The WWGP is such a great event... probably the most exciting we have in paddlesports at the moment... certainly showcases athletes in the biggest scenarios you can find. allows for the true athleticism to show through, not just well rehearsed lines/routines.
DWave, although I haven't paddled with him, nor met him, Stephen wright says the same thing and was just talking to me two days ago about him. Sounds like another great paddler coming through...
Gar, glad to hear the Karma is did well for you down there. What size did you have?
We are bringing 4 of them down to Ecuador in a couple weeks. The Karma is the first boat I have paddled in a long time that feels this different. Super unique features that are really remarkable and just seems like a game changer of a design. Super fired up to get creek'n soon!!!!
