First Shipment of Ke Nalus in

New England SUP (23 min. ago) - And beautiful they are. There’s been a lot of talk about the extraordinary improvement the 1st generation of Ke Nalus represents to stand up paddles. The extra clean entry and great catch, no wobble stroke, clean easy exit that rewards an efficient stroke, the almost anti-gravity seeming lightness.  read more...

Pamela Creek - Vancouver Island

LiquidLore (1 hour ago) - Pamela Creek is one of those tiny creeks that turns out to be really fun. It's in the Gold River zone on Vancouver Island - the Gold and its tributaries represent an unusually concentrated region of whitewater with good varitey and varying difficulties - nothing there is too crazy either. The Pamela is one of the more challenging creek runs out there. It has wicked clear water, nice bedrock and classic V.I. mank. It ends on the Ucona River, where there are two really nice small waterfalls to end on a high note. Here's the beta for Pamela , and of course some photos. Ryan Bayes in the midst of a sweet two set. Island master Vollmers dropping hot in a slot. Stacked bedrock. The first gimme waterfall once out on the Ucona. Dan Bentley fires u...  read more...

Cataract Creek, Alberta

LiquidLore (2 hrs. ago) - Amusingly, some of the big rapids on this run are named after creatures/things of legend and myth; Hercules, Titan and Leviathan for example. Pretty cool actually. This is the only run I've done in Alberta - I had the chance to sneak away for a day while in Calgary for work, and this is what I got to paddle. It was a fun day, and it was great to meet and hang out with the Calgary crew. I will definitely be back.  read more...

Callaghan Creek Update Ipp Threat

LiquidLore (3 hrs. ago) - And now something of much greater importance. It was recently brought to the attention of the local paddling community that Innergex (the power company that owns the lions share of run-of-river hydro projects in SW BC, including Ashlu, Rutherford, Big Silver, upper Lillooet etc) have begun preliminary surveying for the construction of an IPP on Callaghan Creek.  read more...

2011 Callaghan Race Recap

LiquidLore (4 hrs. ago) - Wednesday, July 20. The Callaghan was too high to paddle. With the massive snowpack that fell during the winter of 2010/2011 and the dismal summer that we've been having in southwest BC it really looked like the Callaghan Race would have to diverted to a race on the upper Cheak because of high water - a bit of a bummer after all the training runs and the stoke that had been building for the few weeks prior to the event. Just 2 days later the rain stopped, it stayed cloudy and it got very cool - Mother Nature realized how nice it would be to have a race on the Callaghan and basically turned off the taps, dropping the Callaghan down every day thereafter. While we were still uncertain what to do on Friday night, we got there on Saturday morning to see the level had dropped out to a...  read more...
