Immersion Research K2 Union Suit – Review

Way back in 2013 Mark Mulrain kindly sent one of the new IR K2 Union Suits to try out along with the Royale spraydeck. As I get ready for some cold weather paddling tomorrow (Oct 2020) it is still the thermal I go to first if I am planning on wearing a drysuit.

What Memory Card For The GoPro Hero9?

One of the biggest areas that is overlooked when getting a video/camera setup for trips out is the speed of your  Micro SD card.

If you get an error with the camera it will probably be down to the memory card that is being used.

The GoPro Hero9 has a memory card capacity of up to 256GB. Due to the increase in performance of the GoPro Hero9 I would suggest using cards that are 64GB or above.

Just to make it clear old school is relative, for some of you out there it may be a blast all the way back to 2010! As a reminder for this journey back in time we are going back to the 1990s and early 2000s.

Antix – Upper Gauley

Antix – Upper Gauley

Though every run that I have gotten the new Antix on has been dope, I have been waiting for the chance to get it on the Upper Gauley. I just knew it was gonna be so fun, and the ultimate boat for it. I was definitely not disappointed, it was better than I expected. With the 2.0 it just seemed like there were 10x as many moves as there was before, all the way down to even the final rapid. Every little seam was possible to hold an endless squirt, and the ferries and moves were even better with that extra speed. It didn’t hurt that I got to paddle with Stephen and Clay who had been there all summer, so they were able to show me all the new moves they had found. I was absolutely exhausted by the end, but I could do that day after day, and continue to find new moves every time. It was glorious.

Adidas Five Ten Trail Cross Mid Pro – Review

We do a fair bit of mountainbiking at Unsponsored HQ when there isn’t much water around and we have been using Five Ten shoes from the very start.

The newest addition to the flat pedal mountain bike range is the Five Ten Trail Cross. The version we have here is the Mid version which has much better ankle protection in the form of D30 inserts.

Winter’s Coming: Paddling Through Shorter Days And Frosty Mornings

After a turbulent year, we suddenly find ourselves on the cusp of winter and the endless combinations of cold, wet and windy days presented by the good old British weather. As we say farewell to our shortie cags and board shorts until next year, let’s remember to pack the essential clothing and kit which can make a cold day on the water more comfortable and reduce the risk of hypothermia, cold-water shock, frozen fingers and hours shivering misery!
