burn III. I like the size of the Burn III, the edges, and how it paddles loaded with gear. I live in Idaho and I mostly paddle big water, and I …

Demshitz competes in the Payette River Games at Kelly’s Whitewater Park in Cascade Idaho: A follow-up to the post by Gerd Serrasolses.

Gerd wrote a nice summary of the event and a description of Kelly’s Whitewater Park in his post on June 25th, but I also wanted to share the Demshitz experience and competition results. Kelly’s is a phenomenal feature and the area and whitewater around cascade is outstanding!! Mr. Carbon Jed and Mrs. Jed kill it …

Creeking in The Smokies with the Nano

I flew out to North Carolina for the NOC Team Trials and after a weekend of rain, the creeks in the Smokies started to rise. Along for the ride with Demshitz, we hit the West Prong and Big Creek at nearly perfect flows. The West Prong is a fairly steep continuous class five run and …
