Soca Katarakt In The Prijon Curve 3.5 Creek

I am a huge fan of the Prijon kayaks of old. I have owned and paddled many from the T-Canyon to the Delirium. So it’s great to see the whitewater range of Prijon kayaks expanding with the release of the Prijon Curve 3.5 Creek.

Risk

The Stikine river is perhaps the one river that burns in my heart as the bracket of experience. This is, for me, the place where all my passion lay bare and raw for all to see. It is more than the river alone. It is more than the memories it gave. For many this river, which has been put on a pedestal, holds no clues-no passion. Instead, others do, these are the places that prepare you to challenge. Implicit in these situations is the notion of personal risk. How we, as thinking organisms, perceive these risk situations is key.

It is not simply a question of can we do this?

But is the question, should we do this?

Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top – First Look

The Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top has landed here at Unsponsored HQ. This may well be an exclusive, it’s not even on the Sweet Protection website yet. It would be fair to say that I have been waiting sometime for Sweet to put a short sleeved paddle top into production and it’s finally here.

Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top - First Look

I think that originally the Sabrosa was not designed to be a full on dry top and was billed as a spray top. However on arrival at Unsponsored HQ it is clear the the Sabrosa is a full on short sleeve dry top. It even states it on the swing tag.

Dave Kersey

We have shared a number of Dave Kersey’s video edits via Movie Monday a few times. Last week I received some sad news that Dave had taken his own life. He was a pillar in the Harpers Ferry, WV USA paddling community.

Dave Kersey

I received a request from Dave’s friend Brad to share the video edit he has created in Dave’s Honour.

From Brad:

I would like it if you could share my video in honor of him. He was combat veteran who served two tours in Iraq and dear friend to many. None of us truly know why he did what he did, but he is missed greatly.
