Because I think Taylor Cavin is one of the funnier people I know (and his description so well put), I am going to let his boof.com post introduce this blog...
"At 4pm on Saturday, June 16th an intrepid group of swash-buckling crusaders, loaded their safety gear, fishing tackle, and ukuleles into their kayaks and embarked upon an episode of "Myth Busters" to de-bunk the fables of the South Kings. What they found (at 800 cfs at Roger's Crossing) was a terrific, spectacularly…Continue

Last month, a group of really awesome people went to Japan to do some whitewater kayaking. After arriving in Tokyo and being picked up by our local guide and friend Yoshi, we took off for twelve days of boating . It was an amazing combination of both whitewater and an immersion into Japanese…

A bore tide is a phenomenon that happens only in a few places around the world. Here on the Turnagain Arm in Alaska is the largest bore tide in North America. I was lucky enough to catch the bore tide a day after the highest tidal exchange. The video was shot with an HD GoPro hero. Enjoy.

In mid May, I packed up my stuff, three pairs of skis, two pairs of ski boots, my kayaking gear, two kayaks, two mountain bikes, and my dog and drove west. Well, west and then north. 6500 miles in the following three weeks. But it was not all for naught -- along the way, I did a high water trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon for a friend's bachelor party and paddled in Montana, Idaho, Washington, and BC.…

The North Fork of the Payette hosted one of the sickest extreme races that the sport has ever seen this past weekend! After a qualifying event on the Lower 5 section of the river, the Giant Slalom Race got underway on Jacob's Ladder and Golfcourse, a 1/2 mile section of Class V that is absolutely unrelenting in its fury.
Paddlers took turns launching off of the Red Bull ramp, and remote control helicopters buzzed overhead with cameras on them. It was an incredible experience, and I…Continue

I can't think of a weekend this whole year where I didn't go on some sort of adventure, from back country skiing in the Northern Cascades to kayaking trips across the Pacific Northwest. I know it's a bit late, but here's a post from a few weekends ago.

I arrived to Norway 6 days ago.

I have jumped on his van and we are roadtripping all around norway, during this few days we have paddled over 9 rivers and competed in the norweigan cup at trøndelagsrunden where I took the first place with two…Continue
