Re: Ben Marr goes back to school

Either someone didn't do their job, or they weren't allowed to use the footage, but don't put in a completely irrelevant clip when he's talking about something so monumentally impressive! There were a number of pictures and clips offered. Either because of the editorial time constraints or other re...

Re: River Tummel - Big release?

Josh, I reckon there were about 75 paddlers on the Tummel, possibly wishing for those reported HIGH levels. I can only tell you what I saw today. The level (IMO) was slightly higher than the 'normal' compensation release. I have some pictures on FB, if you check them out or friend me you'll see the ...

Re: Finding it impossible to roll.

jamey, my first bit of advice would be to get a 'good coach' that actually knows what they are doing and what they are talking about to help you. You have said you have ben on courses, but did the coach there do enough to help? You might need one to one. Where are you staying? If you're in Stirling ...

Re: Alps conditions

Just back this morning from Briancon. Gyr: There is a (in my opinion) show stopper tree a few mins from the bridge - get in. It is straining a lot of debris through it. There is a marginal line (in my opinion). We decided to portage river left. The tree covers 3/4 of the river. From there down it wa...

Two weeks tomorrow the best of the best will congregate at the Church of the River Moriston. Many will try, few will succeed and there will be only one winner in the top twenty.
