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.

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!

Demshitz On West Virginia’s Cranberry Creek

Demshitz on West Virginia’s Cranberry Creek from David Fusilli on Vimeo.

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.

Carnage On Stock Ghyll

Matthew Carey and Vin Baker check out Stock Ghyll here in the UK. Good water levels a good level carnage. Happily all paddlers are safe and well. Enjoy.

LVM States Series – Idaho!

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.
