Flying Unicorns at the NRF Big Air Ramp comp – The first day of the Nile River Festival competition was hilarious. Chilled out big air ramp comp into the lake just after registration for the main events had taken place. We caw some big airscrews, wipeouts and some hilarious inflatable unicorn flips.
Looking forward to the rest of the comp and the whitewater events over the weekend.
The Problem With Bomb Proof Rolls – I think instructors who perpetuate the concept of a “bomb-proof” roll do their students a disservice.
First of all, there really is no such thing as a “bomb-proof” roll. The term alludes to a roll that’s so reliable, and so fine-tuned, that it never fails. That’s misleading and unrealistic. Every experienced instructor knows that given sufficient “conditions”, everyone eventually bails and swims – and in fact, the best paddlers I know have all taken swims at one time or another.
Hello, my name is Anton Sveshnikov, I’m kayaker from Russia, and I have an offer that might be interesting for you.
The Altai mountains are located in South Siberia. It is the best region in Russia for whitewater kayaking. You’ve probably seen some epic videos about this place. From classic “Glorious way to die” to modern “Book of legends” by Adidas Sickline team; and probably already heard about such iconic brands of Altai as Bashkaus river, Mazhoy Gorge, King of Asia race.
Altai has all you need for perfect kayak trip: wide variety of rivers, ultimate beauty of nature, safe and friendly environment. But this place needs one more thing to become new whitewater Mecca – a proper river guidebook.
