New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are found in the northeastern part of North America and best know to the rest of the world for it’s quaint fishing villages that supply some of the best seafood in the world. The gently rolling hills inland with thier sparse populations have hidden a treasure trove of whitewater paddling that has just begun to be explored. In fact there are some great creeks for the hardcore paddler as well as lots of class II/III rivers with super fun park and play spots. The season starts late in the fall and continues right through the winter for those willing to paddle in the cold and into the spring. There are only a few spots available in the summer with the best being the Reversing Falls of the Saint John River in New Brunswick. Nova Scotia also has some amazing surf all along it’s coast with waves up to 10 meters in hurricane and the post tropical storms between July and November which helps bridge the summer river lows and occasionally bring enough rain for short lived summer paddling.

Movie Premiere a great success!

The Green Race Movie and NOTLD help raise money for Medway River Kayakers’ Barn Nova Scotian paddlers were entertained by the silly antics of local kayaker Kelsey Thompson and many others like WKs Colin Kemp ripping it up on waves and creeks around the world in Spencer Cookes Night of the Living Donkey and the Green Race Movie. Plus we raised about $600 with an auction led by Dustin Barker to help keep the paddlers barn on the Medway river going strong, all in spite of more bad weather! We had freezing rain that knocked out the power to the grid next store but we still had a good sized and very generous crowd.
