Feather Fest 2013

Another great video from friend of Unsponsored – Shon Bollock.

The third weekend of September is one of the largest kayaking events in California. Late season releases established by American Whitewater have provided the venue and river that set the stage for a weekend of good times. The North Fork Feather race is a great section of white water with many fun boofs and a great run to lap as many times as desired.

I had raced the Tobin section for the past 7 years but this year I really wanted to capture some aerial cinematography with my DJI Phantom. Props to everyone that raced and came out to support an amazing event this year and much gratitude to AW for all their work to make it happend. Apologies for the jello in some shots, I have since got a H3-2D gimbal so you can expect much smoother shots in the near future.

Enjoy the 100% GoPro Hero3+ edit and hope everyone is stoked on the changing seasons!

I Wouldn’t Swim There If I Were You

Another great piece and sound advice from Unsponsored friend Liam Chambers.

I wouldn’t swim there if I were you. from Liam Chambers on Vimeo.

Awkward series of roll attempts lead to a swim on the Aberglaslyn Gorge. Resulting in ending up in an undercut rock at the side of “Leg breaker”. This is where safety and rescue courses and practising using those skills becomes real.
