my first trip ever to norway

Stomping NorwayThis year I had the opportunity to spend 7 weeks in the country of trolls, mosquitos, sun 24/7 and whitewater everywhere. We started our trip in the south of Norway, the Telemark. Levels were already low there, but we could still paddle the Cali-Section on the Augsbygdai- truely a classic!
After doing laps on the Augsbygdai for a few days we decided to move on and drove to Voss.
Voss is the capital of whitewater kayaking in Norway, so many awesome rivers around which offer several sections at any waterlevel. Every year the Ekstremsportveko takes part in Voss and that’s the time where you want to be there. Heaps of kayakers and serveral other outdoor people, partys every night and super sick events like extremraces, teamraces or boatercross events  every day.

Grand Prix 2014 "My Wager"

Ok I haven’t written on this blog for quite
some time now…but I’ve got some time to go on an old EG rant.
So the talk of the Whitewater world right now is the the upcoming event of the year “The Grand Prix 2014″!!! I’m bummed that I can’t make it back out to Quebec to run rampant with the rest of these guys and get my ass kicked at all the play boating events like last time.

2013 Freestyle Worlds

Kayak Freestyle WorldsWell, I didn’t expect that one!! I spent the last two months at the NOC training for the Freestyle Worlds, hoping that I would at least make the first cut. I was not super consistent on my McNasty’s or Phonix Monkeys but I was hoping to make a showing.
