ICF Extreme

If you missed it at the weekend here is the ICF Boater X or Extreme Slalom world cup from Lee Valley.

The question is why have they felt the need to rebrand it as Extreme Slalom. Is everything better if it is Extreme?

The Dagger Phantom – What Do We Know

So what do we know about the kayak Dagger are currently assigning the name Phantom. Firstly if and when it comes into production the boat will most likely have a different name. The maximum length of boats for the short boat class in races such as the Green Narrows river race is now 9ft. The Phantom will fall within the category.

The first and second prototypes of this Phantom have been on the water for a few years and a third prototype will be hitting the water very shortly. In all likelihood this will be a preproduction model and will represent what the finally Phantom will look like.

British Universities Creek Race 2015

This year past and present kayaking students made the pilgrimage to the Scottish Highlands to take part in the British Universities Creek Race 2015. The race is based in the catchment area of the Glen Etive and Glen Coe with the final venue for the race being dictated by the prevailing water conditions.

The event

Sickline wasn’t the only Pyranha 1, 2 victory this year – check out this cool edit of the BUCR Alumni BoaterX by Team Paddler Mark Mulrain; we’re not sure if he’s sped the video up or if he really is that fast, but either way, he won (and even had time for a quick surf in the qualifiers!)

River Garry – Boater X 2015

The Garry Boater-X is in its 3rd year, held on the dam-release River Garry near Fort Augustus and organised by Kevin Barclay and Daryn Hubbucks in association with the SCA, Pillow Rock and Go Kayaking Scotland. This year, the competition was attended by 41 men, 18 ladies and many more spectators. Here’s a little write-up from my first experience of boater-x.

River Garry - Boater X 2015

The Garry Boater-X 2015 was a truly well-organised event. A friendly host of mainly Scottish paddlers were welcoming on arrival at the river and despite knowing very few other people on arrival, by the time the last finals were held, it seemed that everyone knew everyone despite some fierce rivalries and intense competition!

Reno River Festival 2014

Another Reno River festival is in the books, and it was an interesting one for sure. We started off the festivities in the Ninkasi Penthouse overlooking the WW park for judges meetings and a out of town boater party. Needless to say the beer was top notch and the parings of the different beers with good cheese was a nice high brow surprise for all us river bums. Saturday brought on the freestyle competition and some really funky weather.
