A new showbiz star was born this week, as our own Matt Blue of Blue Paddle was interviewed on BBC Radio 1.

The group went to the Lee Valley White Water Centre in London, where Matt showed the group just how demanding rafting actually can be. Check them out in action below kitted out with Shred Ready helmets, Palm Hydro Adventure PFD's, and Matt wearing his super durable Kokatat dry suit.
