Over the long weekend my friend, Andy, and I went to the Castle River Rodeo Grounds to take part in the biggest whitewater festival in Canada, the Three River Rendezvous. My decision to go wavered when I read that the weather forecast predicted cool temperatures, variable cloudiness, and sprinkled showers. Luckily we pressed on and, […]
My kayaking friend Gemma recorded some footage at the Three River Rendezvous last May. She’s finished editing and tossed it up on YouTube: [Three Rivers Whitewater Rendezvous 09 | YouTube] I make a couple of appearances in the video — I’m the guy with the bright yellow helmet, blue PFD, and red dry top.

Here’s some video footage of me going over Lundbreck Falls on my last kayaking trip taken by my friend Janson. Also, check out Janson’s enthusiastic report on the trip.
Yesterday I went kayaking down the Crowsnest River with a bunch of friends. It was a stretch of the river that none of us had gone down before, and frankly it was a bit boring with very little white water. At the halfway point we came upon Lundbreck Falls. The plan was to portage around […]
Here is another kayaking video from the Kananaskis. In this one, I’m surfing the feature known as The Green Tongue. [Green Tongue – YouTube]
A couple weeks ago I hit up the Kananaskis River for some kayaking with my friend Andy. Just for fun I decided to launch myself from the edge of a steep bank. Andy recorded the event for posterity and I uploaded it as the first video I’ve ever put on YouTube. [Kayaking Drop – YouTube]
