How do Yakama Tribal members, kayakers, fish biologists, private and commercial rafters, local land owners, and a region of river conservationists come together to celebrate a newly free-flowing river?
The White Salmon River Homecoming Celebration did just that. The day brought together stakeholders and interest groups with broad range of concerns and interests in the watershed, now that 125 ft Condit Dam is completely gone and the White Salmon River is flowing…Continue

The other day I got the opportunity to spend a little time at the Pigeon River on the feature that has been built there. An incredibly fun, fluffy, bouncy, and retentive hole. I didn't get to spend a whole bunch of time there but did get a bit of video. Enjoy!

I can't think of a weekend this whole year where I didn't go on some sort of adventure, from back country skiing in the Northern Cascades to kayaking trips across the Pacific Northwest. I know it's a bit late, but here's a post from a few weekends ago.

I have had a thing for Canyonlands ever since I was a kid. I grew up in Salt Lake City and would take frequent trips to explore the deserts of Southern Utah with my family. I have great memories…Continue

When you're only sharing the river with a few of your long time kayaking friends, communication is smooth and natural and everyone has a great time. Then summer hits and you're sharing the river with hordes of other paddlers or you may be in a large group with guys and gals you don't know. You can definitely still have those good times; as long as no one gets hurt and everyone is on the same page with "proper river behavior".
So it's always good to read a refresher…Continue

Green Race! My most anticipated race is right around the corner, first racer at high noon this Saturday. The runs are in, the attainments done, the smack is being laid down, bets made, the list of what surrounds this race goes on and on. This year is a special one for me as its my first one back on my road to recovering from a herniated disc. It's been super fun to be a part of everything again and I can't wait to fire out of that start gate. But that's Saturday and this is…Continue
The summer of 2011 has treated both coasts to epic storms and unheard of amounts of water. The Pacific Northwest hasn’t experienced any dramatic flooding, but any local paddler knows that it has been a great year for boating. My favorite local runs including the White Salmon, Cispus, and Lewis River have all kept stable flows late into the summer and still have healthy amounts of water.
The highlight of my summer has undoubtedly been the significant amount of time I’ve been able to…Continue

Big air is king in rodeo.
For playboats, this might mean getting several feet out of the water. However, stabbing the nose of a long boat into a strong hole can produce significantly bigger results.
The Big Air…
I'm just checking in from Canada, where levels are sick and the weather is beautiful.
I went down to the Black River in Watertown, NY this past weekend for a super fun day of racing and hanging out! The Black was the site for the first of the Whitewater King of New York race series, and I wanted to jump in and fire down some of those rapids with the local…Continue

Got to spend some time at Great Falls on the Potomac this past week and man what a fun time! I hadn't paddled there since college and I'd forgotten how much variety there is on that river. Everything from beginner sections to Class V lines on the Falls plus scenic sections ideal for Stand Up Paddle Boards or Rec Kayaks. The thing that struck me the most was how awesome it is to have a river resource like that so close to such a large city. It's pretty wild to think that when you're…Continue

Downriver races on Saturday attracted both World…Continue

Here's a POV Video that I put together from a day this spring out on the Little White Salmon River in Washington. On this particular day the water levels kept at a juicy 4.9-5.0ft. On this high water day, I was lucky enough to be joined by local paddlers Max Blackburn, Lane Jacobs, and Tao Berman. Enjoy the video.
