Magic Corse

corse13 10

“Corsica is an amazing place” I used to hear all the time fromm my mates. It took me until two years ago to get here and see it for myself. The mediterean island with pitoresque medieval towns, amazing cheese and salami becomes a whitewater creeking paradise for a few weeks in April almost every year. During the last two seasons there had not been much snow on the island and so the rivers were pretty dry. I heard many of my friends complaining about no water and felt like this is becoming a stereotype of Corse. DIFFERENT STORY THIS YEAR! A… more

jakub0

I  am not exactly sure where to start. 2012 was one of the busiest and at the same time amazing years I remember. I will try to catch a bit of the atmosphere here. Stage 1- South America New Years Eve day 2012 has caught me in the plane landing on the Santiago Airport shortly, where   I met David Ernst and Flo Petry on their Boundless trip around the world.  After crazy New Years eve celebration I headed south to guide the Gene17 trip  in Pucon for couple weeks. The trip was great and we paddled most of the classics… more

Director review

director1 test

New boat from ZET kayaks is available and therefore we decided to test it and compare it with older ZET Raptor. Due to weather and opportunities we compared these kayaks on white water slalom course in Prague – TROJA.  We tested the boats for three days and here are some of our observations: test it by Tomo and Palo Andrassy Dlho očakávaná novinka od firmy ZET kayaks je už na svete a tak sme sa ju aj my rozhodli odskúšať a porovnať s jej starším bratom RAPTOROM.  Vzhľadom na počasie a naše možnosti sme spomínané kajaky porovnávali na umelej vodáckej dráhe v Prahe  - TRÓJI.

Kayaking through Patagonia

Palguin Chile

This winter was my third in a row I managed to travel with my kayak through one of the most beautiful countries in the world - Chile. I only had a window of four weeks this time but nevertheless I still got to see new rivers and got some of the best classics done. Having little trouble getting our rental car our little group of four Germans with "Los tres hermanos” Motz and me made it out of Santiago late on the first evening and headed straight to the Teno valley. Coming from cold and nasty Europe we got Chile at… more

Teva Mountain Games in Vail and Eporedia Active Days in Italy

uvodni_anne

TMG by Anne Huebner I left Innsbruck end of May heading to Munich Airport and taking off to Vail, Colorado. First stop was the 2012 Teva Mountain Games in Vail. First race was the Steep Creek competition on Homestake. I had a alright first run but got pretty nervous in my second run, flipped, had to roll and finally ended in third position behind TEVAs Martina Wegman (NED) and Louise Jull (NZL). Due to the low water levels the Freestyle hole in town was shallow and tricky. Interesting to watch how team TEVAs current world champion Claire O´Hara (UK) was ripping the… more

New Zealand

NZ 2012 by Palo AndrassyI decided to spend last winter in New Zealand. On the beginning of November I flew to Auckland and I spent next three months on North Island.  I had been mainly on Kaituna river which was quite high all the time due to sustained rain. Actually the flow was few times higher than allowed limit for rafting during January so the river belonged only to kayakers and we had lots of fun there. Few days before Christmas nice event was held here – Kaituna Xmas day. This event consisted of many competitions; the most fun of them was swimming… more
