National Student Rodeo

The National Student Rodeo 2019 begins in just over week. This huge annual event takes place each March in Nottingham in the UK. Last year the event was cancelled due to some horrendous weather conditions here in the UK. The year before that the water quality on the whitewater course wasn’t good enough so the event was pushed onto the flat water lake near by. This year it will hopefully be good water and blue skies.

Dave Fusilli vs Bren Orton

Dave Fusilli is one of my favorite people in the world and by far the person I have learn’t the most from both on and off the water. I travelled the USA with Dave for three years on the ProTour and learn’t a lot of lessons the most important one that I take away though is “You don’t have to be serious to do serious things, lighten up and enjoy life”. Awesome day messing around on a little 10ft waterfall.

Beating Cold Hands

I reckon cold hands are almost worse than cold feet. When my hands get cold they hurt and as they warm back up they really hurt.  If the air and water temperature isn’t too bad then I’ll go through the pain barrier as once my hands are warm they’ll stay warm.  However if it is super cold then its hard to push through the pain barrier as it takes so much longer.  Cold hands will limit your ability to hold stuff. If you aren’t able to hold your paddle then you are pretty stuffed.
