Back when he worked as a canoe guide in his native Quebec, one of Pierre Pépin’s most popular courses that he offered was called “paddling without getting a divorce.” Now as Pépin and his wife, Jennifer Gosselin, prepare to wrap up a four-year, 8,800-mile canoeing odyssey across North America, the genial guide has surely achieved master’s status.

After decades without change, this year the International Canoe Federation (ICF) has introduced a new event to the slalom World Cup and World Championship program: the extreme slalom cross. Combining elements of a classic slalom race with the head-to-head, no-holds-barred style of a boater-cross featuring Eskimo rolls is what inspired the Youth Olympics race format. The extreme slalom cross attempts to infuse a more adrenaline-filled atmosphere into the traditional world of slalom.

Emma Tamsin Kelty spoke often of her ‘can-do’ hat. The expression pops up in the 43-year-old British adventurer’s correspondence with experienced Amazon paddlers who warned her about the dangers of kayaking the world’s greatest river alone and unsupported. That feat has never been accomplished for many reasons, from the difficult whitewater in the headwaters to the mind-numbing distance of more than 4,000 miles. But the biggest danger on the Amazon is not the river itself, or wild animals or disease. It’s people.

History Channel’s Alone is the toughest survival show ever – it is the real deal. It’s a self-shot show, there are no camera crews and no gimmicks. Survivalists are dropped off in separate locations with no map and minimal gear. And whoever can survive the longest goes home with a cash prize of $500,000. This past Season 4 had a crazy twist, opposed to prior seasons that featured a single person, surviving alone in a single location. This time, teams of two family members competed together, though they started separately. One person from each team was dropped off at a camp along the coast, the other was dropped 10 miles away with nothing but a compass bearing, basic camping gear, camera equipment, and no trail to follow through some of the densest forest in the world. Their job was to find their family member. Then, if and when the pairs were reunited, their challenge was to survive together, and outlast the other teams. If contestants were starving to death, injured, or they’d just had enough, they could “tap out” using a satellite messaging device, and they would be extracted by a team of search and rescue specialists.

Each and every day he inspires the lives that he touches – his paddling leaving observers amazed, while serving as a personal means for recovery and healing.

Curtis McGrath paddled to a fifth career world title at the ICF Paracanoe World Championships on August 23, exactly five years to the day after losing both his legs while on a mission for the Australian Army in Afghanistan.

“To get to do something I love is really cool and that’s because of that day,” McGrath told C&K during an exclusive interview at the championships. “It’s not a day I’ll forget, definitely one I’ll keep in my mind, but also not so significantly in a way.”

Two weeks ago, on Sept. 8, Mike Ranta hauled his canoe on a battered portage cart 23 long miles to Thunder Bay. This city in northwestern Ontario, located at the head of the St. Lawrence Seaway, was once a hub of the fur trade. Two centuries ago, weary voyageurs would summon energy for the great rendezvous—the biggest party of the season. Hardened “hivernant” paddlers who overwintered in the Canadian north met with “pork eater” crews arriving from Montreal. The trouble for Ranta, the charismatic modern day voyageur attempting his third cross-Canada canoe voyage, is that he’s arriving nearly two months late.
