It’s no secret that kayaking is a mental game. I’ve watched solid kayakers walk off rivers well within their ability level and I’ve also witnessed some scary near misses from people who overestimate their skills. I used to really struggle with my confidence; always...

Home Sweet Home

Well that was a whirlwind of a few months! When I got back to the UK before Christmas I was worried I was going to get bored being home for so long. Thankfully that was not the case and instead I feel like I need a holiday to recover! I’ve had a great time travelling...

NSR and Galway Fest

This year, for the first time since I can remember, the National Student Rodeo and Galway Fest were organised to be on different weekends, which meant I had no excuse to not attend both. Galway Fest’s reputation precedes itself, with a rumour of one year someone...

Umngi River

In October 2016, a team of 8 kayakers from the UK headed in to complete the first full descent of the Umngi river in Meghalaya. The team consisted of Callum Strong, Joe Rea-Dickens, Will Chick, Rowan James, Sam Dixon, Chris Griffiths, Gus...

The Most Underrated Kayaking Destination?

In June I started my Indian travels in Uttarakhand and I think it is the most underrated kayaking destination I have ever been to. It is super convenient; straight off the flight in Delhi we got a 6 hour taxi to Rishikesh, which is an ideal base for your trip, and you...

Racing Round the Indian Sub-Continent

In my 6 months travelling the Indian sub-continent I entered 3 awesome kayaking events – the Malabar River Festival, MeghaKayakFest and the Himalayan Whitewater Challenge. Each one was challenging, fun and highly recommended! Read up on my experiences and results here.
