No sweet boof this time but getting closer Travis!

Newbie Jordan hols an edge to keep from a flip in the rocky shallow water of Burleigh!

Week 1 of the KWP Fun Run Series kicked off last Thursday night with a great turnout of 15 paddlers despite the lowish water conditions. One of the great  things about the Fun Run’s location is the variety of river features, which provide lots of opportunity for honing various skills. Thursday night’s level meant that a pretty much perfect rock flake for boofing came into play on the main drop. As anyone who has tried to improve their boofing technique knows, it takes considerable proactive to nail the right form and this feature is perfect for that. Quick turnaround this week, next Fun Run on our rotating weekly Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday schedule is Tuesday, June 21st at Burleigh Falls, located about 30 minutes north of Peterborough on highway 28. Come on out anytime after 5:30 and join in the fun – here’s hoping for more water!

POZA AZUL Extreme Race COSTA RICA 2014

james wrote 1428 days ago:


This year the Poza Azul Extreme Race took place on Saturday November 22nd with 24 participants from all over Costa Rica, the USA, Canada, Austria, Ecuador, Peru, and Mexico!

The Poza Azul River runs over volcanic bedrock originating in the Braullio Carrillo National Park and feeding the Sarapiqui River. The Poza Azul Extreme Race is a Master Level race consisting of 800 meters down river, timed racing, through two class IV slide rapids to finish at a 10 meter waterfall with a very technical line to the finish point. This waterfall is a classic drop in Costa Rica and offers lots of surprises for its competitors.

The winner of this years Poza Azul Extreme Race is Diego Solano (aka Pina) won the flight to Mexico where he will be representing Costa Rica in the renowned Alseseca Race this January 10th, 2015. Antonio and Sofia from Aventurec (home base for the Alseseca competition) are supporting this years champion with free lodging and a kayak loan during his stay.

Check out the oficial website for the Sarapiqui River Festival to mark your calendar with next years dates!
