Photo by: USA Raft What happens when Team Nantahala Outdoor Center, Team Dagger and Team Jackson Kayak combine forces to instruct a clinic together?  110% pure golden good times and this is exactly what happened on February 20, 2016 in the Nolichucky Gorge, NC/TN! Chris Hipgrave initially envisioned this long boat racing clinic with me ...

Compilation of footage clips including as much of the instructional segments of the clinic as I could capture with my GoPro while on the river. This clinic included whitewater kayak racing experts from Team NOC, Team Dagger, & Team Jackson including: Chris Hipgrave, Eric "EJ" Jackson, Adrienne Levknecht, Dane Jackson, Chris Gragtmans, Nick Troutman, Wade Harrison, Tosh Arwood, Mark "Snowy" Robertson, Hunter Cooper and others.

Here is a great video on one of my favorite kayak events of the year, the Russell Fork “Lord of the fork” Race! They filmed some of this footage during the 2015 race and I got a carnage cameo @ 3:41 in it from my flip over at the bottom of El Horrendo....

The white water of the Russell Fork is some of the most difficult and dangerous in the country. Every year on the fourth Saturday in October, kayakers come from around the world to test themselves in the Lord of the Fork competition at Breaks Interstate Park, which straddles Kentucky and Virginia. We learn how the race got its name from one of their fallen brothers, Jon Lord, and how he lives on in his fellow paddlers. Kentucky Life joins these paddlers at 'the beast of the east' to talk about the river's whitewater, kayaking, racing, and the comradery of their lifestyle.

I started out my 2016 New Year of kayaking down the Toxaway put-in slide on Saturday!  It was an absolutely incredible feeling sliding into one of the most monstrous single features I’ve ever paddled down. Then we headed to North Fork French Broad for two fun laps at 4″.  An awesome time with Brian Vermillion ...

Level was -3 on the gauge....put in slide on the Toxaway. Wow what a crazy fun put int
