Ashlu Box Canyon Teaser

The Ashlu box canyon is one of BC's best kayak runs. It runs through one of the most beautiful gorges I have ever seen and unfortunately it is not free-flowing anymore. This past winter it was dammed. After the local government denied the building of the dam, the government of BC created a law to over-ride the local squamish governments power to deny the project. The dam was built. Luckily kayakers fuaght for releases. Keep our rivers free flowing.For more info make sure to check out
Here is a short teaser from just another great day kayaking in BC.
Stay tuned for more.

5Point Film Festival

A few weekends ago, I left Bellingham, WA to go home for the weekend. The 5point filmfestival was happening in Carbondale,CO my home town. It was a great weekend with lots of great films. My Metlako falls short played, along with some other very good paddling films. Tyler Bradt came and played Dream Result, which is a great film and has some epic kayaking indeed. My favorite film of the whole festival though was Anson Fogel's film Wildwater. Anson uses state of the art technology to create the best kayaking footage I have ever seen.I flew into denver and of course right when I hit the mountains the snow started.

Rolling into town getting a good view of Mt. Sopris, damn it was good to be home.

I spent some quality time on my trampoline making brown flips and such.5point filmfest.
A full house at the festival, and a quick screening of my metlako falls video on their super sick blu-ray projector.
Brie, Julie and Beda 5Point filmfest girls who organized the whole event. Thanks a bunch!

Introducing my film, Metlako falls.

This is a slightly shorter version of my film in a bit downgraded quality.
