    I've installed two 1200 gal/hour pumps. They run on a 1.4 Ah sealed lead acid battery (no need for waterproofing). A single battery lasts about 1.5 hrs at Penrith Whitewater, but a day or two on a...

    I’ve been paddling the Spark a lot more lately, and it’s a lovely boat. Much faster than the L’Edge, my other OC1. At first I found it long on the narrow Penrith Whitewater course, but I can pull it...

    Oops, that one has airbags, and the boat is 14 ft. See other videos here, including surfing a 16ft in the ocean: http://www.youtube.com/user/hashticles/videos

    Tips for an intermediate surfer?

    As y'all know, it's summer in Australia, so I've been putting in the hours at Penrith Whitewater Stadium, practicing my surfing. I've put together some clips, and appreciate any constructive...

    By "connectivity", are you referring to how snug a canoeist is in his outfitting? If so, the connectivity can be very high.

    I think the better canoeists use a similar technique to kayakers when...

    Good observation and questions, JimW.

    In that vid, the bow was higher than without the boof (the stroke at the lip, and the hip-thrust). Now some critique. Because The Waterfall on the Mitta is...
  13. [Video] Boofing The Waterfall, Mitta Mitta River, Australia

    Here's footage from the Mitta Mitta (Victoria, Australia), AFTER I broke my rib swimming a rapid several hours earlier.

  14. Corrosion

    I've seen others run similarly exposed setups to mine, but I don't truly know the long term corrosion likelihood. My plan is to be able to air dry all bits (by pulling the battery out, and pulling...

  16. [Video] Bilge pump installation in an open canoe

    I just installed an electric bilge pump in my Esquif L'Edge, and made a short video, hopefully to help others understand the basics.

    If you paddle whitewater, especially tight, technical sections...

    I'd love to hear the results of this experiment. By the way, why are you considering making it swede form?

    My standard seat was too far forward for my j-stroking, when I got mine. I ended up...

    Shallow arches v. V-bottoms

    I noticed those two terms, too, and concluded that MR uses them interchangeably.

    Esquif L'Edge: mini review

    Because there is no facility to review the Esquif L'Edge in the Canoe and Paddle Reviews section, I thought I would post here.

    Here's some footage of a Freedom Solo in whitewater. The other canoes in this are Legend 16s. The Solos tend to take on a bit of water, but they're fun & light.

    Poling in the MR Guide (Freedom Solo) is certainly more difficult than a wider boat, but it's certainly possible. Twenty-or-so kilograms of gear provides some added stability.

    The only thing that would have made the trip better (more perfect?) is more water to save a lot of scraping; and perhaps a helicopter to drop us upstream, so we didn't have to push against the flow!

    I've just posted a new thread with a link to a longer video of this 4-day trip. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!
  25. [Video]: 4-day trip on the Colo River, Australia (7-min edit)

    I've had some more time to edit down the footage from our 4-day trip. The GoPro, mounted on the bow, captures both boats on the water very nicely, and also captures the gorge scenery well.
