Since then the design has been developed and is close to being released, hopefully sometime in the New Year.
Check out this great edit from Ian Van Wingert showing the Mullet in action.
More movie madness for Movie Monday 30 November 2015. A great mix of movies can be found right here to ease you into your first hours of work this Monday morning. Enjoy!
The GoPro series of cameras are superb, they are small, robust and not too expensive. It is now so easy to knock together a short video of your paddling and share it with the world. Anyone can do it and quite alot do. That is where the problem starts. It is really easy to get a video that looks like all the other kayaking videos that end up on Youtube, Vimeo and Facebook early each week or even worse end up with compromised footage that cannot be used.
Although we are big GoPro fans here at Unsponsored HQ the principles that follow will also work very well with the Contour, Drift and all other action cameras.
This is how I decided to share my adventure down the Grand Canyon fall of 2015, some great times, great lines, and great people! thanks Y’all!
Most of the kayaking videos we see focus solely on the action side of things. This edit from Zac Ruttiman also gives us the lifestyle perspective. I love it.
A view into the lifestyle side of a kayak trip. Come for a ride down the Grand Canyon of the Chlore near Terrace, B.C. and meet some of the people who love to kayak. This video won the Lifestyle Category in the 2015 Aquabatics Film Competition. Enjoy.
I took a huge number of photographs at Paddle Expo 2015 and still have many more posts in draft that I am working my way through. There was so much great paddle sport gear on display and talk about.
There are a number of drafts that I will square away and will be posted here over the next few days. However I also have a whole pile of images from the event that many will find interesting to check out.
I’m currently looking at the Unsponsored Archives and have found several posts from the 2015 Paddle Expo in Germany last September. I’ll be posting these over the next few days. In addition to the photos and videos that I took I had been sent a few other bits and and bobs. The guys from Escape Watersports were out and about at Paddle Expo. Here they take a closer look at the Werner Odatchi and Camino.
I must have taken the best part of 1000 photos at the Paddle Expo this year. It was a great weekend and it was fantastic to be welcomed to stands by manufacturers and distributers from across the globe. All were keen to talk about products and have photos taken. We made some new contacts, met some old friends and made some new ones.
Mama Russia 2 is the second in the series from SBP. Great editing showing some crazy whitewater action.
Some time ago we posted detail of a Contour outfitting modification that Pat Keller had carried out on a Dagger RPM. It looked pretty sweet. However Philip Middleton has gone one step further and not only has he fitted the seat and thigh braces but has also retrofitted the step out pillar and footrests. So this RPM Max now has a complete set of Contour outfitting installed.
Jack Gunter was at last weekends Hurley classic event. After seeing some of Jack’s superb images I thought it would be great to showcase just a few of them here on Unsponsored. Jack has kindly agreed for them to be posted, enjoy!
The following images are from the first day of the event, Saturday the 21st November 2015.
