A few more images from last weekends BUCS Slalom event at Teesside.
Quadrocopters and Hexacopters seem to be finding their way into the kayaking world. At a couple of hundred pounds (£) for a quadrocopter that is capable of aerial photography I think 2014 will see more and more of these things flying around our rivers.
Here is a great video of Marsh weir from Altitude 8.
And another showing the floods around Datchet here in the UK.
A year ago today I dislocated my shoulder on the Upper Palguin. Now, I’m back and got to make a fun video of Knox style the lines. I also got a little redemption for myself by running four laps on the first drop where I hurt myself. This video was filmed and edited completely with the iPhone 5S in a Lifeproof case.
BEAVER CREEK FALLS! This 45 foot drop located in the most NorthWest part of Oregon requires flood stage waters for it to become runnable. After the substantial amounts of snow and rain we received just days before…we decided to go check out the infamous Beaver Creek Falls. It was a…..runnable level….at best. The low water made the lip very chunky and never made for the same line twice. One ghost boat, one lost paddle, one swim, and a potential broken rib later…we were all very excited to have run this waterfall and can’t wait to go back at higher water!
