Sponsors - Gear We Use and Trust


A sponsor since 2014 and we're happy with the decision to move to LL. After touring North America this summer with a Remix 79, paddling everything from the Middle Kings to the Stikine and the boat is still going strong. This is a progressive company that continue to push the sport of whitewater kayaking are we're glad to be apart of such a supporting company. I've got a Flying Squirrel out back and im fired up to see what it can do!

Barny and I are both stoked to be ambassadors for the best dry gear on the market. Kokatat has always made the best gear and continue do to just that. As Barny puts it, "Forget the rest, and get the BEST". Made in the white-water mecca of California, from the the finest materials... this is definitely the gear we want to use when throwing ourselves out into testing environments.

One of our newest sponsors, Earth Sea Sky are a genuine bunch of outdoor enthusiasts who make proven outdoor gear. A large part of kayaking is spent off the river, traveling, scouting, accessing and just generally being on the move and we're greatful to have the support of Earth Sea Sky for taking care of our clothing requirements in testing environments. New Zealand made, so you know its good, and down to earth. Two things we can appreciate and definitely support.

Snapdragon are legit. Simple. The guys are Snapdragon are down-to-earth, passionate and real people. They stand by their product, and why wouldn't you when you produce the best spary-decks available. We rock the Whitewater Amortex EXP, its built to last, keeps you dry and has the extra security of the implosion bar. Everything you need.

Much like all the companies we endorse, Watershed Drybags are another company that haven't compromised quality for profits. Anyone in the whitewater world will tell you the quality of these bags and we whole-heartedly support and promote Watershed. There is no other dry-bag company that even comes close to competing. Not just our preference, but truly the best bags in the world.
