Each winter, kayakers from around the world leave the cold of the northern hemisphere for the crystal clear rivers of Chile. With amazing rivers and waterfalls running from the Andes to the Pacific, the summer in Chile is paradise for kayakers. Follow along as Clay Lucas, Russell Davies, Kris Belozer, Thomas Voessing, JP Griffith, Glenn Dalgleish, and Colin Hunt travel around Chile chasing the dream of running the worlds best whitewater.
As the leaves begin to yellow and fall sets in, the rivers begin to dry here in the northwest. As our thoughts begin to travel around the world thinking of warm paddling destinations we wait for one gem in British Columbia to drop to the perfect level- Dipper Creek. A magnificent crack in the Earth located in the Squamish valley, Dipper Creek is stacked with two days of incredible whitewater, waterfalls and tight canyon walls that loom hundreds of feet above the water.
The GoPro Hero 3 and newer 3 Plus both use the same size batteries and are therefore fully compatible. The older battery is a 3.7V 1050mAh battery and the newer version has slightly more capacity at 3.7V 1180mAh. This ultimately gets more filming time.
The Dragorossi 88 is the newest creek boat from the Italian kayak company. On first seeing the 88 I was quite impressed with its overall looks – it simply looks right! So I was very excited to get the boat on onto a number of local grade IV rivers.
