Unsponsored Q&A Series – Paul Robertson

I’ve been hunting down Paul Robertson aka Cheesy to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series for a few months. Paul kindly agreed to fit it into his super tight schedule. Paul is a former world C1 freestyle champion and a well known face on the freestyle scene. Paul is now Palm Equipments brand manager and marketing director which places him at the heart of kit development.

I am extremely grateful that Paul managed to find some time to take part in the Unsponsored 2012 Q&A series.

Don’t be a Menace to Stout Central – Part 1

A great video from Unsponsored’s little brother – River Militia.

Don’t be a Menace to Stout Central – Part 1 from THE RIVER MILITIA on Vimeo.

We struck gold here in August for some nigh water runs on the classics and with the help of a couple of cold nights and some local ninjas meant we managed to bag some sections that would typically be too high during summer!

Keep your ear to the ground for part 2…. It’s a jaw dropper!
