The 2nd Swim

Well, it was bound to come sooner or later. As my friend Kyle always says, “We are just in between swims”. I have to admit I was a little disappointed though, but it was actually quite funny at least to me. Phillip and I had just ran the Nanty and we decided we’d try our […]

The 2012 Green River Race Videos

A new perspective on the Race thanks to a sweet Heli-Cam!! A couple videos from Pilot Collective Media. And of course the Carnage Video from Pilot Collective Media. Not really digging the music, but the footage is good.

The 2012 Green River Race Results

Here are the 2012 Green River Race Results. I have to admit I was hoping Adrew Holcombe would take home his 3rd victory. But it was still an awesome race and look at those times. I also read that the river was running at a whopping 12 inches!!!! LONG K1 Place Bib Name Class Boat […]

The 2012 Green Race

Well, I made it to the Green early. I was on the trail at 7:45am and when I arrived at Gorilla I was one of 3 people there. It’s freezing by the way when you are down by the river. I was in a great spot right on a rock looking directly into Gorilla and […]

The Green Through an iPhone’s Eye

Here are some short videos of my first time down to the green. Hope you enjoy, and if I haven’t said it before “It’s Even Better In Person!!!” A nice seal launch below Gorilla. This means they didn’t run it, but it’s still really cool. Three runs down Gorilla. There is a little bit of […]

First Trip to the Green

Friday I made my first trip in to the Green River Narrows. I left Bryson City at 10am got to the Pulliam trail head about 11:45am to make the hike in to the green. The first part of the hike is pretty easy but when you take the trail down to the narrows you are […]

Full Moon Paddle

Today was the last day the Nanty was to be released until December for scheduled maintenance on the dam. I went down with a couple of friends and got a few laps in on the falls. This was great because I finally did the Micro to Macro move for the first time. Pretty excited about […]

Gasp, the Roll Killer

So I discovered a habit I have and have been continually working to break. My roll is pretty good but I noticed that when I get tired, sometimes it might take me 4-5 attempts before I ever roll up. One day I realized the problem. It was the sound that brought it to my attention. […]

Bombergear Hydrobomb

I just got my new Bombergear Hydrobomb long sleeve drytop in and I am stoked. I purchased it from Endless River Adventures, which is a great and personable place to get kayaking gear. My intial feelings are that I have a winner. This drytop is super comfy. I got an XL and it fits perfectly. […]

Gorilla

Gorilla is probably the most famous Class V rapid in Western North Carolina, and most definitely the most famous of the Green River. Even though I have only paddled for a few months, I have heard many tales and seen lots of videos of the infamous Gorilla. While Gorilla may not be the most dangerous […]

The Green River Narrows

The Green River Narrows was one of the first reasons I decided to start paddling. Gorilla, probably the most famous rapid, is just captivating to watch as people barrel down it. I somehow stumbled across some YouTube videos of the Green and it was on from there. I have spent hours now watching these videos […]

The Ocoee, Round 2

Today was one of the most beautiful days of paddling I have had. Leaves were falling, water levels were good, and it was just a little cloudy. Kyle, Ryan, and I all left for the Ocoee this morning about 9:30. There were a lot of people there but overall I didn’t feel like the play […]

The Book of Legends

The legends section was inspired by a recent YouTube video I watch titled the book of legends. I thought it would be cool to write about legendary pieces of kayaking whether it be people, boats, or rivers. This was a preview of the Adidas Sickline Team‘s Journey to the Book of Legends on the Bashkaus […]
