Columbia River Gorge - Pow Day

An incredible amount of rain fell over night and turned our dry river beds into raging brown torrents. We went hard as our old “off the couch asses” could go and got 2 LW laps, and the highest Trout-Wind run I’ve ever done. It was an epic homecoming after being in South America for 6 weeks. Thank you pacha mama for providing once again!

Are You Off To The Tyne Tour?

The Tyne Tour is one of the best kayak/canoe events in the UK. Since its origins as the Mike Jones Rally the Tyne tour has become a firm favourite of mine. 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. This post is not designed to be a definitive guide in any way but is intend to offer a few ideas so you can maximise your paddle time and choice if attending the tour. So here we have it The Tyne Tour – A Brief Water Guide.

Camping, food and retailers are all based at Tyne Green right on the river bank in Hexham. Hexham is large market town so there are plenty of shops, pubs and takeaways if required.

The main river for the tour is the North Tyne. Local canoe/kayak clubs provide safety cover on the largest whitewater section of the North Tyne at Rescue Rock. Each Saturday of the Tyne Tour you will find me sat on Rescue Rock taking thousands of still images.

Last Paddle Around Whistler

Last paddle around Whistler

Levels were low, people were either not motivated or injured to go kayaking but luckily Nouria was around so we decided to go kayak on the ultra river around Whistler, the Cheakamus. Many sections on this river, some are done multiple times 365 days a year, others people haven’t dropped into within the last 5 years. We decided to paddle them all! This video shows the Upper, the Balls2theWalls and the Daisy Lake section of the Cheakamus river. Happy days!
