LETTER FROM HUMLA – THE FIRST ALL NEPALI MISSION TO THE HUMLA KARNALI

FREERIDE – BACK TO THE FUTURE
Nick Troutman takes a look at the Freeride revolution and the fun to be had in playing the river. From freewheels to stern squirts, river running is back in action in a whole new way.
HERE BE DRAGONS – CREEKING IN WALES
To the outside eye, Wales may be better known for its rugged coastlines and scenic landscapes than for its wealth of whitewater, but the best kept non-secret of the UK paddling scene is that Wales offers multitudinous river adventures. Rob Litherland takes us on a whirlwind tour of paddling in Wales, from the dawn patrols and creeks of the North to some of the lesser-known classics in the South, with plenty more in-between.
INTERVIEW – DANIEL EGGER

Austria, premiered a film at the Rosenheim Film Festival, and in 2018 alone, paddled in 19 countries across Europe, Asia, and North America. We caught up with Egger to hear more about his travels and his perspective on making kayaking your life.
