Made It Back – Great Falls

Made It Back

Great Falls has some of my earliest kayaking memories, but it had been WAY too long since I made it back. I decided to make the long rally up for the race, but also because levels were looking good and the joy kayaking was gonna be great. The levels worked out where I was able to get all the lines I hadn’t done in so many years, and then some more. It was actually an epic day, and I’m so stoked I made the rally.

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!

So Many Moves To Hit

So Many Moves To Hit

Ever since I got the production Antix the one place I couldn’t wait to get it on was the Green. Normally when I am at the Green it is just for the race and I am doing long boat laps and training. Getting the chance to do a summer lap, in the half slice was something else. There were so many sick moves and seams to hit. It was such an epic day, and I definitely plan on getting more laps like this, cause it was just too good.

Dane Jackson – Lower Rauma

Dane Jackson takes a very stout run down the Lower Rauma.

Dane Jackson – Lower Rauma

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.
