The Grays River lies in the Coastal Range on the Southwestern tip of Washington. It's a seldom run river, but after paddling it this weekend I wonder why. On Sunday Nate and Heather Herbeck and I met up with some Portland paddlers to explore the Grays. The class IV-V river had lots of fun drops, a couple tight and technical rapids, and amazing scenery the whole way down. At the end of the run I was glad to have paddled a new and exciting river, and now… Continue

I know that many on the team as well as thousands of other paddlers love the Green boat in all types of conditions and water levels. When I read this on BT I figured it would be a good one to share. Regardless of your size it seems everyone that paddles a Green boat loves it.

Running waterfalls is one of my favorite things in kayaking, even thought it only lasts for few seconds, it is one of the greatest feelings ever. That doesn’t mean you should go and run every single drop you find, running a waterfall takes big responsibility and compromise with yourself and with all the people you are paddling with.
If you’ve decided to start running big drops, I mean from 50 feet up, here are some moves that might help you to get that perfect line:
1. First of all… Continue

The Dagger Axiom is one of our newest whitewater boats and is a great boat to checkout for those interested in getting into whitewater, those who want to get back into whitewater, or those who plan to keep pushing their skills for more technical types of whitewater.
Sometimes with all the 100-foot jumps and world-class creeking it can be lost that whitewater is very accessible and Dagger's got the best lineup in the industry to get you up to speed and enjoying it.

As many know I suffered a huge set back in early June at the Teva Mountain games during the steep creek championships on Homestake. This stretch of river is my back yard run and a place I have run hundreds of times. For weeks leading up to the race we were lapping it several times a day getting ready and I felt unbelievably strong going into the race and the season. After finishing up last season with a win on the Ogden River, 2nd at Gore canyon and even a 7th place at this year’s Paddling Life… Continue

Last week I checked off a new Southeastern classic from my to-do list. I had been wanting to do the Toxaway for a while, but was waiting until the right day to do it. I'd say that a late October day with sunny, 70 degree weather during peak leaf season could not have met my requirements for a perfect day any better. The level was -4" (medium-low) and the team solid.
The Toxaway fullfilled every expectation I had for it and more. Slide after slide after sweet slide we moved our way… Continue

I just found some POV footage that I shot for National Geographic during our descent of the Congo River last summer. This is the biggest and most chaotic whitewater I've ever seen, and the POV footage definitely captures that more than any other angle we shot.
