One week in Canada

Hi all,

After one week of running the shit in British Columbia and Alberta in Canada I am on my way to Salt lake city. Outdoor retailer show is beginning in few days and we have to set up Confluence demos and promos. Though now is a time to make an update from last week. Lot of things happened. I ve met new friends. We ve run some new rivers and there was one bad injury too. Its reminding me to stay safe and do what I wanna do and not whats good for pictures and video. Can definitely recommend that to all the people. But I love to be scared before running some hard shit and be stoked after I ran it. Its hard to decide...

Its definitely more dangerous to watch TV and drive car though. So lets go kayaking!

Upper Cherry creekin'


Happy to be alive after 4 days mission middle, west and upper Cherry like 10 days ago. Upper was too high and that was an oppurnity to come back again few days later with Tim Collins, Eric Giddens and Jake. Was great. We took our time to scout and stay safe. We did all the shit includinng Gorilla, Cherry bomb gorge, Double pot hole, Kiwi in the pocket and Dead bear with leadin.

All of you who can, just get out there. Its flowin perfect for few more days. I am getting scared already because tomorrow we should meet with Epicocity and Wave sport crew to do some shooting and run big waterfalls. Hope will survive it. :)

Have fun
