Let’s offer ourself 2 sweet minutes of awesome local creeking. Boats: Jackson kayak Zen and Karma.
I’ve been following the Quebec Connection for some time. The video work they have been publishing is superb. Here is their recap of the 2013 season.
2013 has been an incredible season for us. We had a LOT of fun on & off the river. A lot of ideas / projects were concretized and we just kept doing what we love. So, here is our annual season wrap up. Hope you’ll enjoy it and learn to know us a bit better! Wish you all a memorable and stout 2014 season and see ya’ll here in spring! Woooop!
This is basically a new run that was recently found, cleaned out and paddled by Shane Groves and John Moore. There are mainly slides on this run with one tricky little 8 footer. It gave myself and Josh a little trouble. It’s a really good run the bummer of the whole deal is that the water is really dirty. It is literally feed from parking lots up in Beckley and at least two water treatment plants run into the Cranberry. Wear plugs!! The Cranberry then feeds into the PIney river. This is pretty good class 3 with a maybe 3 bigger drops. Piney then feeds into the New where we took out.
Another milestone on the site. This is the 1500th post!
Many thanks for the continued support.
The Karma is currently being developed into two longer boats. The Unlimited which is a creek racer (think Dagger Green boat) and the Karma RG (Rock Garden) which is being developed primarily for sea use.
Sean Morley tests an early prototype of Jackson Kayak’s new ocean play boat the Karma RG at Point Bonita, California, 02/16/2014.
LVM (Lunch Video Magazine) was a superb outfit of paddlers publishing DVDs showing paddling exploits from around the world. Sadly LVM stopped producing videos back in 2011 or there abouts. I found this little excerpt on Vimeo in John Weld’s (Immersion Research) video library.
