This photo of Char­lie Nguyen (above) of France was taken at the Adi­das Sick­line Ex­treme Kayak World Cham­pi­onships at Oet­z­tal, Tirol, Aus­tria on Oc­to­ber 06 and we loved how it cap­tured his emo­tions. The event, held every Oc­to­ber for the past ten years, sees pad­dlers com­pete for the cov­eted world ti­tle. A "sick line" is the per­fect, smoothest and fastest line down­river, and that's what com­peti­tors have to find. New Zealand has been the dom­i­nat­ing na­tion for the past 10 years. Kiwi Sam Sut­ton (pic­tured right) took out the top hon­ours this year and is re­spon­si­ble for over half of the Kiwi medal haul over the past ten years!
