I'm in Europe already, and kicking it Czech style. I've been in the Bratislava, Slovakia following the race in Susice for a 4 day training camp at the course in Curnovo with Vavra Hradilek. It was a rowdy camp, with awesome water levels, and a practically empty course making for ideal training conditions. After 4 days I was ready to die. It felt as though my arms were going to drop off, as we ...

A 30hr flight, and I made it into Europe. It all went pretty sweet. Picked up my sick wagon and headed East.I stayed at the Galasport factory with Vlada and Anna, and raced in their local race. It had 220+ paddlers - A lot more than we usually have to at our club races. Most were youngsters, and that's the cool thing. The next generation in Czech is well and truly strong.Vavra killed it and took ...

A wicked training camp at NZ's Premier training facility almost went a little bit haywire this week after our boats got nicked from the site, and dumped in a grassy paddock a few meters away. Before a friendly hunter picked them up on his way home from shooting a stag, and chucked them in his garage for a day. Fortunately the T.V and almost every news media in the North Island was on our side and...

Toni George getting in the First Chick Descent!!!The Bay of Plenty has been getting hammered and hammered by rain off and on for the last few months.

The NZ National Slalom Championships were held over Easter weekend, amongst the wild weather that has been battling the East coast of NZ. A little bit more juice in the river made for better racing.Kawerau district council has done a lot of work retaining the side of the river further, and taken a couple of the mis-placed rocks from the river bed making it a nicer course to paddle on.The racing ...

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and this wasn't my day. Wills Martin showed class all day, holding his own on the water and progressing through the rounds to pick up the NZ National Extreme Race Championship. Lukas Polaczyk came through in the final, but as a foreigner he wasn't able to claim the NZ title.The event was a 4 cross race starting on a ramp above the citrion rapid on the ...

Another bluebird day greeted us as we stepped out from under our tarpaulin in Hokitka this morning, making it look like mission on for anything. A few hours of breakfast and discussing, the Hokitika River's upper gorges looked pretty attractive. A call to the chopper pilot, and we were set. The group grew as the day went on, from 5 to 8 to 11 finishing at 13 when we reached the top of the ...
