More Crazy

Dave Thompson is perhaps one of the best paddlers you have never heard of. From dropping huge waterfalls, first descents and countless expeditions. Dave is far from your professional paddler. He has shunned sponsors and the limelight for years. I caught up with Dave in the Himalayas and asked him about his adventures.

More Crazy

Dave you are often known as loco Dave or Crazy Dave. Do you think this is justified?

Yes the name is kind of justified, it got started when I was working in Nepal season after season for years, and it was a combination of how hard I was paddling and the levels we would do some runs. Along with a similar outlook to partying and general madness when not on the river, I’m quite well known in Nepal for some reason…

The Chronicles Of Ugg

Many people will now be aware of Whetman equipment but may not be aware of the man behind all those quirky youtube clips and designs.

The Chronicles of Ugg

Back in the 90s a crazy mowaked paddler was often seen, all big boots, bone through his nose and a matrix style coat, making for solo laps of the Dart and further afield.

Around bars, on shuttles and gossip the stories of this crazy paddler made the rounds – how much was truth, how much myth?

Paddlesports Industry Coalition Endorses Paddlesports Retailer

MADISON, WISCONSIN, January 13, 2017 — Today a coalition of leading paddlesports manufacturers endorsed Paddlesports Retailer as the industry’s official tradeshow. Paddlesports Retailer will debut on August 29 – September 1, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin utilizing the common format of an opening on-water demo followed by three days in the hall.

This endorsement followed an eight-week process by the paddlesports industry coalition to unify around one show, to elect an advisory council to be an ongoing industry voice on industry and tradeshow matters, and to lay the groundwork to form a paddlesports trade association.

“We are pleased to endorse Paddlesports Retailer as our industry’s national tradeshow. We are proud of how our industry came together in a very short period of time, defined shared objectives, and rallied behind a focused show we feel will give the paddlesports industry its best commercial and cultural experience,” said Bill Kueper of Wenonah Canoe.
