What happens when 2 groups of chargers rally around Norway together? You get one fired up crew of G.C. / Nutters sending the biggest drops you can find. Sometimes you win – & – Sometimes you loose.

Stout Hunting – Scotland July 15

Over the last few days Team Unsponsored has been camped out on the West Coast of Scotland. With a number of pieces of gear ready for a final review it made sense to use a couple of the days to hunt down some whitewater that may not have been paddled before. Suffice to say the hunt was very successful.

What has been interesting is that it is very easy to have pretty epic adventures here in the UK.

Using different forms of transport to get myself and my gear to some pretty remote and beautiful places has added to the experience.

Grand Canyon Of The Wenatchee

Grand Canyon of the Wenatchee

Kayaking Tumwater Canyon is fun at a large range of flows. This is my favorite level for these drops. Whitewater can be challenging, stay safe out there.

Norway With River

Regulars to Unsponsored will know that now and again Unsponsored’s little brother River (Militia) breaks out of his maximum security stockade. Last year he made it all the way to Norway. We haven’t been able to release the video edit until now due to a number of international incidents that took place on the way to Norway.

Anyway, he was on the run in Norway for four whole weeks and in that time managed to hit a number of Norwegian classics.

Tumwater Solitude – Sam Grafton

Tumwater Solitude: Sam Grafton Kayaking Class V Big Water

Tumwater Canyon is perhaps the biggest roadside whitewater anywhere. Located just out of Leavenworth, Washington, the Wenatchee River carves a 6000 foot deep gorge though solid granite. Class V and Class VI is just steps from the guardrail. We followed 23 year old Sam Grafton as he lapped this big water section all by himself.
