Specs: Length: 274cm | Width: 65cm | Volume: 250lt Special thanks to all the amazing athletes who have had a hand in developing this awesome boat.

River Elf Storm Rider – Review

I’ve waited long enough to author this review to allow me a chance to use the River Elf, Storm Rider M for close to a dozen times under varied, low water/high water conditions. That, to avoid the manifestations of the typical instant euphoria reflecting in reviews of new, exiting toys.

Steve Backshall – Expedition

Last year Unsponsored noticed on social media that Steve Backshall was kayaking in Bhutan within Darren Clarkson-King and Sal Montgomery. Freestyle kayaker James Bebbington is one of the camera operators.

Darren (Daz) has been exploring the Himalayas for over 20 years and with Sal’s amazing track record we just know that the forthcoming TV show will feature an Epic Himalayan back drop, great rapids and is sure to appeal to kayaks and adventure lovers.

With a little digging we have found out that the expediton was for a first descent and is one of a ten part series, all worlds firsts.

The series starts 21 July 8pm on Dave TV – Steve Backshall, EXPEDITON.
