EFFECTive River Running Tactics

Looking back on my introduction to paddling on moving water, the extent of my tactical knowledge was based purely on ‘looking where I wanted to go’, developing my technical skills and progressing onto more difficult rivers. This approach soon put me in positions looking at eddies I want to be in as I flew past them! As technical proficiency and just ‘looking where I wanted to go’ wasn’t always getting me where I wanted to be, something had to change, it was time to develop my river running tactics!

I’ve also managed to get my hands on a mark 2 Tuna on numerous occasions and seen the improvements that have come through from the mark one.

Waka Gangsta - First Look

I’d got wind of a larger design coming from Waka early in the summer so I held off buying a mark 2 Tuna on the basis that the mark 1 and 2 always worked for me but felt a little bit like they weren’t performing to their full potential.

Pressies For Paddlers 2016

A great deal of outdoor equipment passes through the halls of Unsponsored HQ. Some great, some good and some not so good. As we get closer to the 25th it has now become a little bit of tradition (and to save me answering loads of “What should I get ….. for Christmas, they have just got into kayaking/canoeing/SUP?” type questions via email) to put together a list of gear that paddlers and general outdoors type folk might appreciate as presents at Christmas time.

Present Ideas For Paddlers 2015

So here it is.
