Although this buyers guide is directed at students in reality it will apply to anyone thinking about taking up the sport. Over the next few weeks many students will be starting Uni and will be looking at joining a club. In most cases the Kayak/Canoe club in a university will be the best club to join.
The biggest spectacle each year at the National Student Rodeo is the Old School competition for those who are no longer students! This year was no exception.
A great show this year with lots of enders, pop-outs and paddle spins.
At last weekend’s National Student Rodeo I took a few minutes of video during the Old School competition.
The raw footage can be seen here.
Unsponsored is happy to announce that we will be supporting the National Student Rodeo (NSR) 2015. The NSR is probably the worlds biggest student freestyle event and is well worth spectating if you can’t take part.
The National Student Rodeo is held at the National Watersports Centre in Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, and in 2015 will be on the weekend 6th-8th March. Camping is just down the road and the party, food and mini film festival will be held at the Old Nottinghamians’ Rugby Club.
Unsponsored will be at NSR over the course of the 6th – 8th March taking photos and video as always.

The 2013 Student Boater X is taking place on the 22nd of June. For a little flavour of what it is all about check out this write up from Jack Roberston about last years event. Enjoy!
The Student Boater X is the biggest unofficial kayaking event on the student paddling calendar and now officially recognised by Bomb Flow it was going to be the biggest so far. With guaranteed sun, cool alpine flows and a huge selection of prize to be won it wasn’t hard to persuade a few hundred student paddlers that a spontaneous inter uni race down the L’Argentiere-la-Bessee slalom course was a good idea. There were five categories, catering for all levels of paddler. With old boys and girls competing for the Bloater X title and swimmers for the Inflatey X title, everyone else found themselves in a fight for the beginner, intermediate and advanced prizes.
