Dane Jackson – Lower Rauma

Dane Jackson takes a very stout run down the Lower Rauma.

I had grown up seeing so many videos of one of the biggest classics of Norway, the Lower Rauma. Finally getting the chance to experience it was unreal and it was everything I could have imagined, and more. I not only ended up getting the 3rd descent of Brennenfossen which is an ultra stout that Bren first descented in 2016. I also ended up deciding to run Flemmingsfossen which is one of the most intimidating drops I have done as it has a very hard lip to line up, as well as only about a 20ft window where the drop doesn’t land on rocks. It was one hell of a day and I definitely can’t wait to get back to it, although I don’t think I will be running those 2 stouts again.

The boys didn’t waste any time to get me straight into the stouts for my first day ever in Norway. We put onto the Myrkdal-selva which is one of the sickest runs, but generally done lower. Once on the water the boys made it clear it was higher than they expected, but that didn’t stop us. They just gave me beta the whole way with no scouting. After the first big sequence I was definitely gripped, but I started to get more comfortable as the day went on. It was a a hell of a first day, plenty of stout holes, and nothing but good times.

What a day on Tummy! Sam Grafton, Ben Marr, and Ben Kinsella did the Tum-flush and ran everything. They are beasts and took some stage beatings and had epic lines!

Here are some shots of myself running the Wall, Dam, Chaos, and other easier rapids. What a river, bigger rapids than the Stikine and 5 mins from downtown Derr-town. Enjoy

Flash Floods And Waterfalls In Indonesia

Flash floods and waterfalls in Indonesia

The crew flew out to Indonesia to find some waterfalls and the first one of the trip was a beauty! Had crazy levels and a flashflood in less than 24 hours, crazy to experience that and see how quickly things can change on the river. Looking forward to exploring the country more over the next few weeks! Big thanks to Eddiline kayak club for help with safety and logistics!

When Dreams come True: China Adventure with Nick Troutman

I was fortunate enough to travel to China to film a TV piece and get to run a first descent and dream waterfall of mine- the Detian Waterfalls on the boarder of China and Vietnam. It was incredible filled with cultural experiences and some epic first descent waterfalls.

The Rhondu Gorge Of The Indus

The Rhondu Gorge of the Indus

In November Dane met up with the California boys to experience a river like no other, the Rhondu gorge of the Indus. Flowing 86 miles from the valley of Skardu, it has become a river even the top kayakers of the world wonder if they feel up to the challenge. It’s got insane power flowing down steep rapids, creating huge features, making every rapid a stout after the next. It’s a river so big that the first question people get asked when they just completed the Indus, is “how many portages did you do”? Many of the worlds best kayakers often portage, usually between the 5-8 realm. This trip saw the Cali boys portage only 4 times, as well as see Dane get the lowest number of portages ever done, down to 1, by completing the first descent of the infamous Malupa rapid. It was an experience none of them will be forgetting anytime soon, and it’s just one of the places that it’s hard to believe we get to experience with our kayaks.

Juicy Home Run

Super lucky to get some juicy flow on my home river despite january’s cold temperature. This is my Home Run. The river I started kayaking on. My first strokes, my first swims, first fears, first good races, first success…It might not be the most impressive or the best whitewater in the world but it’s still very good and this place will always hold a special place in my heart.

Wailuku River – Hawaii

Wailuku River - Hawaii
Wailuku River – Hawaii

Hawaii is clearly already known for being a paradise to vacation to, and while that is definitely true. I know the Big Island of Hawaii to be home of one of the greatest rivers the in the world, the Wailuku. Located in Hilo, Hawaii, it has 2 sections that are some of the best joy sections I ever get to experience. Both sections can be down down to bare bones levels, but once it rains you can also step it up and fall off some bigger drops. I find it almost impossible to not come back every winter, and I don’t plan on stopping coming anytime soon. We got our first day of shredding at the perfect level for the bomb sections, as well as get one of the stouts. Such an epic start to the trip, and can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring!
