Remember the river we cleaned the lines up on by cutting out the trees so it would be in prime condition when the high water came? The highwater is here and the river is amazing. It’s named the Venter Ache for anyone wondering.Senders
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!SENDERS
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.Send.
A reminder from the Send team to live life to the fullest.Continue reading
“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…Dane Jackson
The Senders hit the Falls Of Falloch.
On our way south to Kendal Mountain Festival we stopped off at the Falls of Falloch for a quick park and huck mission. Such a wicked little waterfall in Scotland and just off the main road too!Continue reading
The lads are living the dream.
Things are crazy busy at the moment and Adrian’s laptop died with the Tibet 03 project file on it. Which means it’s going to be a minute or so before we manage to get him a new one and get that edit done. In the meantime we are in Oetz, having an absouloute blast on the Upper Wellerbruecke.
Just a quick one to try and highlight some common mistakes and how to fix them!
Let me know if this helps at all. My apologies to the beater in the blue boat.Continue reading

This probably the best shot we’ve seen of the new Palm Equipment PFD as worn by Bren Orton in a number of videos.
This shot is from Dewerstone. The production version could be dropping soon.
Adrian Mattern shows us how to replace the rope backhand system in an EXO kayak.
