One of the most noticeable things about the Australian team at the Tasmania World Cup is the presence of so many of their Mothers. These ripped guys who paddle hardcore whitewater and are hardcore practical jokers (especially Foo) hang out on the banks of the courses with their mothers. And the aforementioned Mums are very very cool indeed, incredibly supportive, and have been very very helpful to almost all of the competitors at the World Cup. If my Mum were still alive I can just imagine her playing a very similar role, screaming at me to go faster as I fudged my way down the course. So, here is to cool Mum's who support their paddling sons (and daughters)!
