Norway has been on my top 5 countries to visit for a long time so I was pleased to discover that I could go paddling there (at least in my head) without the uncomfortable plane ride.

The gang from World Wild Adventure recently put this video together:

Bubble Street LogoI got to tell you, Paul Mason’s Bubble Street whitewater simulator looks like a complete blast and I can be confident to say that it would probably become even more fun the more you drank.

As you can see by the video below all you need to do is to take a long wooden chute with obstacles strategically placed throughout to replicate a whitewater course. Then turn on the high volume water pump and throw in the foam boats. Finally add some alcohol to your bloodstream and you got the recipe for a solid evening of entertainment.

If you are going to the Gull River Open Boat Slalom Race taking place September 11 then take some photos and let us know who crashed and burned on the Bubble Street.

Canoe & Kayak Magazine LogoCanoe & Kayak Magazine recently published two quick instructional videos featuring Shawna Franklin and Leon Somme, who are both amazing instructors and owners of the paddling school, Body Boat Blade International.

The two clips are produced by Bryan Smith and you can tell is unique and professional style immediately. Both videos are exactly as instructional videos should be, short and straight to the point with no wasted words.

Video: NYC Inner City Kids Kayak Camp

Nick Troutman recently posted a video of him and Emily Jackson working with the Upward Bound program is past summer.

Here is the description on Vimeo:
Every year Soft Power Health teams up with the Upward Bound program from Boys and Girls Harbor. We take these kids, some not even knowing how to swim, and we teach them how to kayak. We start with getting comfortable being in the water in a pool, then move to a Long Island beach and bay, and finally ending with two different river runs. Here is the group from 2010.

According to this video put together by famed paddler, Paul Mason, there is no reason in the world why you should paddle anything but a Werner Paddle.

Between you and me, I kinda believe him….

Doug AldersonAuthor, Doug Alderson recently uploaded two really cool videos which are posted below. The first one is a quick lesson on the super practical Highwayman's Hitch knot.  The Highwayman's Hitch is a fantastic quick release knot with a whole pile of uses. The best one being that you can use it to make a quick tow line without requiring clips or buckles. With a little practice a basic piece of floating line can be set up to provide a secure towline that can quickly be released from both ends.
