Although the falls at Rock Island run often in the winter and spring, it’s rare to get the chance in the summer. Luckily due to some issues with the generators they released some water out of the dam, bringing in the spout line and sieve city. It was on the low end, but it was at a level we essentially never see! We knew it was gonna be runnable, but what tricks to throw was the question.

First Run In The Antix 2.0

Towards the end of May the Antix 2.0 mold finally arrived, and right as we were able to get the first boats out of the mold to paddle, some rain hit and we were able to get a low water lap on the Caney Fork. Despite the lower water, the Antix 2.0 made the run just as fun as always, and can’t wait to get back on there with some juice!

Wanted to make this edit for ages, but I wanted to wait to have a space to be able to record it and edit it properly. Big thanks to everyone supporting us on patroen, we saved up the last several months and used the money to upgrade our camera and light system massively. Still shooting on the Panasonic GH5 but now with a good tripod, external monitor and lighting.

Verus Kayaks Hellbender Walkthrough

The Hellbender is Verus Kayaks first full slice design, and a new addition to our 2020 lineup. This boat was born from a craving for cartwheels and a dream of a slicey boating revolution. Combining a modern hull and outfitting, with classical inspiration from the days of rodeo, this boat is your go-to fun machine. This is the perfect craft to squirt, splat and style up your local run!

We are excited to announce the 2020 lineup from Verus Kayaks. These kayaks have been in the works for the last year and we are excited to bring you the Gladiator 2.0 and the Hellbender. Our goal with these kayaks is to play the river as much as possible and offer the most aggressive designs on the market today. We took the feedback we received from the original Gladiator and created a more playful stern and improved the outfitting. The Hellbender came from our love of slicey boating and the idea of creating a boat that will maximize fun on class III and IV rivers. We are stoked to get these boats to the people by June! Stay tuned as we will be announcing pre-orders in the coming weeks. You will be able reserve your boat in advance with custom color options!

Bren Freeride Highlights 2019

Bren Freeride Highlights 2019

I think this is my favourite sort of kayaking at the moment, trying to be creative, thow a couple tricks and send some big lines all in the same kayak. Nothing new people like Billy Jones, Dave Fusilli and a host of others have been doing this for years, I just didn’t know what to call it? It isn’t river running, it isn’t freestyle, it isn’t really creeking, Half slicing? Freeride?
