Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of the TNR weekly. Last night was a special race for me. The reason being is I raced for the first time in 4 years. Now that being said just because I have not been racing doesn’t mean I wasn’t secretly training for this specific race for […]

TNR #19 Camp Howdy

Summer has been in full swing for months now, but Last night’s TNR was a hot one for all. Paddlers were seen purposely capsizing their boats and talking about how they ‘can’t wait for winter. You wait… one cold day of weather and ‘you’ll be wishing it was 30+ again. But that’s just the curse […]

Justine Curgenven – Kayaking the World!

The last time that Justine Curgenven came to speak at Deep Cove Outdoors, we had a sell out crowd for her talk on Paddling the Aleutian Islands. This talk was no different, and surprisingly, most people I talked to hadn’t seen her before, which goes to show the appeal of this formidable kayaker, adventurer and […]

Paddling Down Under

The first paddle I went on was with Mackenzie Hynard over on the Goldcoast where he lives, a spectacular […]
