The best of Australian kayaking talent

Wild weather, torrential rain, incessant rain, flooding, mini tornados what else could you ask for.. right?

Right! Wrong, no I mean right!

Anyone in their right mind would be utterly devastated with their house flooding or roof coming off. But this moment is what I and seven handfuls of crazy kayakers have been waiting for. Rivers peaking, roads cut, two Australian national competitions and Monsoon Madness White Water Festival coming this weekend in Cairns.

Best of Australian talent, testing their skills against forces of Mother Nature at her toughest.


  • Sat 24th – AJ Hackett Big Gorge Shoot Out at Crystal Cascades
  • Sun 25th – Australian National Freestyle Titles on the Barron River

Guess who’s going to be there?

Extreme Photography with bells on!

It’s not all about capturing adrenaline pumping, sphincter clenching action. That is only part of the story. Documenting the preparation required, equipment setup, friendships formed and tough training involved to reach the pinnacle of competition.

These are the images that will be available online starting next week.
I’d hate to see these images go to waste.
So what’s your plan?
