Lee Valley Olympic Course

Last week I got to paddle the new Lee Valley whitewater course for the first time with the rest of the squarerock team as well as freestyle legend Eric Jackson.

I’d heard how clean the water was before going but didn’t release how nice paddling clean water that you could see the bottom in would be.

The Olympic course was really tiring with constant whitewater and fast eddy’s. There are a few good drops with fairly chunky holes at the bottom of them. There was lots of carnage at one particular drop as everyone tried to play on a wave directly behind the drops big hole that was also being played on. Under its current setup there weren’t many good playspots but it was definitely a lot of fun.
