African Waves

The river that will soon be lost

Stunning view over the river

Its not long until these incredible waves will be lost forever with the building of the new Nile river dam. For now its time to enjoy them whilst they last.

Here is an epic video edited by Jez with all the highlights from my latest training adventure to the White Nile and collection of my favourite photos from the trip.

'This video features 7x World Champion, Freestyle Kayaker Claire O'Hara tearing it up on Nile Special and Club Wave, two of the World Class waves that will be lost with the building of the new dam. It also includes some incredible African Wildlife shot on Safari in Murchison National Park and behind the scenes at the Entebbe Wildlife Education Centre.'

A fantastic video showcasing highlights of the life of a whitewater kayaker training in Uganda. Shot on location in Africa during the ASP World of Champions Freestyle Training Camp. Then edited in Australia by Jez

Thanks to Dennis Newton Sweet Water Coaching and Andrew 'Jacko' Jackson for all the coaching and support during the trip.

2015… Its all about the waves

Whilst I work through and start editing the footage from Uganda check out the video I put together after my last trip to New Zealand.

I'm loving wave boating at the moment and am super stoked with the progress I have made over the last  year.

Heres my 2015 NZ highlights reel

Massive thanks to Dennis Newton and Sweetwater Coaching as always for teaching me these epic tricks and Jez Jezz for my awesome new camera to capture it all on.

It was an awesome day of on stop adventures around Sydney with some incredible athletes from some amazing sports and adventures. Here's to living alcohol and drug free, promoting an active and healthy lifestyle and living everyday to the max.

World Champions, athletes and adventures promoting a drug free lifestyle. The Big Adventure Day is about completing as many adventures in one day, from sun up to sunset with the help of some amazing athletes and businesses to promote a healthy, adventurous life.
