Devil’s Canyon of the Susitna River, Alaska

Scouting Devil’s Creek Rapid was one of the more intensive scouts I have ever been a part of. There is no one place you can see the entire rapid, but as we made our way downstream along the left bank, watching the previously wide Susitna begin to choke down all 26,300 CFS, you knew something significant was happening around the corner.


Video: High Water Raven Fork in the 9R

Like so many others out there, the 9r has quickly become my favorite kayak of all time.  I have had a lot of fun taking it on harder and harder whitewater, and it performs beautifully, from class II to class V+!  Here is a quick gopro edit of a sweet weekend on the Raven Fork …

Pyranha 9r – Fast is Fun on the Tallulah Gorge

I am fired up on this new boat! Going fast and linking up moves is one of my favorite ways to kayak and the 9r makes it that much better. The 9r is the highest performance, most progressive kayak design ever made, and if you need some proof just take a look at the rocker …

Video: Cispus River, Washington

The Cispus River is a little piece of paradise tucked away in a remote gorge in the mysterious, magical, sasquatch infested forests between Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier. While a trip to this river is easily done in an afternoon, one does not go to the Cispus on a schedule, resulting in a phenomenon known …

While Ecuador …

Lower Lewis Falls Huck Session, WA

Lower Lewis falls is a sweet park and huck 40 footer I had been wanting to run all summer, but had not worked out until it dropped out. Luckily we had some early fall rain, bringing it back into a prime level for a day. Chris Stafford and Chris Morelli were easy to rally to …
