Salto Pablito

Well back in november when I was in chile, we took Pablo Casey off of his first ever waterfall in a kayak, needless to say with the inherited skills of his dad(Kurt Casey), Pablo stomped it. here is a sweet video. Pablo was 7 at the time

Check out for Kurt's vast knowledge of chilean whitewater.

Well after being shut down to go into Argentina and run the shit, we were forced to stay in Chile and run the shit, i guess life could have been much much worse. The GOL GOL isnt only one of the hardest rivers I have run, but also one of the best rivers I have run. It rests on the Chilean/Argentian border. It starts off with a nice 15 footer, then continues with more beautiful, juicin waterfalls. The volume of this river astounded me. All the waterfalls are stout, with lots of water pouring off of them. Me encanta el Rio Gol Gol. Another amazig chilean rio. All photos by me. And congratulations to all Americans, Obama!

Driving to Argentina before getting shut down.

I had an interesting line, I pulled a clutch 360 right before the lip, had a good line down the waterfall, lost my paddle, pulled my helmet off and rolled with it. Check the Footy from this amazing day in the Demshitz Movie coming out this spring.

2 implosions, 1 helmet roll, and 3 stomps, a good day indeed!!!!

Rio Negro

The rio negro is a very unknown river in southern Chile. Only a few groups have had the pleasure of getting on this one. It is a great little creek with tons of sweet boofs, good waterfalls, a stout 60 footer, and a couple sweet mini-gorges. We were grateful to be able to get on this one. It lies as most chilean creeks do, just below huge volcanoes, and is carved into the basalt rock that gives it its amazing drops. Another amazing chilean creek.
