London Boatshow Display & Bren Orton Interview

This last week we’ve been paddling hard on flatwater….It is for good reason though 🙂 We’re at the London Boatshow at the Excel Centre.

Myself, Bren Orton, Claire O’hara, Mallory Franklin, Anton Lippek, & David Bain are putting on twice daily shows of freestyle & slalom on the watersports pool commentated by Ed Smith & Christian Stevenson along with our little video clips on the big screen.

Pretty weird surrounded by all these big yachts to be in a 1m deep pool showing off freestyle!

This year we don’t get to use the ramps & cable tow set up like last year but we have been doing daily talks on whitewater, freestyle & slalom to give the visitors the opportunity to fins out more on our sport, how they can get started and where it could take them.

Here is a clip from last years show by Bren:-

With 4 days left of the show we’re putting together some video interviews & other bits to check out daily, yesterday we shot Bren’s one, hold out until the end to see the outtakes….

If you want to check out the display we’re on at 12:15 & 15:00 daily until the show finishes on Sunday 15th of Jan.

Anyway enough talking, here are some photos from around the show and a walk around Londons sights.


P.S. Big Thank you to Rob Harris for organising the whole thing 🙂
