Most paddlers will stick to the area around Hexham and Tyne Green but there are several other stretches of water in the local area that are worth looking at.

If you missed it at the weekend here is the ICF Boater X or Extreme Slalom world cup from Lee Valley.

The question is why have they felt the need to rebrand it as Extreme Slalom. Is everything better if it is Extreme?
