Cross Mountain Canyon is a short section of scenic whitewater located in the very Northwest corner of Colorado. It is a part of the Yampa River. The last free flowing system in the Colorado River Basin. The flow is around 2,300 cfs.

Late spring thunder storms brought the Blackwater to a perfect level. Art Barket, John Moore, and Shane Groves paddled the entire Upper and Lower Blackwater River three times in one day to set a new record! With over 30 miles of whitewater in one day, perfect levels, and perfect spring time temperatures, it was a day to remember.
After all this paddling I went to the Purple Fiddle in Thomas and saw The Suitcase Junket, a one man band that rocked out! So it was only fitting to put his music on the video. check him out at www.thesuitcasejunket.com


Paddling out of the clouds off Lookout Mountain. First Descent of this North Georgia creek. Continuously steep from top to bottom, this creek kept yielding fun and challenging rapids the whole way. In an area heavily explored by kayakers, this first descent was on the radar of notable explorers such as Mark Cumnock and Jeff West. It wasn't until Adam Goshorn first cleaned and scouted this run that a descent would be made possible. Finally the stars aligned with 3+ inches of rain falling over night, tapering off by early morning. Bear Creek was at 34 inches at around 8:30 that morning and we put on the creek at about 11 am.

I wonder… if… one day…

When a newbie kayaker goes paddling, he discovers a posse of pros on the river and wonders whether someday he could be that cool. A daydream in the eddy transforms the purple-helmeted rookie into a whitewater Adonis. Join kayaker Ben Marr as he takes us to a world where a paddler’s wildest fantasies come true.

In October of 2013 a group of whitewater misfits met in the Andes Mountains of Peru. In search of hidden latin expeditions we dropped into countless amazing canyons. Sample the flavor of a unique Substantial episode that is sure to have you wanting to get out and see what's over the next horizon.
A look over what Team Pyranha North 'Merica has been up to for the past year. Join us on a look over North 'Merica's great whitewater, South 'Merican stouts and a stint in Russia. So strap down to that desk chair or couch, turn up the tunes and take it all in, because we're all Demshitz.
Good time on the taugs. A lot of fun in the slicy boats, the forplay is awesome
Just another rainy West Virginia Christmas. Starting in Beckley, John Moore and Shane Groves paddled the falls on Little Whitestick Creek into Cranberry Creek. Cranberry flows into Piney creek, another nine mile stretch of whitewater. About 4 miles down they hiked up Fat Creek and paddled the last 3/4 of a mile back into Piney that took them all the way to the town of Prince on the New River.
After several weeks of sub zero temperatures and cold winter boating, West Virginia got a warm 60 degree weekend. This melted the snow and caused Manns Creek to run for several days. A large group of paddlers joined together to take on 5 miles of the best steep creeking in the state of West Virginia.
This is the edit from footage shot at the 7th year of the Upper Wind Whitewater Festival. The race course section of the Wind River is a roughly 20-30 minute mass start event of adrenaline fueled Class IV - V paddling, and includes rafts as well as kayakers from all over the Pacific Northwest.

This year brought *perfect* river levels, fantastic weather, and a large turnout of competitive whitewater junkies. For complete event details, go to:
