Ottawa Valley ... Love

Finally back on the Ottawa River ! After spending the past year and a half traveling back and forth from New Zealand, Quebec and California, hitting up all the amazing steep creeking these places have to offer, I must admit I was stoked to get back to my home waters of the Ottawa. There is something to be said about floating down big, warm water not worring about the next eddy you need to catch, which is in stark contrast to most steep creeking. Plus it has been great re-learning how to make my kayak fly.

The Ottawa Valley ... it's just one of those places, a perfect mixture of endless, all-time kayaking and great friends. Enjoy a few pics from my first week back on Garb.

Marcos with a beaut of a back pan-am

  Yep re-learning to fly high

Tyler with the beginnings of a nice clean blunt

So fresh and so clean

 Flash back ... for sure, its been a couple years since I've been on this wave.

Had my biggest (probably only) fan out to cheer me on

Tired of cheering, Lu decides to get on the wave and throw down

Getting the Flash backs to come around

Tino poping some nice air off the left shoulder

Just wanted to say a big thanks to:
Wave Sport for the shiney new Project X 56, nothing like a fresh hull on a fast wave ... POP.
Level Six for keeping me dry in my comfy Chocee shorty and Play skirt combo ... Pimp
H2O Paddles for the great stick, I love play boating with my H2O Team paddle ... Power

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the few photos. I am off to Big Joe right now at the Lachine Rapids in Montreal for some more epic wave riding, so stay tuned for some more photos.
Ohh yeah and I might even get all my spring time Cali photos back soon ... fingers crossed.
