I had grown up seeing so many videos of one of the biggest classics of Norway, the Lower Rauma. Finally getting the chance to experience it was unreal and it was everything I could have imagined, and more. I not only ended up getting the 3rd descent of Brennenfossen which is an ultra stout that Bren first descented in 2016. I also ended up deciding to run Flemmingsfossen which is one of the most intimidating drops I have done as it has a very hard lip to line up, as well as only about a 20ft window where the drop doesn’t land on rocks. It was one hell of a day and I definitely can’t wait to get back to it, although I don’t think I will be running those 2 stouts again.

The boys didn’t waste any time to get me straight into the stouts for my first day ever in Norway. We put onto the Myrkdal-selva which is one of the sickest runs, but generally done lower. Once on the water the boys made it clear it was higher than they expected, but that didn’t stop us. They just gave me beta the whole way with no scouting. After the first big sequence I was definitely gripped, but I started to get more comfortable as the day went on. It was a a hell of a first day, plenty of stout holes, and nothing but good times.

Find The Biggest Hole Then Aim For It

Find The Biggest Hole Then Aim For It

“You can only run it blind once” is pretty much what sums up getting to lead someone like Adrian down the Zambezi for their first time. Last year I got to lead Bren, and this year I got the pleasure of being able to lead Adrian. In the end as long as they are ok at kayaking the Zambezi is nothing but just JOY big water for a few hours every day. But for the trip to begin right, I had to beta Adrian for the run, which usually just summed up to telling him to aim for the biggest holes…

Paddling In Kenya

Kenya is a hidden jewel in the crown of Africa. Not many people will think of Kenya as a kayaking destination, rather attention is drawn to the waves in Uganda. However, Kenya has some of the most amazing rivers to offer! From day creeking to multi-day trips where the wildlife proves you are not the top of the food chain.
