joining forces for free flowing rivers

Among the many new innovations this year at PADDLEexpo, a creative design of a new kind was revealed. Fresh off their own river conservation campaigns, Berni Steidl (of WET - Wildwasser Erhalten Tirol) and Rok Rozman (of the Balkan Rivers Tour) took the stage to unveil a new river conservation initiative that was born just weeks prior to the expo. The Free Rivers Fund (FRF) is based on a vision of uniting the paddlesports industry with the river conservation community. Rozman, Steidl and Dan Yates (Save the Conwy) met at a conservation conference and realized—while sharing their successes and struggles—that they were stronger together. The trio agree that protecting rivers is a full-time job and that a lack of funding was coming into play for all of them. “Activists can achieve nothing…

world white water news

NEWS AND HAPPENINGS FREE RIVERS FUND – NEW INTERNATIONAL RIVER CONSERVATION INITIATIVE A new river conservation initiative was officially launched at PADDLEexpo this October. European kayakers Bernhard Steidl (WET), Dan Yates (Save the Conwy River) and Rok Rozman (Balkan Rivers Tour) have come together to create the “Free Rivers Fund”, a collective that aims to connect whitewater brands and community members in support of free flowing rivers around the world. Steidl and Rozman presented the idea at the Expo and the response from brands at the show was amazing, with more than 15 well-known brands committing to the initiative and showing interest in investing in the fund.

mini itv ben dooley - oosshh.com

Why Oosshh? What does it stand for? We came up with the idea for Oosshh before we had decided on a name but we knew we wanted to call it something different. A name that people would use to describe what they did; a name that could become part of a paddler’s descriptive dictionary. ‘Oosshh’ is the sound you make when you push yourself in the water, the sound you make when you drop off a waterfall, when you make that tackle in polo, or when you push over that finish line in a race. What are the features of Oosshh and how will the app help whitewater kayakers? Imagine this scenario.Your club or team is going on a river trip.You need to plan the location, know who is attending, and collect money.…

learning to fall iceland

THIS IS A LAND OF FIRE, DUST, ROCK AND WATER. GIGANTIC GLACIERS SIT ON MASSIVE VOLCANOES. RIVERS FLOW THROUGH LARGE, RUGGED VALLEYS AND BROAD LAVA FIELDS BEFORE DESCENDING INTO IMPRESSIVE WATERFALLS AND TIGHT GORGES. THIS IS ICELAND. AND IT REALLY IS AS MYSTICAL AS IT SOUNDS. BUT A LANDSCAPE THIS SUPERNATURAL TAKES TIMES TO FULLY ABSORB. ICELAND IS A PLACE WHERE AFTER 20 DAYS AND 14 RIVERS, FIVE FRIENDS STILL HAD DIFFICULTLY TRYING TO FULLY MEASURE THE SCALE AND PERSPECTIVES OF THE ISLAND. On June 30th 2016, a group of five kayakers from vastly different backgrounds, lifestyles, and paddling abilities landed in Iceland - the waterfall paradise - with one question: ‘Can we do this?’ The crew was led by experienced kayakers Stephane Pion and Mathieu Coldebella, but organized by filmmaker…

interview egor voskoboynikov

KS: How did you end up in a kayak? EV: You could say I’m from a whitewater family. My grandparents did some paddling trips on lakes with my father when he was a kid and when my dad was in university he started to do whitewater trips with the tourism club. He met my mother in this club and they did some trips together. I started kayaking when I was a kid. We did many trips as a family, with my brothers and sister. My first paddling trip was a weekend flatwater trip in my father’s handmade baydarka (kayak) when I was two years old. KS: So kayaking is a family affair. Were your parents involved in the early whitewater scene in Russia? EV: My father was one of the pioneers of whitewater…

georgian gold kayaking the crossroads of europe and asia

Landing in Tibilisi, the capital of Georgia, the Boeing 737 bounces well off the runway several times before solidly connecting with the ground. David Sodomka (CZ), Jan Lásko (CZ), Eva Lásko (SVK), Jan Kolář (CZ), and Tom Andrassy (SVK) look at each other, wide-eyed. The jerky, unorthodox landing is their first introduction to Georgia, and they hope it is not an indication of how their whitewater adventure will unfold over the next two weeks. Standing in front of the baggage carousel,the Czech and Slovakian kayakers feel welcomed to the country as Georgians ask questions about kayaking or quietly stare at the bright plastic boats and piles of gear. Heading outside into the chaos of taxis and crowds, Sodomka spots a solitary figure, standing still as a statue. Through the throng of…
