Om Shanti

Well guys and girls, it has been a long time since the blog was updated and I have no one to blame but myself. What has been going on I hear you cry.

Over the last few months we have been busy trying to secure assistance for a great project set up to support girls kayaking in Nepal. The project was established a few years ago by my good friend Inka from Sweden and is developing well. From Flat Water to Swift Water the girls are doing well.

It has been great that kayaking companies have been jumping to help out the Himalayan River Girls, this is a great club set up to help females or Nepal escape the rural family life, the caste system and all the oppression that surrounds the patriarchal ideology. Nookie Kayaking gear, have been brilliant and have supplied pfds, cags, decks, rash vest etc both for the club and as prizes and Square Rock, have supplied a Jackson kayak as the prize for the Himalayan rodeo all is looking brilliant.

The girls have been doing well and are now working in the river. The Nepal season has been a blast and the learning curve is amazing.

This is a short update as we have just got off the Sun Kosi river, a great wilderness kayaking trip in the heart of Nepal. I will be adding a report about this later along with some images.
