There's no whitewater in Vermont during the summer. they need 2 to 3 inches, depending how fast in comes down, for the rivers to be whitewater boatable. Always keeping a eye on thunderstorms and where their located. His best change for whitewater is just go to Deerfield, there's flies paddling all o...

I don't know the whole situation, but the new C1s maybe faster then kayaks, (depending on course design probably). Haily Thompson C1 times were faster then her K1 times She won both classes, but still, thats quite the comparison. In the past depending on the course, the kayaks were consistently the ...

I didn't mean that you shouldn't learn to paddle on both sides, in fact I think its a good thing and at times it may just be a hard ferry, in that case a single move, switch may help you, but going back in forth in hard rapids, when a roll maybe needed. I would stay on my roll side. On easy class tw...

I agree with phil, there so many little things you can do that make the move easier and more efficient that are hard to see from another canoe or shore. Egos need to be put aside and questioned asked. I agree with jakke too. If an effort to improve, a paddler should push themselves and take the hard...

If your only using it for tandem, its a good idea to put them closer togeather, the ME a bit wet if you can't get you ends up. deck c2 are very close and you can bump into each other once in a while, when that happens, the two of you probably aren't in sink with each other, it will also turn easier,...
