Re: L'edge Superlite

my thoughts on the superlite. it's 43 lbs! it paddles like a composite boat, meaning responsive and quick. i'm going to try slalom racing in it this spring. There are a bunch of photos on my fb page of the superlites. I see a comment from a shorter paddler, willa is short too and she wouldn't change...

video-portage canoe&gear in one trip, by yourself.

My new video “How to portage your canoe and gear in one load, by yourself” is online now. I know you’ll learn something from it. I think that is why canoeing appeals to so many of us. There is always something more to learn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7ec5vKFMCg" onclick="window.open(this.href...

Re: How MITH can save tandem whitewater canoeing.

a couple thoughts... "Angle- Perpendicular to the Eddy Wall- you want to go through as directly as possible. 90 degrees" means the beginner has to be able to recognize what an eddy wedge is. Plus that the turning momentum is more important than the actual angle of the canoe as it crosses the wedge. ...

you bring up some good points, but.... :) "Prepare is looking ahead and talking about what eddy to catch and how to catch it (e.g. "This one will be on the draw side for the bow paddler, and we'll weight our right knees."). -at an intro level they don't need to know what an eddy looks like. less inf...

Re: How MITH can save tandem whitewater canoeing.

yeah i thought it was pretty funny that they appeared that way on the website. The reader has to note that one technique (tilt upstream) is for creeking (solo plastic flat bottom boats) while MITH is for tandem. i promise to be more clear about who the technique is for in the future.

Re: How MITH can save tandem whitewater canoeing.

Hey Rick thanks for the comments. Glad you like it. I try to be subtle with this self promotion stuff, so if people are finding the videos and tech tips helpful, goal accomplished. Next video is on rolling... it's going to change how you roll, I bet.

How MITH can save tandem whitewater canoeing.

Canoeists are a traditional bunch... some might say obstinate, in the face of change. When it comes to canoeing, we’re slow to accept anything that might challenge our knowledge or lack thereof. The exception of course is that we all welcome a new canoe. But opening your mind to MITH will change the...
