Unleash was introduced to Tim through Steve Randall, from Team Unleash. Tim paddled with Steve in the Avon Decent this year in the K2 division. Both Tim and Steve are heading off to South Africa to compete in the Fish River Marathon. Tim's focus is Downwind Ocean Racing, Flatwater Marathons and Whitewater Marathons. Unleash has brought Tim on board because of his immense love for paddling and competing. At 61 Tim is not affraid to take on challenges that most his age would hide form and teaming up with Steve, who is 22 years his junior shows that he still has what it takes.We're looking forward to supporting Tim in his upcoming quests.

Go to the Fish Marathon site and have a look at the photo gallery and have a look at what Tim and Steve is getting themselves into. The Fish Marathon is a legendary race in South Africa and over the years i have heard of rapids that swallow K2 boats and when they spit them out, that is if they decide to, the paddlers get a little reality check. That is if they can remember where they are!!
