Decided to mix it up a bit and go somewhere none of us had been in a while. If you haven’t gone out on a whim lately, I totally recommend it. Continue reading Let Me Tell Ya Bro About The Tellico
A little recap from this weekends Greenings with two of my favorite boats the LiquidLogic Stinger and LiquidLogic Flying Squirrel. Was also lucky enough to get my personal first longboat decent of Gorilla. Continue reading Fly Like A Squirrel, Sting Like A Bee
A great edit from SB productions.
I had a bit of time today so had a go at modifying my two throw lines. I much prefer the “clean” rope principle where the end of the throw line that you keep hold of is a clean piece of rope i.e. has no knots or tubing.
The second modification I carried out was the removal of the tubing from the bag end of the line and the reduction in the size of the loop. The idea is that the loop is big enough to clip a karabiner into but is far too small to get a hand stuck. Continue reading Clean Rope
Excited to be back paddling and back on the Green after suffering a rib injury before the Green Race. This time though, things are a bit different.

It’s been a few years since Palm release a basic PFD. The Alpha is exactly that, a no frills back to basics PFD that is also ICF approved so can be used by paddlers in whitewater slalom.
This has to be the most epic start to any section of a river that I have seen.
The Palm Equipment Fuse jacket has had an upgrade for 2015. The jacket is constructed from a new light weight three layer fabric and the Glideskin neoprene neck gasket has also been improved. Gone are the harlequin colours of 2014 and in is a very smart Jet grey colour scheme with aqua detailing.
The Fuse jacket is a fairly light weight number and from the couch test has excellent freedom of movement.
