Things Can Get Rowdy Out There

Things Can Get Rowdy Out There

The Green is special in itself but 200% is up there with one of the best days on the water. Anything up to 21-22″ the run is nothing but joy to bomb down. But once you move past around the 22″ mark things start to escalate quickly and every inch starts to add a lot of water in that steep section. Most of the run continues to be as glorious as ever, but Gorilla into the slides start to become absolutely stout. I made a pit stop headed elsewhere at the put in exit for the Green, which turned out to be the best decision ever, cause I woke up to a ton of rain. Not only was the Green back at epic flows, but Big Hungry creek was flowing in giving the perfect combo. Matt Anger picked up the call, and it was just another rowdy, but glorious lap!

El Rio Claro

El Rio Claro

Outside of Molina, Chile, lies one of the most incredible places to experience. The rio Claro is a river that you can only truly appreciate its glory, and many sections are only possible to access, by kayaking it. It is about as narrow, and committing as kayaking gets. It is one of my favorite runs in the world, and by far one of the most beautiful. The chrystal clear water, the towering overhanging walls of the gorge, and the endless drops. It is a place like one other, and I am always counting down the days till I can drop back in.

Remember the river we cleaned the lines up on by cutting out the trees so it would be in prime condition when the high water came? The highwater is here and the river is amazing. It’s named the Venter Ache for anyone wondering.

I had grown up seeing so many videos of one of the biggest classics of Norway, the Lower Rauma. Finally getting the chance to experience it was unreal and it was everything I could have imagined, and more. I not only ended up getting the 3rd descent of Brennenfossen which is an ultra stout that Bren first descented in 2016. I also ended up deciding to run Flemmingsfossen which is one of the most intimidating drops I have done as it has a very hard lip to line up, as well as only about a 20ft window where the drop doesn’t land on rocks. It was one hell of a day and I definitely can’t wait to get back to it, although I don’t think I will be running those 2 stouts again.

The boys didn’t waste any time to get me straight into the stouts for my first day ever in Norway. We put onto the Myrkdal-selva which is one of the sickest runs, but generally done lower. Once on the water the boys made it clear it was higher than they expected, but that didn’t stop us. They just gave me beta the whole way with no scouting. After the first big sequence I was definitely gripped, but I started to get more comfortable as the day went on. It was a a hell of a first day, plenty of stout holes, and nothing but good times.

What a day on Tummy! Sam Grafton, Ben Marr, and Ben Kinsella did the Tum-flush and ran everything. They are beasts and took some stage beatings and had epic lines!

Here are some shots of myself running the Wall, Dam, Chaos, and other easier rapids. What a river, bigger rapids than the Stikine and 5 mins from downtown Derr-town. Enjoy

Flash Floods And Waterfalls In Indonesia

Flash floods and waterfalls in Indonesia

The crew flew out to Indonesia to find some waterfalls and the first one of the trip was a beauty! Had crazy levels and a flashflood in less than 24 hours, crazy to experience that and see how quickly things can change on the river. Looking forward to exploring the country more over the next few weeks! Big thanks to Eddiline kayak club for help with safety and logistics!

I was fortunate enough to travel to China to film a TV piece and get to run a first descent and dream waterfall of mine- the Detian Waterfalls on the boarder of China and Vietnam. It was incredible filled with cultural experiences and some epic first descent waterfalls.

The Rhondu Gorge Of The Indus

The Rhondu Gorge of the Indus

In November Dane met up with the California boys to experience a river like no other, the Rhondu gorge of the Indus. Flowing 86 miles from the valley of Skardu, it has become a river even the top kayakers of the world wonder if they feel up to the challenge. It’s got insane power flowing down steep rapids, creating huge features, making every rapid a stout after the next. It’s a river so big that the first question people get asked when they just completed the Indus, is “how many portages did you do”? Many of the worlds best kayakers often portage, usually between the 5-8 realm. This trip saw the Cali boys portage only 4 times, as well as see Dane get the lowest number of portages ever done, down to 1, by completing the first descent of the infamous Malupa rapid. It was an experience none of them will be forgetting anytime soon, and it’s just one of the places that it’s hard to believe we get to experience with our kayaks.

Juicy Home Run

Super lucky to get some juicy flow on my home river despite january’s cold temperature. This is my Home Run. The river I started kayaking on. My first strokes, my first swims, first fears, first good races, first success…It might not be the most impressive or the best whitewater in the world but it’s still very good and this place will always hold a special place in my heart.
