You forgot the “ab”. You’re abusing the “tools at your disposal” and disrespecting the democratic institution that is our judicial system. Wise leaders seek consensus, not abuse their power.

Some pre-paddle entertainment down at the river this morning as this young fox spent about 15 minutes trying to get a goose breakfast. Unlucky for him the geese would have none of it. Always something going on in

Free 2 week trial to Paddle Monster to the first person who can tell me what kind of board (brand, year, length and width) that I’m riding in this photo. Non-Paddle Monster subscribers only please.

Great day of racing at OABI in Detroit this past weekend. Stoked to take the win and grab the “Black Blade” for the 3rd year in a row. Thanks to all those who worked so hard to stage such a great event!

Though I hate what does to the do I ever respect the man. More even than as the incredible athlete, as a person. The world, and particularly it seems right now America, need more people like this. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Passed 2000km for the year this am. Conservative estimate of 2500km paddled/year times 42 years of paddling since 1976 means I’ve paddled well over 100,000 km lifetime or more than 2.6 x around the earth at the equator. Still love paddling as much as ever!

Nothing like a nighttime view of the city from the island. Like any big city it’s got its issues but god I’m thankful I live in this city’s shadow instead of somewhere else.

Nothing like mixing things up for a change. Nice to get a different perspective of Lake Ontario from a sailboat instead of a SUP. Still...wish I coulda been on my board to chase those bumps....

Sorry to see leave Toronto. Class act and I love people who love our city. Rumour going around Kawhi Leonard doesn’t want to play in T.O. Surely Ujuri must have consulted him or his agent before pulling the trigger on the deal?

Cheers, Steve. We get along real well with your Marine Unit and enjoy sharing the water with them. It’s always nice to see familiar faces out on tha lake!

Stoked to run into our friends at the Marine Unit today and check out their ride. We see them on the water daily and they know we’re all about safety first and responsible decisions. Building trust makes everyone’s job easier and day more enjoyable.

I read a lot of Cold War/conspiracy/spy/Armageddon novels with some pretty wild plots in the 80s, none of which seem as far fetched as what we’re living and saw from Trump today. America is fucked. We’re all fucked. I’m seriously worried about where this all ends.

Sharing a moment after a hot summer session with old friend and coach from 1978 to 88, Jim Reardon, who has been getting out on his ski. Far more than the racing or the results, paddling has always been about the health and fitness, the fun and the friendships.

I hope I’m feeling like I’m 25 when I’m 70....

Worth reading the attached link if you’re an American wondering why we Canadians are miffed about the recent behaviour of your President towards us.
