With spring right around the corner here in the southeast and rain in the forecast I thought I’d share a bit about outfitting your Dagger kayak. The great thing about Dagger’s outfitting is that it strikes a nice balance of being functional but still very easy to adjust and set up. To outfit my new boat in its entirety usually takes me between 10-20 minutes and then I have a boat that’s fully customized to me. We’ll take this in stages starting… Continue
As paddlers, we have a special connection to the rivers, lakes and streams where we all love to play. We anxiously await spring runoff and consistent winter storms to fill our favorite streams with the fresh water that allows us to do what we love--get outdoors and go for a paddle.
The freshwater that feeds our rivers also sustains our lives--we drink it, use it to irrigate fields and water gardens, use it to manufacture goods and… Continue

Last night The Great Outdoors put on a great show – They hosted the launch of The Dream Result Movie. I haven’t seen so many paddlers in the one place, so far away from water in quite a while (ps, WHERE the hell is all the water?). If you weren’t there you can see the trailer at the bottom of…
The Rider of the Year awards are the brainchild of Patrick Camblin. In his words "The goal of these annual awards is simply to showcase the incredible things that are done in our sport each year and highlight the people doing them. With your participation we have an international platform to…

Check out an awesome review of the latest film by Rush and Tyler, Dream Result, from Canoe & Kayak Magazine. Here's an excerpt:
If for some reason you’ve become jaded to high definition kayak movies since the fall of the Teton Gravity Research flicks, then I beg, no I plead, that you see Rush Sturges’ and Tyler Bradt’s Dream Result, already a winner of Germany’s Rosenheim Kayaking Film Festival.
The Iliopsoas is a hip flexor muscle group comprising of three muscles: The psoas minor, the psoas major and the iliacus. This group is one of the strongest of the hip flexor muscles and the psoas major runs from our lumbar spine across the hip joint to the upper inner

muscles, is that they actually need to be stretched to keep their
normal tone. Otherwise they shorten and tighten easily which can…
