What a weekend, the UK took a battering over the course of the weekend with water levels. The Tees rose to just under 3m at Middleton over the weekend. That is almost twice the height normally seen at this time of year.
Friend of Unsponsored Sam Ellis ran Low Force at these super high levels. To put this into context this is what Low Force typically look likes.
Sam Ellis has created this superb edit of him out in Alaska earlier this year. Sam is truly an outstanding paddler and easily ranks up there with the best paddlers the world has to offer.
What makes him really outstanding is that he is a really nice guy. Keep charging Sam.
