Arriving In India

Arriving In India

Epic first day in India! We paddled the Iri Janipura river which was massive and we think it is the highest descent so far. Levels where rising on us throughout our session which made it pretty intimidating and we where all pretty stoked to be off the river at the bottom. Got into a good old cluster f**k and couldn’t find our driver, waited in the rain for a few hours before being rescued… So far India has been awesome!

River Mint – Cumbria

The rain has hit many parts of the UK and the rivers in some areas have been huge, just not anywhere near Unsponsored HQ. This reminded me of one of my last flood level trips early last year. On the 25th February 2017 Team Unsponsored ran the Mint in Cumbria (UK). The end of that week had seen storm Dorris hit the UK with high winds and significant amounts of rain for majority of the North. This resulted in high water levels for the few hours we were on the river.

It Is Still Pretty Cold

It is still pretty cold out there. The guys have made it to the Ottawa.

It Is Still Pretty Cold

We made it to the Ottawa but levels are still low as the melt hasn’t started yet- but we can literally smell spring right now!

Soon the Ottawa will change entirely and we will be surfing big waves, but for now it’s joy laps on class III which is not the end of the world either.
