Season 2013 Recap…

Hi friends,

2013 has come and gone. With the new year here, it is always fun to look back at the past 12 months and remember the good times on the river.

This past season was once again a great sone. It was less quantity, but more quality. The spring and summer saw me mostly in my backyard of BC. Just enjoying the classics and exploring some new stuff. BC, it just never disappoints.

In early fall, together with Kiwi Simon Rutherford and Frenchmen Jules Domine and Mathieu Coldebella, we headed to the Alsek way north in Canada’s Yukon. It was my second time down this gem. It truly is one of the most spectacular places I have experienced. Huge glaciers calving in the river, massive mountains, and very unpredictable weather. Again it turned into an eventful trip. During our time on the river, the river went to full flood stage. We watched flash-floods coming down tributaries, turning the river into a muddy monster. Turnback was out of the question (the french boys tried and paddled the first rapid, but quickly abandoned). The portage around the canyon was an absolute suffer fest. We Finally arrived at the ocean in Dry Bay after eight days and 180 miles of paddling through the spectacular St. Elias Mountains. Unforgettable.

After the Alsek, Simon and I flew into the Upper Nass, high up in the Sacred Headwaters, for four days of quality whitewater. Once again a fantastic trip in a pristine wilderness setting.

After Alaska, we headed to Nepal. This time I was lucky enough to travel and boat with Ric Moxon, Brian Fletcher, Steve Arns and Simon Rutherford. It was an excellent trip. Too much to report.

I finally got around putting together a simple website showcasing some of my photography. It is a work in progress. If you are interested, please check it out at:

A huge thanks goes to the Pyranha and Kokatat for their continued support. I love your gear and am super excited to mission in 2014 with the new Burn!

Happy new year everyone,
