Turkey Day Southeast Trip!

Brian Aho, Jonny Utah, and Myself took a drive to West Virginia for the weekend. Clear blue skies and in the upper 60's everyday and some great whitewater. We started out Friday doing the Upper Gauley, which was running at the gauley season release levels. Then Saturday we went and ripped it up on the New River Gorge, which was an absolute blast!! Huge play, and huge water.....awesome! Come Saturday night, we decided to switch it up a bit and head to the Russel Fork on the Virginia and Kentucky border. A hellacious drive, about 5 hours through mountains, but it was well worth it!! This weekend couldn't have been any better!!! Good luck down at Jackson Kayak Jonny!!!

Lake Michigan Surfing

Jonny Utah and i went out on the big pond on a winding day about two weeks ago....had an awesome time and caught some 8-12 foot curlers out there. About 40 mph winds and about 40 degrees.

A group of eight of us had another great year down on the Gauley river last weekend! The weather was in the 50's two of the days, and 70's the other two wasn't as crowded as last year, but that was a good thing. They were releasing at 3200 cfs instead of 2800 for some reason. Great time!!

Caught the Fibark Whitewater Festival the first weekend we were out there. All the pro's were there, new tricks were invented and huge air was had. Stephen Wright won the National Mens Championship title, and Tanya Shuman won the women's. We paddled just about the whole Arkansas River stretch between Granite and Canyon City!! Royal Gorge, Granite throught the Numbers, Browns Canyon.....and of course topped our evenings off at the Salida rodeo hole. Probably the best hole in the country....Had an amazing time!
