The leaves are changing colors. The parking lot is full of cars with long boats loaded. It must be Green Race season. With only one week until the race everyone is putting in lots of river time trying to dial in their lines. This video shows a few highlights from the last couple days of training.

This year started straight away with some of my favourite runs in Europe. After a cold winter in Germany where we had toured a number of classic runs we were eager to look for great rivers at the very beginning of spring. Corsica appeared to be a great target as it offered perfect water levels and great weather in April. Corsica turned out to be a perfect start into a typical European paddle season. “Liquid Europe” proved to be a great target as it provided me/us with some of my/our favourite runs. I’ve been lucky to paddle some of my favourites together with my friends. As much as I’ve enjoyed these rivers I hope you are looking forward to visiting some of them, too. I’m sure you will enjoy these “vibes” as much as I did.

Zambezi Life takes a look at one of the Local Porters, Mukumba and his thoughts on the Batoka Dam and shows the beauty of the gorge and the epic kayaking it harbors. The Dam construction is due to begin next year and threatens the culture that the Zambezi's whitewater has developed over the years. The mystery surrounding the dam and the local benefits are very unclear and leaves a lot unanswered questions about who is winning and losing in this situation. Are the locals getting blindsided with promises that will never be fulfilled?

“We think we can control the river, but really, we are all at the mercy of the water. Respecting the water will connect you to something bigger than yourself. Disrespecting it is not recommended. Inspired by and featuring a quote from River Days: Travels on Western Rivers by Jeff Rennicke.”

Quebec is known for its massive spring floods that cause waves like Gladiator, the Ruins, and Detonator to form on swollen rivers across the province. This so called phenomena has been termed "stakeout" by Tribe Alliance in order to describe the ensuing chase for big water and has provided the inspiration for events such as the Whitewater Grand Prix. However, there is more to Quebec freestyle kayaking than just spring floods. Montréal has some of the best playboating waves 10 minutes from the heart of the city that normally run most of the summer. Places like Habitat 67 and Lachine Rapids offer amazing potential for the progression of the sport. In addition, there is a certain lifestyle associated with living in the big city meanwhile getting to enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular whitewater. Warm water, sunny days, and awesome waves easily make Montréeal one of the top paddling destinations for any freestyle boater.

Whitewater kayaking is a mental game. The 7 chutes Ste-Anne is one of the steepest, stout, technical class V section you can find around Quebec. This section consists of seven waterfall from 20ft to 70ft high. Once a kayaker enter in this committing canyon, the only way to exit is to run each one of them. In this video, we try to share the feelings and factors each kayaker encounters when facing theses drops. Armed with an FS700, a drone and multiple cameras, the Quebec Connection crew immortalize their descent of the class V canyon.

White water kayaking in South India, until very recently, was a sport that very few people had heard about. A small group of passionate kayakers took it upon themselves to not only explore the hidden gems that this country had to offer but to promote the sport in anyway possible. Thus the idea of the first ever Malabar River Festival was born, a two day river festival aimed at popularizing and creating awareness about this amazing adventure sport. The festival brought together about 30 kayakers from all over India and various other parts of the world to culminate into the biggest adventure race this country has ever witnessed. Presented in video is the story of how the party unfolded.

Send It, ME rides the Bottom Moose in 2012! Check out the article at our website listed in the video.
First try with the Jackson Levator elevated mount. Shot with the old GoPro Hero HD, this setup really needs the new GoPro Hero 3 Black with the remote control...now I have a reason to upgrade.
4 days of paddling between Christmas and New Years 2012...Lower Big Creek, Greenbriar and the Little River in the Smokies, and a day on the Tellico River to wrap it up.
Flows were good the entire month of November...from 400-550almost every weekend. Paddlers showed up and boofed, splatted, flipped, swam and high-fived their way down the Gorge all month while the rest of the southeast was dry. This is all hand-held and mostly shaky shore footage...hard to control the shakes in the GORGE.
A riveting account of YT's boat retrieval....he swam in the cave at Fist a week earlier, barely escaping the jaws of doom but his boat and paddle were lost...a week later a crew paddled in at 420 cfs and found the boat. Paddle still belongs to the Gorge, but the Stomper is intact and happy.
Low water stern mount footage of the Russell Fork Gorge, 2 laps on a gorge-ous sumer day in the Grand Canyon of the South. Level was around 270 cfs.
