Kaweah

Kaweah

The Panther section of the Kaweah, located just upstream of the Hospital Rock section is one of the best day runs in Cali. It’s about a 3 mile hike up but then once you are on the water it’s a few hours of sick boulder gardens, and tons of boofs and slides. By far one of my favorite day runs out there, and I highly recommend getting it if you ever have the chance!

West Cherry – Day 1

West Cherry - Day 1
West Cherry – Day 1

One of the greatest runs in the world without a doubt is West Cherry in California. It not only has one of the most famous big slides, Graceland. But it also has so much epic whitewater and the most amazing scenery. Since Michael Ferraro and myself were going to be the first people into the ultra classic this year, we decided to do a one day. The reason being is to keep our boats lighter incase water levels were higher than we expected. Once we finally got to the river after the hike it ended up being high water, but nothing we couldn’t handle. It ended up being a huge day of hiking, kayaking, and just enjoying one of the greatest places to go with a boat.

Undeniably the most beautiful river in France. If the classic sections offer easy recreational kayaking, the canyon actually has some really good whitewater. I recommend going with someone that knows the run or take it slow since this section is full of Siphon. Thanks Max for showing me the lines !

Apologies for the lack of stoke in this video but it is so frustrating when decisions like this are made by people with no knowledge of whitewater kayaking.

Paddling In Kenya

Kenya is a hidden jewel in the crown of Africa. Not many people will think of Kenya as a kayaking destination, rather attention is drawn to the waves in Uganda. However, Kenya has some of the most amazing rivers to offer! From day creeking to multi-day trips where the wildlife proves you are not the top of the food chain.
