Rapid Magazine Blog - Immersion research is known for their excellent spray skirts. But, they also have a great lineup of drytops. 
Mt. Hood H2O West Fork Hood
Mt. Hood H2O - I have run this section a few times with my dad at around 4' on the Tucker gauge from snowmelt. I like putting in at Lolo Pass, but for those who are adventure-adverse putting in at the Lake Branch confluence is convenient.

Jackson Kayak Why Corner Wave is my favorite wave on the Ottawa
Jackson Kayak - If you have ever visited the Ottawa River, you have most likely seen, heard of, or been a part of what I refer to as the “Corner Wave Cult”. Situated smack-dab in the middle of McCoys Rapid, Corner Wave is (in my opinion) one of the best waves in the world for freestyle kayaking.

Sea Kayak Stonington The Bold Coast Boot Head
Sea Kayak Stonington - I had a lesson to teach on Cobscook Bay, so Rebecca and I used the opportunity to get away for a couple of days and get in a little paddling and hiking of our own.
