Flash Floods And Waterfalls In Indonesia

Flash floods and waterfalls in Indonesia

The crew flew out to Indonesia to find some waterfalls and the first one of the trip was a beauty! Had crazy levels and a flashflood in less than 24 hours, crazy to experience that and see how quickly things can change on the river. Looking forward to exploring the country more over the next few weeks! Big thanks to Eddiline kayak club for help with safety and logistics!

When Dreams come True: China Adventure with Nick Troutman

I was fortunate enough to travel to China to film a TV piece and get to run a first descent and dream waterfall of mine- the Detian Waterfalls on the boarder of China and Vietnam. It was incredible filled with cultural experiences and some epic first descent waterfalls.

The Rhondu Gorge Of The Indus

In November Dane met up with the California boys to experience a river like no other, the Rhondu gorge of the Indus. Flowing 86 miles from the valley of Skardu, it has become a river even the top kayakers of the world wonder if they feel up to the challenge. It’s got insane power flowing down steep rapids, creating huge features, making every rapid a stout after the next. It’s a river so big that the first question people get asked when they just completed the Indus, is “how many portages did you do”? Many of the worlds best kayakers often portage, usually between the 5-8 realm. This trip saw the Cali boys portage only 4 times, as well as see Dane get the lowest number of portages ever done, down to 1, by completing the first descent of the infamous Malupa rapid. It was an experience none of them will be forgetting anytime soon, and it’s just one of the places that it’s hard to believe we get to experience with our kayaks.

Juicy Home Run

Super lucky to get some juicy flow on my home river despite january’s cold temperature. This is my Home Run. The river I started kayaking on. My first strokes, my first swims, first fears, first good races, first success…It might not be the most impressive or the best whitewater in the world but it’s still very good and this place will always hold a special place in my heart.

Wailuku River – Hawaii

Wailuku River - Hawaii
Wailuku River – Hawaii

Hawaii is clearly already known for being a paradise to vacation to, and while that is definitely true. I know the Big Island of Hawaii to be home of one of the greatest rivers the in the world, the Wailuku. Located in Hilo, Hawaii, it has 2 sections that are some of the best joy sections I ever get to experience. Both sections can be down down to bare bones levels, but once it rains you can also step it up and fall off some bigger drops. I find it almost impossible to not come back every winter, and I don’t plan on stopping coming anytime soon. We got our first day of shredding at the perfect level for the bomb sections, as well as get one of the stouts. Such an epic start to the trip, and can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring!

Minus Rapids

Minus Rapids

The water was coming up slightly every day during the trip, but the last few days it really started to make bigger jumps in the level. Since the water was higher and we had gotten our fill downstream we decided to head up for a lap of the minus rapids. Here is a quick GoPro mashup of the minus rapids and the last few days enjoying one of my favorite rivers of all time!

Kayaking In The Shadow Of Everest

Before he was guiding for Backshall, before he became synonymous with the Himalayas, before so much more Daz Clarkson-King was kayaking in the shadow of Everest in October 2003.

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…
