TEAM >TEAM PYRANHA USA & CANADA
Location: Bridgeport, CA - Banks of the South Yuba River!
BIO:After returning home from Fallujah, Iraq, I was then honourably discharged from the U.S. Marines. Since, I've taken back to the rivers where I currently seek out my favourite style of white-water kayaking: expedition boating.
The lure of dropping into a thundering canyon with a solid team of boaters has taking me around the world, paddling some of the finest (and scariest) whitewater out there. I've recently bought a house on the banks of the South Yuba River here in California where afternoon laps on some of the most quality whitewater in the west, is the norm! From here, skills stay sharp and search is always on...
Current Missions: (As of Summer 2012) - California has wrapped up but thankfully there are sweet Class V and V+ releases to look forward to throughout the fall. Cherry Creek and Gnarfest races are in order as well as missions north into British Columbia.... As for long range, I can hint to it: Island 1st D's!
Boats: L Shiva - The Shiva has become my new "go to" boat out here in Cali! When it comes down to creeking and soft (predictable) landings, the Shiva shines.
L Burn - The classic and for those big water days. Lay 'er on edge and drive!
Everest - Packed full and still riding high! Love it on "even bigger" water days.
L Karnali - Speedy speedy. Snappy rolls and the quick hull for extreme creek races.
L Ammo - Gone, but not forgotten! Still got one and use it on low water and for flying boofs!
