North Fork Race-Shit running Alberta Canada

Well here is a bit of a post of what I have been up to in the last 3 weeks. I was lucky enough to get selected to race in the elite division for the North Fork Championships.This race was on a totally next level, very stout and lots of moves to make. I end up placing pretty low in the pack, but was super stoked to be appart of such a sick race and that I survived it!!!!

After the race we made our way to Alberta Canada for some stoutin!!!!

Jacobs ladder the stout part of the race for sure!!!!

Ryan Casey,this dude killed it out there and ended up taking the win on the day!!!!

Myself making my way down Jacobs ladder,few days before race day!!!

Would like to say a big thanks to Riot Kayaks for sending me a brand new magnum to the North Fork thanks Heep's!!!!!!

Little White Salmon Race, Metlako Falls!!!

Its been pretty hard to keep the frequent updates going as we are on the road and have had very little Internet time.I have been having an amazing time left Cali a few weeks back and headed to Hood River Oregon for the Little White Salmon Race.This was my second year in a row competing in this sick race.I teamed up with good kiwi mate Dylan Thompson.We didn't have the smoothest lines and ended up finishing in 14th place not the best ha, had Heap's of fun though!!!

A few days after the race we heard word that Metlako falls was in. We gathered a big crew together and made our way to the stout.This is the 3rd time I have fired this big dog stout up was stoked to get back there and fire it up. Here's a few pictures, enjoy!!!
