james wrote 1220 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.

BC whitewater sumer recap 2013

tommygunn wrote 1427 days ago:


Well the year of 2013 was certainly an interesting one for the whitewater community here in southern BC.

An early start for our creeking season was a real treat with great levels on local runs brought on by high rains and warmer temps.  The crew in the Kootenays were running our classics in early April when usually the only option is playboating.  Salmo river, Slocan, Koch, and some Slocan Valley rivers were running at great levels.

Our first HTTD on Brilliant wave was a huge hit with friendly levels and a warm sunny day in May.  Most of May and June hosted BIG water on the kootenay making the Big Brilliant wave washed out but Solstice and Lucky 13 were amazing options for the thrill seeker.  Numerous high water creek runs were taking place on Koch Creek and little Slocan.
