A quick glimpse into a very polished edit about Czech Kayaking featuring two paddlers who have spent a lot of time living here in NZ; Jakub Sedivy and Jakub Nemec.

Monday Morning Motivation - Water of Leith and Fraser River.

I was getting sick of hearing about all the flood runs up North, and then Dunedin and Central Otago jumped into the party too. While not as steep as the Wainui video we posted earlier in the year. Dunedin's Water of Leith, and a newly discovered Central Otago run the Fraser have been getting some local boater attention over the last few days.

Video of the Fraser is from Robert 'Foxy' Hervey and the Central Otago crew yesterday, while the Leith video is from Ewan Rodway from floods in May last year.

The White Water Grand Prix is underway in Canada, well at least the opening party has taken place. The first of the on water events is a Big Wave showdown; so we tracked down this training clip of young ripper Devyn Scott. This flick is showing off the new Wavesport Project X playboat, which seems to be providing an insane amount of air for Devyn's tricks.

If you're keen to checkout a Project X get in contact with Dave at Fergs Kayaks in Wellington.

Queensland has been getting some thorough attention of late. Josh Bond, Adrian Kiernan and several more paddlers have been sweating out the miles to find new runs around Cairns. This quick video showcases a few of the bigger drops that they've found.

Fresh from the active minds of Evan Garcia and Fred Norquist; BOMB FLOW magazine is set to drop bi-weekly edits of whitewater waterfall riding from all over the world. Garcia and Norquist have both been running the 'stouts' and putting wicked videos online over the last couple of years, now that they're working together under the banner of BOMB FLOW there's bound to be plenty more treats being laid. Seek them out on FACEBOOK, or stayed tuned to our site as we'll no doubt be providing links to more of their motivational footage.

With the Bay of Plenty's CanoeFest coming up next week in Kawerau, this little video from Jaxon Webber of the upcoming Kawerau paddling grom's is pretty timely. Jaxon's video skills are increasing by the day too.


We've had a couple of week hiatus as I've found it hard to get to a computer at the right time. Back on track for now and quick look into an upcoming film on the life of legendary American paddler Rob Lesser, and his return to the infamous Stikine Canyon to 'pass-the-torch'.
