This post has been rattling round my head for the last few months as I have debated on whether to put it out. A conversation with a couple of fellow paddlers has prompted me to make the post.
First things first the risk of being snagged or caught up in a strainer or similar is something that all paddlers need to think about and although the risk is minimal the risk still exists. Any kit that you wear has the potential of being snagged and all steps should be made to keep loops of tape, laces etc tucked away and out of danger. However I sometimes find that it is necessary or advantageous to have some pieces of kit on the outside of my PFD rather than in a pocket. Continue reading Things To Hang Off Your PFD

Video captured via GoPro Hero 3 and 3+ cameras. Tellico peaked at 6.8 feet and 3000cfs. V8 (Microgorge) was off the chain, Reconnect was darn right ugly with that tree, and The Icing was pretty awesome at the end. Level was good but wondered if more water would have produced less porting? Continue reading Wildcat Creek

The new Crush Watershoe from NRS are now available. This looks a pretty good piece of gear and will be worth checking out if you are in the market for a new pair of shoes and were considering a set of Astral Brewers for example.
We are looking at getting hold of a pair for review here at Unsponsored HQ.

The new GoPro Hero 4 was released on the 5th October 2014.
The new Hero 4 is available in two varieties the Black Edition and Silver Edition. The Hero 3+ Silver and Hero 3 White editions still form part of the range. A new lower spec Hero is also available.
The form factor of the Hero 4 remains the same as the 3 and 3+ with some slight alterations. This includes a change to the front LCD information screen that now houses the status and connection LEDs. The battery has also changed in both spec and shape! Continue reading GoPro Hero 4 Vs 3+ Vs 3 Comparison

Name: Tom Davies (http://tom-davi.es)
I first started paddling when I was 10, in Newport, South Wales.
I kind of fell out of love with the sport for a bit, until I went to University in 2012, and joined Manchester University Canoe Club. Since then, I’ve rapidly grown from a full time student into a full time kayaker. I try and get away to a river every weekend, and sometimes I succeed.
