B.C. A bit late

March 20, 2012
Last fall, Ben Hawthorne and I rallied from the Seattle/Tacoma area to the promised land: British Columbia. Over the course of three days we were able to paddle Tatlow creek twice and the Box Canyon of the Ashlu twice.

Pyranha Large Fusion Review, Photo Dump & Self-Support Fun from 2010 & 2011

February 20, 2012
Written by Kyle McCutchen. Photos by Kyle McCutchen and Tina Swan. I have a confession to make. I can’t kick the habit of owning a Pyranha Fusion for river touring. I started off by innocently dabbling with some remote class III here and there, and before I realized my addiction had taken hold I was… View Article

The Pelechuco: A Big Bowl Of Via

January 4, 2012
           I have learned over the years that when you go on kayaking trips by yourself you can never be too sure what to expect.  I first met Cooper Lambla in Cusco Peru following a week of rolling solo through the heart of the Peruvian Andes.  We barely knew each other for thirty minutes and we already… View Article

Bachelor parties and flat tires…

December 11, 2011
To close the trifecta of why kayaking is fun, let us not forget about river trips. Waking up next to the river, floating for a few miles, seeing new places, and making camp again all amongst good friends might be on of the best parts of our sport. In that vein, I thought I would… View Article
