Latest issue of Rapid Media TV was just released on YouTube and this episode focuses on the National Sea Kayak Symposium which took place about a month ago. I have a short bit towards the end babbling about flares. Look for cameos from James from, Scott from 1000 Islands Kayak Company and my daughter "crazy legs" ripping it up on the dance floor at about the 6:00 mark.
Priscilla Haskin organized a highly successful recertification clinic in Alberta and she sent in this quick update.

New P&H Cetus LV

This weekend was a very busy weekend for me. Up here in Canada, it was a long weekend as we celebrate the Queen’s birthday by not going to work.On Sunday I drove up to Parry Sound to visit the annual White Squall Open House. As usual, the day was filled with clinics and general mayhem. Erik Ogaard and I taught a session about fooling around in your boat which was basically just a group of us challenging each other to the craziest possible trick like sitting cross legged on the front deck or crawling up and kissing your bow. It was a very good example of high class instruction if you ever needed one.
These paddling photos make me want to drop everything and jump in a boat now.Image: Canoe Dock at Moraine Lake, a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivative-Works (2.0) image from 9422878@N08's photostream
