Would you follow Dane down the Zambezi?Continue reading
After watching a couple of edits over the weekend I thought that Unsponsored should have a Movie Monday – Dane Jackson Special.
So here it is, enjoy.
Dane Jackson is simply a superb paddler and this great edit by Nomade Media House really highlights the fact.
Take a minute or two to watch the best kayaker in the history of white water kayaking throw some big air on the Ottawa River! Dane Jackson never fails to impress with his smooth and snappy style! This short film is made for the pure enjoyment of the kayaking world and the appreciation of all paddlers who get out and enjoy nature and its waterways!
Jackson Kayak have released the new Nirvana kayak. The boat has taken the last year or so to design/test/develop. The first production mold was completed last month with production kayaks landing this month. It has been designed as a “Creek Boat for Rapid Decent”.
The Nirvana is a fast 9ft racer creek boat that will be available in three sizes.
The Zambezi Express – Follow Bren Orton and Dane Jackson down the Zambezi! This trip was cool change of pace from our regular schedule of dropping waterfalls and being scared of getting hurt.
We spent the past three weeks kayaking awesome rapids everyday and just having fun. Huge thanks to everyone for all of the hospitality!Continue reading
I don’t know when the change happened, whether it was a gradual awakening or a sudden realisation, but I have woken up. I have realised that there really is only one person’s opinion of me that is truly important, one that matters more than any others, and that is my own. And, this has undoubtedly made me a better leader and coach, and I have been able to give myself permission to move away from ‘the edge’.
You see, with this realisation, there comes ownership and a sense of release. The release is in the knowledge that you do not have to do anything simply to impress others. In this era of sharing, likes, kudos and followers we can start to believe that people are watching us and keeping score of our achievements. This leads almost inexorably into doing ever more difficult and dangerous challenges, raising the bar all the time, living on the edge simply to draw attention to ourselves and impress our ever demanding audience. The growing body of evidence surrounding the number of people who are dying taking selfies is alarming, and looking more specifically at risk sports, it is my opinion that people are pushing harder and, critically, sooner than ever before.
It’s Monday so welcome to Movie Monday 30 April 2018 at Unsponsored HQ. We have a fine selection of edits to distract you from that thing that you should be really cracking on with.
